It's been an unprecedented few weeks... Events started to be cancelled, our university switched to online teaching and then a nationwide lockdown. The main thing is to look after own health and to help our NHS by #stayingathome! It's important to try to look after your mental health and wellbeing, now we're staying home. One of the most positive things is to get out in the fresh air once a day. This is a photo that our #ARUAlumni Officer took whilst out on her exercise break. Do share any photos you take whilst out for a walk with #ARUTogether! Here are some tips for wellbeing from the NHS: 1. Stay connected with people Maintaining relationships with people is important for our wellbeing, so think about how you can stay in touch with friends and family while needing to stay at home. You could try phone calls, video calls or social media instead of meeting in person. 2. Talk about your worries It's normal to feel a bit worried, scared or helpless about the current situation. Remember: it is OK to share your concerns with others you trust – and doing so may help them too. 3. Support and help others Helping someone else can benefit you as well as them, so try to be a little more understanding of other people's concerns, worries or behaviours at this time. 4. Look after your body Our physical health has a big impact on how we feel. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water and exercise regularly. You can leave your house, alone or with members of your household, for 1 form of exercise a day – like a walk, run or bike ride. But make you keep a safe 2-metre distance from others. 5. Do things you enjoy Focusing on your favourite hobby, relaxing indoors or connecting with others can help with anxious thoughts and feelings. If you can't do the things you enjoy because you're staying at home, think about how you could adapt them, or try something new. There are lots of free tutorials and courses online, and people are coming up with inventive new ways to do things, like hosting online quizzes and concerts. #aruanimals #essexcountryside #stayathomesavelives #swansonalake #aruproud #clapforthenhs #clapforkeyworkers #outforawalk

HAPPY FRIDAY from our Science Centre! #ARUProud - Two Biomedical Science Course Representatives in the Science Building (Cambridge Campus) (In the photo: @slushie2699 and @themohshow left to right) Thank you for sending us the photos on Twitter for us to #repost! The Science Centre opened its doors in 2018. At the heart of our Cambridge campus, it's a £45m investment for students and researchers in psychology, life sciences, and biomedical and forensic science. The Centre is home to a range of specialist labs and teaching spaces. Alongside a 300-seat lecture theatre, there's a 200-station biosciences laboratory and a range of psychology labs. #fridayfeeling #theweekendishere #ourstudents #sciencestudents #sciencecentre #biomed #biomedicalscience #biomedicalsciencestudents #angliaruskin #angliaruskinuniversity #arutogether #friends #stemsubjects #studying #campuslife #studentlife #labs #laboratory #dexterslab #studypshychology #lifesciences #forensicscience

"I expected to get a good job once I was done with ARU but I not only got that, I also got a perfect life partner." ❤️ If your love story began at ARU, we want to share it for Valentine's Day as part of #ARUinLove 2020! To get involved, send your story and a photo or two to alumni@anglia.ac.uk! ❤️ This is Tuaha and Mavin's Story ❤️ "I (Tuaha) met my wife at ARU just after returning from my study abroad semester in America. ARU was having a Global week festival so I was dancing in it to show my Pakistani culture with a few of my friends. From the lady who was organising this event I heard that another group of people was interested in dancing on that event and they need dancers so I thought of meeting them. We organised a meet up and in that meet up at Helmore cafe was my wife to be. We met each other and became really good friends from day one. One year fast forward after we became best friends, I asked her out after I fell in love with her and she said yes. Since then we have travelled the world together, got married and are about to buy a house to start our own family soon. I even make YouTube videos for my YouTube channel which is called "Tuaha Sultan" about our experiences while travelling the world. Never in my wildest dream could I have imagined meeting my life partner when I was applying to ARU so I will always be grateful to this amazing university. I expected to get a good job once I was done with ARU but I not only got that, I also got a perfect life partner." #Angliaruskin #ARU #angliaruskinuniversity #lifepartner #husbandandwife #weareinternational #internationalstudents #lovestory #aruinlove #lovestory2020 #valentinesday2020 #valentinesday #rome2020 #colosseum #traveltheworldtogether #arutogether #metatuni #couplesinlove
