Skills for Learning > Live well for learning
Living well for learning means taking care of your physical and mental health. If you aren't eating or sleeping well or if there are things that are worrying you, it is unlikely that you will be at your best for study. Getting out and doing some physical activity is a great social activity and stress reliever. Even if you don't consider yourself 'sporty' there is something for everyone. Whether you choose to take part in a team sport, visit the gym, go for a walk with friends, go to a fitness class or do Park Run with your kids it all counts and you’ll feel better for it.
Watch this short video of students talking about how sport and physical activity have influenced their experience of studying at Salford.
