Live well

Live well - what does that mean exactly? Well, from a health perspective it simply means making lifestyle choices on a day to day basis that enable you to feel physically and mentally well.

These daily choices have a big effect on your quality of life, your work and studies, how you feel about yourself, your general outlook on life and of course your health and wellbeing - both now and in the future.

What does healthy living look like to students and staff?

Philip Bruland's winning entry for the Picture of Health competition.

Our picture of health campaign highlighted many examples. In essence it is a combination of different things that help you live well including being active, eating well, managing stress and having fun. The key is finding a balance - having realistic expectations of yourself, your time and of others around you. Making progress is what's important, not perfection.
