Having 'good wellbeing' could be defined as feeling comfortable, safe and happy. Your wellbeing is affected by your physical health as well as your mental health, and a number of other factors such as how you are getting on with your studies, your financial circumstances, and your personal relationships. It may be useful to think of your health more broadly. The World Health Organisation define health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." You can find read more about looking after your health and wellbeing on UniHub and on our #TeamMDX wellbeing toolkit page.
Our approach at Middlesex is one of health promotion, meaning that we encourage you to proactively look after your health by getting into healthy habits and practicing self-care. We have a number of resources to support you with this. We also encourage you to reach out for support when you need it. You should do this as soon as you feel like you need support rather than waiting. You can find a summary of Support and Wellbeing at Middlesex on UniHub which includes information on how services are operating in a Covid-secure way.
Take a read of our Student Health Guide below which offers a good overview of self-care and keeping healthy at University.
