Exploring the different dimensions of student wellbeing -physical, psychological, social and academic - this book allows students to take control of their university experience, challenge harmful or unhelpful narratives and take simple, practical steps to improve both their learning and wellbeing. The first part of the book helps readers to understand the connection between wellbeing and academic performance. Chapters 2 and 3 consider the impact of factors such as diet, exercise, hydration, sleep and sunlight upon learning. Chapter 4 examines how ‘deep’ learning can improve wellbeing and introduces practical steps readers can take to move away from unhelpful surface-level learning. The remaining chapters help students to better deal with those aspects of university life which typically are a source of stress or anxiety, including procrastination, lack of motivation, exams, presentations, group work, and thinking about life after university.Be Well, Learn Well is ideal for students of any discipline who want to know how to study more effectively, feel calmer and take control of their time at university. First-year students looking to make an effective transition to university will find the book particularly useful, as well as those on courses whose vocational contexts are associated with stress, such as Nursing, Medicine, Social Work and Architecture.
