RGU Gymnastics: Wellbeing Wednesdays

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

This semester, RGU Gymnastics are helping to spread positivity throughout their social media accounts.


‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’ is a new initiative that RGU Gymnastics has set up, where they promote a quote that has a positive message behind it.


Due to the covid-19 epidemic, a lot more of us are struggling with mental health issues. From financial worries to severe loneliness, 2020 has been a very challenging time for us all. In a year with very little hope, ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’ has been extremely important in helping to put a smile on our faces.


‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’ started on the 30th of September and, so far, there have been quotes from many different sources. From the book, ‘Little Women’, to the legendary Audrey Hepburn, each quote highlights that whilst we all face difficulties we do always find our way out of the darkness.


Each week’s post offers advice on how to deal with stress and anxiety. From simple tips such as watching your favourite TV show to getting a good night's sleep; it is vitally important to remind ourselves to maintain self-care, especially in such difficult times.


Charities that can offer advice and support for mental health issues are also highlighted. These organisations include RGU Nightline and RGU Peer Support which are peer to peer support groups, run by students for students. These groups are free and accessible for all RGU Students. For more information visit https://www.rguunion.co.uk/support/peersupport/ and/or https://rgu.nightline.ac.uk/


We look forward to seeing all of RGU Gymnastics' future ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’ social media posts. If you are struggling at all with mental health issues, please reach out. Whilst RGU Nightline and RGU Peer Support exist, your lecturers and course leader will also be able to help. Just because we are separated this semester, does not mean you are on your own.
