A warm welcome to the Wellbeing Oasis!
We all need to take breaks to recharge. We recognise that it is good to take screen-free respites, such as going for a walk or exercising, but that also sometimes it is not easy to step away from your device.
The good news is that tech-based breaks can give you some of the same benefits as the offscreen variety, especially if you’re able to include some combination of physical movement, social interaction, and brain stimulation.
Self-led wellbeing activities
Each wellbeing section on the conference programme offers a choice of following self-directed resources yourself or joining a 10 minute Active Wellbeing session which you will be asked to register for.
