Like good physical health, good mental health requires action. Whether online, on-campus, or in your community, incorporating a wellness practise into your routine can help build your resilience to stress.

To kick start your wellbeing for Semester Two UQLS Buddies are invited to a lunch time of food and challenges.  Challenge your buddy to a game of Giant Jenga or test your skills with Archery, Frisbee and Flingshot.

Everyone experiences stress to some extent on a daily basis, whether it comes from within or from an outside source. Stress is a normal response and can help to boost brainpower, motivate us, and even make us more resilient to future stresses. However, too much stress - or persistent stress - can negatively impact our wellbeing.

One of the simplest and most effective ways in which you can manage stress involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance. This includes not only looking after yourself physically – for example, through diet and exercise – but also mentally and emotionally.

If taking care of your mental and emotional health is new to you, you might need to shop around for the right fit. Don’t despair if you don’t find the perfect practicise right off the bat! You may find that some practises work for you at certain points in your life and not at others. Or you might find some are not a fit at all. The good news is there are plenty of things you can try and they will all keep you moving in the right direction.
