Help Me Sleep!
Student Wellbeing, Friday 8th May, 4pm - 5pm
One of the most common things we hear is students being unable to sleep. Be it minds racing a hundred miles an hour or the call of Netflix and YouTube being louder than tired bones. Bringing ourselves back to the body is a great way to support us to complete the day and drift off into sleep. Come along and be part of this live whole-body-mindedness session and use the recording to support you in those nightly hours to achieve a good nights sleep.
Relaxation & Meditation Sessions
Beginning this Thursday, 23 April, we'll host a weekly online meditation and relaxation session via Zoom. Each sessions will go for 45 minutes, but will be separated into two parts for those who only have a few minutes to spare.
The first 10-15 minutes will be a super simple but effective breathing technique which can be used anytime and anywhere. Those who can stay for the full session with then take part in a 20 to 30-minute whole-body-mindedness exercise.
