Welcome to our guide on wellbeing.
We have put together lots of resources on nutrition, exercise, mental health...etc. Use the links below (or the tabs above) to navigate through the pages.

NB This was compiled before the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, so some of the suggestions may not be viable during the current lockdown and while social distancing measures are in place.

Skills from the ResLifeBU team

Did you know that the ResLifeBU team offers a series of workshops for life skills, including cooking, study skills, budgeting... all things that contribute to your wellbeing? Click on the image below for more information.

Reading for pleasure

Books - and libraries - are good for you! Reading reduces stress and depression, and research from  the charity Booktrust, based on a survey of 1,500 adults, reveals that 76% of adults say reading improves their life and makes them feel good.  

During the coronavirus pandemic and while our campus is closed, why not check out what's available in our e-book collection at BU via the Library catalogue. You can use keywords such as fiction or literature or poetry - or whatever topic or genre you are interested in.

You can also join, for free, any of the local public libraries in your area. During lockdown, if you're not already a member, you can register online at LibrariesWest as a temporary user, which will give you access to a huge range of e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines. See their online registration here.
