Physical Health

 

Taking care of your physical health involves paying attention to your nutritionhydration, getting enough sleep and looking after your personal safety. This can also include registering with a GP. You can find out more information on how you can do this below. 

Healthy eating 

Taking care of your wellbeing in relation to health is about focusing on the things you can manage and making the choices that work for you.

It's important to maintain a balanced diet at university. To help you, we've put together some helpful resources which contain healthy eating tips that won't leave you out of pocket.

Alcohol and drugs

It's important to be safe when drinking alcohol to ensure you remain in control and don't put your health in danger. We have also included advice from Talk to Frank on dealing with illegal drugs. 

Sports and Movement 

Be Active encompasses any physical activity or movement that works for you, your ability and your other commitments that you find enjoyable!

Physical activity isn’t just about keeping fit. Research shows it can help us to think and feel more positively, sleep better and have more energy which can improve our physical and mental wellbeing.  If you're looking to get involved, you can find more information below on the different sports available at university, including Sporticipate and a complete list of sports societies.
