With funding from BUCs and UK Sport, The SU ran 'Choose Your Day' in the last academic year. 

This was a 12 week programme aimed at boosting mental welbeing through physical activity.

It was a resounding success and we engaged with almost 200 unique participants, 64% of these were not previously known to The SU; and 90% of total participants were female!

Questionnaire responses showed there to be a 20% increase in students doing 30-150 minutes of physical activity per week; and there were marked improvements in feelings of optimism, usefulness, relaxation, a definite and clear increase in perceived ability to deal with problems, ability to think more clearly; and make decisions!!

While statistically lower, it is worth noting that there were small improvements in feelings of closeness to others after participation.

This year we are now pleased to launch our new physical activity programme, with a variety of drop-in physical activity sessions. These sessions will be at minimal cost and free to referrals

 

Hwetha is the Cornish word for 'Breathe' or 'To Play'

Working in partnership with ResLife, we will be putting on a programme of activities to include: Yoga, Table Tennis, Badminton, Social runs, Spinning while watching movies, Dance; and incorporating a variety of Wednesday activities provided by Flexsi Fitness.

In the spirng term when the days lenthen and hopefully the weather is more friendly, we will embrace our great outdoors and include more lovely watersports.
