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 5 Ways to Wellbeing in improving student wellbeing.

There are some simple things we can do every day to help us interact with the world around us.


Getting Started: 

Please take the next 3 weeks to follow these simple tasks to help find out your answers. We suggest splitting it by doing and thinking time – 30 mins a day doing the task and 30 mins a day thinking it through.


After Each Task:  

  • Find yourself a pen, notebook, time, quiet space and an open mind

  • Spend some time reflecting and take note of how it has made you feel. Would you do it again?

Please note this is simply guidance and there is no wrong way to do this      

Task 1

    Take Notice

  • Walk or drive a different route to work/uni/the shops and notice 3 things of interest

  • In the same way, ‘Collect’ 5 kindnesses others have given you

Task 2


  • Give something to someone today; kind words, a compliment, a smile

  • Give time to help someone: directions, opening doors

Task 3


  • Read news from a different source

  • Listen to a different radio station

  • Speak to someone you’ve never spoken to

Task 4


  • Dance for 5 minutes

  • Put your comfy shoes on and get walking/running/jogging. Just put one foot in front of the other and go. Do it for fun – remove any targets

  • Leave the car at home and get on foot

Task 5


  • Phone an old friend

  • Speak to your neighbour

  • Ask the person serving you in the shop how they are

  • Learn the name of someone you didn’t know before

Thank you for taking part in the Great Student Wellbeing Experiment.
