New health and wellbeing blog launched

The University has launched a new blog focused on health and wellbeing.

The country has been in lockdown for over a month now. That doesn’t mean it has become the new norm – for many it will still feel strange and bring with it a mixture of emotions and challenges to tackle.

How you’re feeling may change day to day, but know that however you’re feeling, it’s likely that others in our Loughborough Family are feeling a similar way. That’s why we are focusing on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our community – because now more than ever, we all need support.

Over the coming weeks, as we all continue to adjust to our new life in lockdown and beyond, we plan to share advice and guidance on a variety of topics that may help you to manage the days ahead. From keeping motivated to not putting too much pressure on yourself. Staying connected to others to exercising from home.

We also plan to share the experiences of individuals from across our community and how they are coping with the new way of working and living. Are you on furlough and want to share your experience of how you’re using your time? Maybe you’re looking after young children and trying to work and have some good ideas on keeping little ones entertained. Have you found your own coping mechanisms in all this strangeness or developed a routine that works for you on a day to day basis? We’d love to hear from you and share your story with others to provide reassurance and guidance.   

If you’d like to contribute, contact Soph Dinnie in the Corporate Communications team on to discuss further.

In this first post, we provide some general guidance on ways to look after your wellbeing daily.
