Take a break

Taking breaks is extremely important for your wellbeing and can even increase your productivity during long study sessions. If you're studying on campus, here are some of our recommendations. 

Eat well and stay hydrated

Grab a drink or something to eat from one of our Food Outlets on campus. There are also Meal Deals available at some outlets. You can find more information, including opening times and what they serve on myLSBU

There are water fountains located outside each of the doors of our Southwark Campus Library

Visit the Relaxation Station

Head to Training Room 3 in the LSBU Hub to visit the Relaxation Station, your space to unwind and take a deep breath during this busy period. There is colouring, crosswords, sudoku, jigsaw puzzles and origami set up to help you relax and overcome exam stress.

The Relaxation Station will be open between 10am and 5pm but there will be activity sheets left out by the sofas for you to access after the room is closed.

Get outside

Getting some fresh air and a change of scenery can help to relieve stress and improve your concentration when you resume studying. 

Spend time with friends

Use the breakout and outdoor spaces on campus to socialise with your friends and coursemates. Take your mind off your studies and check in with each other's wellbeing.

Resources for Wellbeing

Health and Wellbeing at LSBU Information

Wellbeing Moodle Modules

There are a number of online resources on Moodle to help minimise and aid you in coping with your stress levels.

Modules include:

  • Mindset Matters - develop positive learning and wellbeing skills to become a confident, resilient learner
  • Being Well, Living Well - learn how to maintain a healthy body and mind while at University 

General Wellbeing Tips

  • Look after yourself!  Eat well and stay hydrated. Get enough sleep. Take regular breaks.
  • Get organised! It can help if you plan your revision days – allocate times that you will sit and revise to ensure you have time to cover all the topics.
  • Ensure you keep enough time free on the day - a 24-hour window can allow other events to interrupt your day.
  • Get outside and spend time in nature - a change of scenery and fresh air can be refreshing.
