Be Well, Learn Well: Improve Your Wellbeing and Academic Performance

Description

Help your students take control of their university experience, one step at a time. In Be Well, Learn Well, Gareth Hughes explores the different dimensions of student wellbeing (physical, psychological, social and academic) and helps students understand the connection between their wellbeing and academic performance. Be Well, Learn Well begins by considering the impact of factors such as diet, exercise, hydration, sleep and sunlight on learning, before examining how 'deep' learning can improve wellbeing. Subsequent chapters help students create meaningful connections with their studies, build motivation and approach exams, presentations and group projects with confidence. The final chapter challenges unhelpful narratives around career trajectories and helps students to take small, manageable steps towards their goals. This inspirational guide by the lead author of the UK'sUniversity Mental Health Charterwill empower students of all disciplines to study more effectively, feel calmer and take control of their time at university.
