Hello Test,

We hope you're doing well as we reach the middle point of term. Our wellbeing theme this week is around managing stress, anxiety and change - check out resources and sessions to help you as we continue through exam season. There's still time to get involved in the Warwick Sustainability Challenge for a £400 prize, and the Warwick Award Pilot. Join #MySummerNetworking events to connect with employers, build face-to-face networking skills and explore career options. And finally, get excited for our Crystal Maze experience - coming to campus on June 11!

Managing stress, anxiety and change

We have all experienced a lot of change over the last couple of years, and while change is a part of life and can be managed well at times, it can also be very unsettling. Change can be planned and anticipated with excitement, such as finishing university or starting a new job, but it can still be difficult and can bring on anxiety. If feeling stressed and anxious is affecting your day-to-day life, then we have lots of support for you including self-help pages on stress and anxiety. These contain evidence-based strategies that can help you feel calmer and more in control. For changes, the Managing Change Masterclass has lots of information, tips and support. To help build your skills to manage these feelings, you may want to sign up for our Feeling Good and Functioning Well masterclass.

If you would like to speak to someone in the Wellbeing team, please access our Wellbeing Portal where you can join a virtual queue for a brief consultation with an adviser, Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.
