#FindYourSpace

Looking after your wellbeing is more important than ever and finding your own space can be a valuable part of that process.

You may prefer walks outside, in parks or on the riverside. Or you may prefer a quiet space in a library or your bedroom to read and reflect. What’s your space?

Placeholder

Finding Your Space can also be about being comfortable with who you are, what you want to be, and the things you like. That’s why as part of LJMU’s Wellbeing Week you will find resources to help you explore your health, new activities, finances and even your future career.

All these things can contribute to your wellbeing, reducing worries and finding happiness. During Wellbeing Week, we encourage everyone to share what is important about your own space – join us, by using #FindYourSpace and #LjmuWellbeing on social media.
