Active wellbeing

Exercise makes you feel better. This doesn’t have to mean going to the gym. Instead, find something you enjoy that fits your level of mobility and fitness. This could be going for a run or walk, a bike ride, playing a sport or even gardening. 

We offer a range of free active sessions, available to all students and led by a wellbeing practitioner. Details about the sessions and links to book onto them can be found below. 

Why active wellbeing?

Hannah Prestwich (SU officer for Wellbeing, Sport and Physical Activity 21/22) talks to Wellbeing Practitioners about their active sessions and why these can be so good for enhancing wellbeing.
