As we head into the colder months and prepare for the festive break, we are starting to experience darker nights and the typical British wet weather, and with that, many people may experience feeling a little more low than usual. This is because the reduced level of sunlight can have a negative impact on your mental wellbeing and disrupt your body, causing you to feel fatigued.

We want you to know that you are not alone during this time; we are here to support you and offer you practical advice when it comes to beating the winter blues! 

One of the best ways to support your wellbeing is to stay connected with those around, including your university peers. As your Students’ Union, we have put together a timetable of Winter Wellbeing events and activities taking place during December, hosted by your VP Wellbeing & Diversity, Student-Led Volunteering team, and other SU staff and student volunteers.
