Researcher Wellbeing Week events 25-Feb to 1-Mar

Posted on Updated on

What could you change to improve your wellbeing?

Next week is Researcher Wellbeing Week at Sussex. The events range from the tame to the exuberant; from the reflective to the energetic; from the academic to the social. Wellbeing for the mind, the body and the spirit are all catered for.

Get some answers to your questions and get some support for your concerns. Whether it’s grilling a panel of supervisors for advice on dealing with PhD stress, pelting over the downs on a mountain bike, or trying to find a moment of inner stillness where the chaos can’t find you, there’s something here for you.
