Mental Health Awareness Week, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, will be taking place Monday 13th – Sunday 19th May and this year’s theme is Body Image. It is a topic that has recently been featuring heavily in discussions and debates on social media and in the news, so this feels like a timely opportunity to talk about my personal experiences with the issue of body image and how it can be explored using resources in the library.
Today is the International day of Human Space Flight, celebrating the anniversary of the very first space flight made by a human being. This day of celebration was created by the United Nations in 2011, to acknowledge the start of the space era for humankind. However, it has been celebrated by the Russian people as a national day since 1962, where it was called Cosmonautics day.
We all know that during this busy time, Augustine House is open 24/7 but that doesn’t mean you should work 24/7.
To get the best from yourself and to ensure you stay motivated and don’t burn out, you need to give yourself regular breaks!
But how do you get the most from them?
Here’s our top tips for staying ahead of the game and ensuring you make the most of this valuable “me” time:-
Today is World Theatre day, a celebration of art within the theatre, exploring the value and importance of this artistic expression. Initiated by the International Theatre Institute in 1961, it has been celebrated ever since through the organisation, but also a wide variety of outside people and establishments including actors, directors, theatres, universities and schools.
The International Day of Happiness was created in 2013 as a way of reminding people of the importance of looking after ourselves and being happy.
Happiness is a great contributor to our overall well-being and can give us an overall feeling of contentment with life. It brings us joy, makes us smile and enables us to enjoy the things that are going on around us.
We can also bring happiness to others by looking out for, caring for and helping them in times of need; but don’t think this is the only time happiness counts, if you can bring happiness to someone during any time in their life, then it will have a benefit, to them and to you.
To coincide with 24/7 opening at Augustine House library, as part of the exam & assessment period, we are bringing stressless back for another year. This session will run from the 18th March 2019 through to the 18th May 2019.
