Marya says: “I found the wellbeing programme very useful in bringing our spirits up and recommending us some activities in which we can do to pass time. The activities are not just enjoyable but also help us to improve ourselves such as our health when following the workout videos, our photography skills when participating in the daily photograph challenge and most importantly, they have taught me how to live slower and enjoy every single moment in life.”
It has been wonderful to see the level of engagement to date and the amazing creativity and talent shown by our students. Marya is a wonderful example of a student who has successfully balanced the requirements of her academic learning whilst maintaining a focus on her own personal positive wellbeing. Her daily entries to the Wellbeing Photo Challenge have maintained the strong connection she shares with her Tutor and Wellbeing teacher and given an insight into some of the positive benefits we can take from this time – the opportunity to participate in new experiences, learn new skills, discover new talents, connect with others and spend some real quality time with family.
“Since the start of the wellbeing program, I've participated in the daily photograph challenge which allowed me to discover a lot of wonderful things to take pictures of in my house. I was really surprised that we can still take lots of good pictures even when we're not allowed to go outside. There is one thing I really enjoy when staying home, it's that I've found myself quite fascinated with baking. It was such fun being able to create lots of good food and since then, my kitchen has always been full of a wonderful aroma,” explains Marya.
