Hello from the Nottingham College Student Wellbeing team! 

Well, it’s been an unusual week or so, to say the least.

We are learning to adapt to home working, communicating through technology and adjusting to a new kind of normal.

We know that this is a difficult and challenging time for staff and students to adjust to, but we thought we would share what’s going on, to help you keep motivated and look after your wellbeing over the next few weeks.

We thought we would share some of the top tips that we have picked up over the last week. The tips were designed with our students in mind, but hopefully even if you’re not one of our students you’ll find something that is of interest!

Laura Archer, Student Wellbeing Manager says:

Try to set yourself some kind of routine. It can be flexible, but getting up, getting dressed and setting tasks for the day, no matter how big or small, can help feel like you still have some structure.”

Liam Perkins, Wellbeing Coordinator Student Voice suggests:

Keep in contact with family and friends as much as possible. You could use video chat to make it feel more personal. Schedule time with friends to all go online at the same time for example. Most importantly, keep checking in on each other.”

Will Thompson, Wellbeing Coordinator Enrichment says exercise is really important:

Remember to make time during the day to do something active. 30 minutes a day is usually recommended to help keep you healthy, and that can be anything from a walk with your dog to a more intense workout using a YouTube video as a guide. 

Do something to suit your level of fitness of course. With the technology we have around now it couldn’t be a better time to easily find these. ”

What else can I do?

Don't forget to keep in touch!

As a team we also want to make sure we stay in touch with our current students and respond with any advice or support we can offer. 

These are extraordinary times, and we are all working out our own way to manage them. if you’re a student of ours, get in touch with the Wellbing team through our social media accounts listed above, or by emailing wellbeing@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk with any questions. 

We would also love to hear how you are keeping busy and any top tips you have that we can share with others too!
