Over at Student Wellbeing they know just what a stressful term the spring term can be! Essays to complete, exams to prepare for, heavy workloads to juggle – all of which can be hard to handle. To help students develop the skills to manage these issues, they have added two extra ‘Life Tools’ talks next week. (These are in addition to the Mindfulness talk on Tuesday 26th January).
The first is a short introductory presentation (30 minutes) giving advice and immediate techniques for managing anxiety or dealing with stress. This talk is open to all students and is particularly relevant for anyone thinking about getting support or who simply wishes to increase their resilience. The presentation will be given by Dr Alicia PeñaBizama, Head of student Wellbeing on Wednesday 27th January at 12.00 noon in Carrington building, room 101.
The second talk deals with the issue of perfectionism and how to overcome it. ‘Overcoming perfectionism’ will give advice and strategies on completing work and making sure it is handed in…… on time! This talk will also be on Wednesday 27th January at 1.00pm in Palmer building, room 104.
Both talks are additions to the Spring Life Tools talks programme and are being run to provide additional support for students who are keen to take control of their personal wellbeing and increase their resilience.
