How to invest in yourself & prioritise your well-being

Investing in yourself means you are putting in the time, money, and energy into making your current and future life better. There are several methods to being self-investment; here are some ways to start:

  • Furthering your knowledge: Reading books, listening to informative podcasts, learning a new skill, or completing an online course (free courses are available on the website).
  • Your social circle: Networking is a significant tool that can contribute towards personal development. Staying in touch with family and friends in/out of university or expand your social circle by joining a recreational club/society. We have many to choose from on campus.
  • Engage in creative activities: This can teach one how to think differently whilst having fun trying something new. There are many ways of engaging in these activities, Norwich has a range of events that promote creativity, and you can even look out for some on campus!
  • Practice mindfulness: Spending as little as 10 mins a day, meditating or going on a walk can have tremendous effects on the brain.
  • Prioritising physical health: This looks different for everyone, for example, you may decide to exercise for 30 mins a day, trying more homemade meals, or going to a medical appointment you may have been delaying for a while, such as the dentist.
  • Managing your income: It is important that as a university student, you manage your money effectively through budgeting. If you are struggling, you can book an appointment with the welfareSU team here.
