Student wellbeing tips: staying healthy at uni

Students Wellbeing - Blue i Properties specialist student letting in Derby, understand the importance of student wellbeing 
University can be a stressful time and here at Blue i, our tenants’ wellbeing is important to us.

Adjusting to uni life can be tough. Besides your academic studies, for many first years it will be their first time living away from home.

This brings increased independence but also more responsibility.
But don’t worry because here are some tips on how to stay healthy…

  1. It’s OK to take breaks
Balance is incredibly important for a healthy lifestyle.
You have to manage your finances, ensure that you are eating properly, and stay on top of your studies.
These changes can lead to you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and distressed and when you feel this way, you tend to neglect your physical wellbeing.
This is why it’s important to set aside time for activities that you enjoy or to simply relax.
Besides giving you a chance to unwind, scheduling free time gives you something to look forward to and can even make you more productive.
  1. Your brain gets hungry and tired too!
A balanced diet and sleep are crucial for your physical wellbeing, but also your mental health and academic success.
Your brain is approximately 2% of your total body weight but it takes up about  of your resting  a day.
By not eating, you’re depriving it of much-needed energy which can lead to a decrease in your mood, concentration, and memory.
Likewise, studies have shown that sleep reinforces your memory.
When revising, it may seem like a good idea to pull an all-nighter, but by neglecting sleep, you’re not giving your brain a chance to consolidate that revision.
  1. Managing stress: you aren’t alone Students Wellbeing - Blue i Properties specialist student letting in Derby, understand the importance of student wellbeing
Anxiety and depression are by far the most commonly reported mental health issues among students.
According to YouGov, 74% of sufferers reported an anxiety-related problem and 77% reported a depression-related problem.
But you shouldn’t let these problems go unchecked; there are people who want to help.
A survey found that 74% of students would, “show concern and be mindful of a person’s troubles.”
The University of Derby’s Student Wellbeing Service also provides a free and confidential counselling service to all students regarding any issue.
