On top of the exciting events throughout the week, we have also put together a range of resources that may be useful.

UQ Student Services have a range of self-help resources where you can learn strategies to help improve your mental health, personal relationships and physical health. Included in the many resources, is a page dedicated specifically to exam-anxiety.

There are a range of Aps that you can download that assist with managing stress and anxiety, such as ReachOut Breathe, Smiling Mind, and Headspace. Recharge - Move Well, Sleep Well, Be Well is a personalised six-week program that helps improve your general health and wellbeing by focusing on four key areas:

  1. A regular wake and sleep time each day, achieved gradually over six weeks;
  2. An alarm clock that triggers fun activities designed to get you up and out of bed;
  3. Increasing your exposure to daylight early in the day, to help reset your body clock; and
  4. Encouraging you to increase physical activity, especially within two hours of waking up.

Our Green Ambassador Program Community also shared their ideas as to how we can show ourselves, and the planet, some love naturally. Read their DIY: Beautiful sustainable self-care’ article to learn more.

About Having a sustainable exam period

Maintaining your physical and mental health during busy and stressful periods of life is really important. This exam period, UQ Sustainability has worked alongside UQ Life, UQ Wellness, and UQ Student Services to bring you a range of resources and events targeted towards supporting a sustainable study and exam period.

We believe that whilst caring for the planet, we simultaneously nurture ourselves, supporting the synergetic relationship between the overall health of people and the environment.
