At Student Wellbeing we have had a large number of students coming in to talk with us about the problems they are having sleeping! Getting to sleep, sleeping through the night, disturbed sleep patterns – all can have a hugely detrimental effect on the ability to concentrate, to study, to attend lectures and hand work in on time. So what can be done about this problem?
Interestingly, there are many things you can do to improve your sleep pattern and sleep better. To find out more students just need to come to the next ‘Life Tools’ talk: ‘Getting a good night’s sleep’ which is on Monday 9 May, at 1.00pm in Carrington Room 101. At this talk, Dr Claire Gregor will provide practical resources including relaxation and mindfulness tools such as a Body Scan, and tips on improving the quality of your sleep and sleeping better.
This talk is one of a series run by Student Wellbeing. This is what students who have attended this talk in the past have said about it:
“Gives advice with direction to multiple techniques and resources”
“Full of useful, practical advice. Definitely worth giving a try”
“Really handy tips and ways of improving your thinking so you feel less worried about getting to sleep”
“It makes reference to scientific studies and proven psychological methods”
“Go to this talk!”
The talk is open to all students and there is no need to book – just turn up on the day.
