10 tips for a better night’s sleep

A good night’s sleep is just as important for your health as regular exercise and a balanced diet. But if you struggle to nod off or wake up throughout the night, it can be incredibly frustrating. And before you know it, you’re feeling anxious at the idea of not being able to sleep – which keeps you up even longer. If this sounds familiar, check out these 10 tips for getting a better night’s sleep.

Turn up the heat to improve veggies

Vegetables are a great source of vitamins and minerals, and an essential part of a balanced diet. There’s often a general assumption that eating raw veg is better for you than cooked – but that’s not necessarily the case. There are a handful of vegetables that have even more goodness when cooked. Check out this blog to learn more and liven up tonight’s pasta bake!

How to workout like a weekend warrior

Was getting more exercise one of your New Year’s resolutions? It’s one thing many of us would like to devote more time to. But with studying, attending classes, work, family life and leisure, it’s often something we struggle to squeeze into our busy lives. But the good news is you can still reap huge health benefits, even if you only workout on a weekend.

Sports membership

Sports membership at the University doesn’t just get you access to the gym (although this is a clear advantage!). You also get unlimited fitness classes like yoga and spinning, use of the sports hall and outdoor pitch, climbing wall, sauna, badminton and squash courts. Plus, as a member, you can benefit from personal programmes and mini MOTs with gym instructors. Membership costs £40 per semester and you can sign up now.

Mental wellbeing matters

Our mental health affects how we think and feel and how we cope with everyday life. Your university experience should be enjoyable, but it’s not unusual for students to encounter difficulties with their mental health from time to time. Whether you have a diagnosis or not, our team of specialist advisers and practitioners can support you and find ways to help manage your mental wellbeing at university.
