What is Wellbeing?
Wellbeing is about managing your mental, physical, emotional and financial health to ensure you have a balanced lifestyle, enjoy what you do, and set yourself up for a long and rewarding career.
At times of stress, it is even more important to look after yourself by eating well, getting enough sleep, getting away from the books to do some physical activity, and keeping up with activities you enjoy. Wellbeing is deeper than looking at diet and exercise. It is about learning what sustains and supports you as an individual to achieve all that you need to do to complete your medical studies, sane and whole. It may be about family time, it may be about sporting activities, it may be about establishing rhythms of sleep and wake which reduce fatigue. Developing this knowledge as a student will set the foundation for your future as a health professional
