Mood Boosting for January

We know that University life can sometimes be challenging. That is why we have put together a collection of books on a wide range of topics around personal health and well-being.

Whether you’re interested in managing stress and learning some new relaxation techniques, or having more difficult mental health issues, there are books here that can help.  Why not look at our books on cookery, nutrition and exercise.

There is useful material available on Health and Well-being from Student Support, visit:

 What can I do if I don’t have a lot of time?​

University can be a busy time, which can make it harder for you to take the time to look after your mental wellbeing. When you’re busy, stresses can mount up and really take their toll - so it’s important to take the time to prioritise your own mental wellbeing. ​If you have:

10 minutes

1 hour

Watch an episode of your favourite TV show
