Stress Less in January!

Tuesday 20 December 2022 11:30 News

In partnership with Move Imperial, we are running a Stress Less campaign to help you unwind and de-stress this exam season!

Studying for and sitting exams can be a stressful time, however, regular short bursts of exercise can go a long way to improve mood, aid better sleep and reduce stress. Any type of physical activity will have a positive impact on your mood and wellbeing. It doesn’t have to be very intense or time-consuming, even a short walk in between study blocks will help, and walking can be a great form of moving meditation.

100 Days as Deputy President (Finance & Services)

Deputy President (Finance & Services)

In a very stereotypical start to this blog, I can’t believe almost a third of this year has already passed. Having joined the full-time party a bit late as I was finishing my Masters, the first stretch of this year felt like playing a bit of catch-up. Turns out there was a lot I didn’t know, and everyday ends up as a learning experience.

Deputy President (Education)

I’m not really sure where the time has gone – we’ve nearly reached a third of the whole year already! The last few months have essentially been a massive trial by fire – I’ve been learning so many things and meeting so many people that I hadn’t even realised we’d reached 100 days.

Deputy President (Welfare)

Time passes really quickly when you’re a sabbatical officer. Time is an incredibly valuable inexhaustible resource, and I have learnt to make the best use of every precious minute I have in my current role, because once I reach the end of July 2023, that will officially be the end of my tenure. Last year was all about quick wins and short term changes – this year is going to be all about setting up the Union for success in the long term, whilst continuing to campaign on critical issues.
