What volunteering as a Wellbeing Champion means to Sarah …
I’m Sarah and I started volunteering as a Wellbeing Champion in September this year. I was interested in becoming part of the team as I believe it’s so important for everyone to make the most of their time at university, and part of this involves maintaining good physical and mental health.
Being a Wellbeing Champion has been a great experience so far as it’s allowed me to meet many more students, and find out what people find easy and difficult about university life. The Hotspots held by Champions are really valuable as they get people talking about issues they may be facing, and that’s always the first step to feeling better! It’s been great to promote the Health and Wellbeing Team at Cardiff University as I know how much they can offer students with any problems they are having.
University can be a stressful time for all students. I often like to de-stress by listening to music or playing piano, but the list of ways to relieve negative feelings is endless. Communication allows students to share advice and tips for feeling better and that’s why Wellbeing Champions are always happy to have a chat!
We hope you enjoyed reading this blog and would look forward to meeting more of our volunteers in person!
