It’s that time of year again; most people are trying to keep to their new resolutions and get their plans in gear for what they want to achieve in the next 12 months. Some are even aiding their plans with new apps and technologies they got over the holidays. It’s also when students are getting their heads down to study for the impending exams.
It’s going to be stressful, which is why it’s great to see so much support available for the students through Exam Extra, which have sessions involving calm and croissants, January de-stress with SPORT and the Muse headbands are back to help people get mindful. I asked Charlotte Evans, of Teaching, Learning and Students, how the first week had gone so far and she told me we’d had over 60 students in for a croissant, and over 175 dropping by the Lifecycle of Revision stand.
In addition to exam preparation this may also help students who have their own New Years Resolutions, since resolutions tend to revolve around fitness & health, mindfulness & well-being and becoming more organised. And for those who resolve to “learn something new” or “do something exciting” (two of the next most popular resolutions) there are two exciting Digilabs coming our way in February and March. And all of that makes for a very Happy New Year!
