Thanks so much to those who came along to the Festive Fayre at the end of last term. It really was a fantastic evening, we enjoyed sharing some mulled wine with other researchers and talking about all our exciting upcoming plans.
Our theme for the evening was researcher wellbeing, a subject about which the scholars are passionate. Hive scholar Charlotte Morris has conducted research about this subject at Brighton University, and she suggested we do a ‘Wellbeing Tree’ for the Festive Fayre. We asked researchers to write down one tip for staying healthy, happy and sane, and hang it on the Christmas tree. Lots of researchers took part and it provided a great focal point in the centre of Falmer Bar, as the pictures show. We kept all of your tips and will be sharing them in the run up to Wellbeing Week on the 25th Feb – 2nd March.
Wellbeing Week, run by the Doctoral School, TLDU and the Hive, will be packed full of workshops, discussion and Q&A, health and fitness taster sessions, a ramble in Stanmer Park and much more. The focus is on thinking about research holistically, and not just as a set of skills. How do we become researchers, and stay happy and healthy whist doing so? We’re really looking forward to the week’s events; so put the dates in your diary and check the Doctoral School pages for more information coming very soon.
