Be active this April with HealthyU, HealthyUs, HealthyUniversity

March 26th, 2024

Across the whole month of April, the university’s HealthyU, HealthyUs, HealthyUniversity campaign is highlighting the wellbeing theme ‘Be Active’.

Being active benefits our health in so many ways, both physically and mentally. Regular exercise can help improve your energy levels, quality of sleep, memory and mood.

It can help to reduce anxiety and stress, as well as contribute to overall happiness. For more information and tips on keeping active, visit HealthyU.

Get involved with 2 competitions – open to students and staff

Active April step challenge

We are encouraging everyone to keep moving over the holidays and get out in the fresh air (and hopefully sunshine!), to benefit physical and mental health. Regular activity has so many health benefits and it also gives us a break from study and work. To help you stay active, HealthyU have collaborated with UoN Sport to host a Moves step challenge for the month of April. We invite you to take 240,000 steps across the month (averages 8,000 steps a day).

For full details visit the HealthyU campaign page. All staff and students are welcome to take part. Register with Moves+ and click on the challenge, which will be active from Monday 1 April 2024. Everyone who completes the challenge will be entered into a prize draw to win a £30 Amazon voucher (for staff) or a £100 Amazon voucher or Polaroid camera (for students).

My Great Outdoors photo competition

Is there an outdoor place where you enjoy getting active? Love a stroll around your local park? Feel most at home up a mountain? Whatever the place or the activity, post a photo of your favourite outdoor space and be in with a chance of winning a £50 Amazon voucher.

To enter:

1. Upload your photo and give it a name
2. Email with your details and the name of your post (so we can identify the winner).

Please note, we encourage staff to get involved too, but prizes are funded for students only.
