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.
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
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
Give something to someone today; kind words, a compliment, a smile
Give time to help someone: directions, opening doors
Read news from a different source
Listen to a different radio station
Speak to someone you’ve never spoken to
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
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
