What is important to you, what are you good at and what do you care about?
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 Personal Resources in improving student wellbeing.
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?
Values influence the decisions we make.
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
Being the best
Making a difference
Dig through some old photos and find 1 photo that sticks out to you and brings back happy memories.
If you can’t access photos, try using songs.
Put yourself, as best you can, into the picture you have found and using the word set again, choose 5 words that you feel most resonate with you. Prioritise these 5 words in order of importance to you and write what they mean to you, don’t use a dictionary!
What are you good at?
Qualities are attributes we naturally have and we use them to benefit our life and work.
On the world stage – who do you admire and why?
Group all the thinking together and note if there are similarities, common themes or words?
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:
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.
