Walk or cycle to campus with a greener commute

With climate and pollution often dominating the news these days, it's not surprising that more of us are looking at cleaner (and healthier) means of getting to and from campus. 

If you're motivated to walk all or part of your commute, the Clean Air Route Finder allows you to put in any route and be shown a low pollution walking option. Or, if you're looking for a two wheel solution, you can save on a bike courtesy of the School's cycle to work scheme. 

Take a look at our environmental wellbeing page for more ideas about how you can go greener and boost your wellbeing at the same time. 

Boost your nutritional know-how

A little attention to your nutritional and dietary arrangements can do everything from contributing to increased energy levels, alertness and productivity as well as supporting those living with health conditions.

Often good decision making and sensible choices over a sustained period of time will contribute to avoiding a number of relatively serious health concerns in the future altogether.

Simple adjustments can make the world of difference such as ensuring moderate alcohol consumption or reducing your intake of salt, sugar and some fats.

The British Nutrition Foundation has a full range of information on diet through all stages of life and longer term health conditions from toddlers, pregnancy and 50 plus as well as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, weight management and much more.

Tackle that harmful habit

Support to stop smoking

Smoking in society is clearly on the decline in recent years however nearly as many as 1 in 5 adults still smoke, with many wishing to quit but finding it difficult to achieve. Often there will be a number of attempts to stop smoking before they are successful which can be de-motivating and frustrating.

Needless to say, people don't want to be told what to do and it is essential to find what approach is right for you. Take a look at the NHS campaign Stoptober which has been successful for many and contains useful information which in combination with a supportive social network and smoke free environments could secure the road of success sooner.


Support for alcohol and drug issues

Drug and alcohol misuse is a complex issue and while this affects the minority of people, the impact often extends to others in their support network both personally and at times can also be evident in professional situations, which by then can result in serious health consequences for the individual and their colleagues.

If you feel you have an issue, or are on the border line of an issue in dealing with drug or alcohol misuse, it is important to seek support from either friends or family, your GP, HR Partner or an alternative reputable source of information and support such as SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery help people to decide whether they have a problem, build up their motivation to change and offers a set of proven tools and techniques to support recovery.

People can stay with SMART as long as they wish. There is no requirement to make a lifetime commitment to the programme, just to their recovery and leading a healthier life.

Many people find that continuing to participate in SMART after they have recovered helps them avoid lapses or relapses.
