The Great Student Wellbeing Experiment
Welcome to the Great Student Wellbeing Experiment!
Thank you for helping us test the science.
You have been randomly selected to test the relevance of Multiple Components in improving student wellbeing.
Wellbeing is about knowing who you are, reaching your potential and increasing your contribution to the world around you for the betterment of all.
The challenge comes with knowing what that means to us as individuals and understanding what we need to do to make it a reality.
What is important to you, what are you good at and what do you care about?
What's important to you?
In the words of Katy Perry, "If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything!"
Many philosophers support Katy's view, it's simple - if you don't know what's important to you, how can you make decisions?
What are you good at?
Qualities are attributes we naturally have and we use them to benefit our life and work.
What do you like doing?
Passion gives us energy, it makes us feel good but it is short lived. It’s important to identify the things that make our lives bright.
Passion is about what we do not why we do it.
Passions can be selfish and self - indulgent and that’s okay so put yourself first in these tasks:
To help achieve wellbeing, you sometimes need to be able to change your mindset, get a different perspective, and adopt new behaviours.
To be able to maintain wellbeing you need to be able to do these things regularly and you need to initiate this functioning yourself.
In order to do this, we need to be shown how and then we can adopt these tools for our benefit.
5 Ways to Wellbeing
There are some simple things we can do every day to help us interact with the world around us.
Purpose is a big concept – a big question – ‘What are you here to do?’ so let’s boil it down.
We are here for who knows how long and during this time we do things. Some things are important and other things aren’t important. The important things bring you happiness and meaning, the unimportant things kill time.
Discovering one’s ‘purpose’ in life essentially comes down to finding those one or two things that are bigger than yourself, and bigger than those around you. It’s not about some great achievement, but merely finding a way to spend your limited amount of time well.
Finding purpose takes energy and reflection.
Telling Your Story
How many times have you sat down and really thought about your story? How did you get here?
If you think about any good stories, there are characters, story lines, plots, highs and lows. Our lives are no different.
Thank you for taking part in the Great Student Wellbeing Experiment.
We will send you the second survey to enable us to look at the differences this project may have made.
