As it's getting even colder in our part of the World here is some advice on how to beat the winter blues ❄️🥶

6 ways to beat the Winter blues, by BBK student Shweta Menon ❄️💙👇

1: Get loads of sunlight ☀️

Push yourself to go outdoors and soak in the little bit of daylight that’s available even if it’s cold outside. Exposing yourself to daylight helps improve your serotonin levels. And if like most of us you are occupied during the day hours with work, studies and other activities get yourself a SAD lamp or sunlight lamp to stimulate daylight.

2: Eat yourself happy 🥑

It's important to remember to eat well. Sugar and carbohydrates may make you feel happy and satisfied in the moment but eventually will lead to your blood sugar crashing. So why not make yourself a nice warm bowl of winter vegetable soup or chilli to warm up your day?

3: Get active 🧘

Research shows that exercising helps your body to release the feel-good hormone serotonin. Even if it’s just a 10 minute yoga routine or a short walk in the park do get yourself moving.

4: Listen to happy music 🎶

Swap your winter ballads for something more peppy and fun. The music you listen to has an impact on your mood.

5: Schedule something to look forward to in your calendar 📅

Meet your friends and family, check out the exhibition you wanted to go to or the latest movie that’s out in the theatre.

6: Be kind to yourself 💜

When feeling blue and down it can be hard to find motivation to do any of the above things. It is important to not go hard on yourself, listen to your body and mind, and take things at your pace.

Birkbeck attracts a diverse pool of talented international students from across the globe who aspire to secure employment in a competitive job market while they study.

International students often face the additional challenge of not having a well-established network or an in-depth knowledge of the local UK job market, which can make it harder to secure job offers. Moreover, there can be cultural and language barriers, as well as variations in resume/CV requirements and formats, and application cycles and processes.

This webinar is presented by La Young Jackson from the International Students Team at Birkbeck and Anna Gordon a Career Coach and Consultant with Careers and Enterprise.

Current students can log on My Birkbeck (events) to book their place. https://cis.bbk.ac.uk/apex/a02u/f?p=104:101
