11:30 - 12:15 - Physical Health & Wellbeing 
Are you moving enough? We may know that activity is beneficial for our physical health, but did you know that it can help with maintaining balanced and positive mental health as well? This workshop, presented by Delta Fitness, offers simple tips and tricks for all stages - beginners to experts - on how to keep your body moving and your mind at peace.

12:30 - 13:15 - Nutrition & Wellbeing
Are we really what we eat? A balanced diet and good nutrition helps to support our wellbeing in many ways - giving us energy, keeping us focussed and reducing stress levels and anxiety. This workshop, offered by Delta Nutrition, will cover easy ways to fuel your body and mind for better mental health and wellbeing.

13:30 - 14:15 - Getting a Better Nights' Sleep
Are you getting a good nights' sleep? This workshop presented by Enabling Services will provide information on best sleep practices, increase awareness of sleep routines, and help to determine the key factors that might be preventing those sweet dreams.

14:30 - 15:00 - Mindfulness Taster Session
Are you mindful? Mindfulness is about learning to be in the moment and move away from ruminating on the past or worrying about the future. Studies show that this helps to reduce the level of stress we experience. This taster session will include an introduction to informal mindfulness practices, including meditation and a variety of exercises aimed at bringing greater awareness, clarity, concentration and choice to experience.

15:15 - 16:00 - Art Therapy Taster Session (available to students only)
Are you creative? Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person's physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. This interactive workshop offered by The Priory will allow students to experience the process of Art Therapy and work towards creating something whilst improving their wellbeing at the same time.
