With all the craziness of uni life, sometimes it’s easy to forget to rest so I thought I’d share some ways that I like to relax and take a break whilst on campus.
Take a class
Whether you’re an art junkie or more of a yoga fan, you can take a range of classes that run during the day at The Edge art centre. This is super convenient for those days when you have a massive, awkward gap between lectures as all the classes are held on campus.
One lunchtime after I’d finished a lecture, I decided to try out a Freedom Flow Yoga class. Booking it in advance is advisable but you can also book 10 minutes before – perfect for when you’re hit by a wave of stress and need some yoga to find your zen again.
The class was a good combination of breathwork, meditation and stretching – I definitely felt refreshed after it. I’d really recommend checking out what’s on at The Edge and make use of the stunning facilities!
Have a coffee break
(or just about any other hot drink)
Whether you need a pick-me-up or need something to help defrost your hands in this cold weather, a hot drink is the best way to take some time out before heading to your next lecture. Click here for a full list of all the food and drink places on campus.
After my yoga class, I decided to stop by The Edge café and pick up a hot chocolate before I went out to face the freezing cold! The café is also a really nice place to do some work if you want a chilled work environment.
Take a walk
There are so many beautiful walks around campus and it’s a perfect way to get some alone time or to enjoy a relaxed walk with a friend.
Obviously, it’s cold in the winter but even a simple stroll around the lake to catch some fresh air is definitely going to lift your spirits!
Here are a few pictures from my walks around uni on various occasions!
