What is Feel Good?

The Feel Good programme is run by UWE and The Students' Union to help you feel good whilst at university!

The Feel Good programme is based on four healthy behaviours for your wellbeing: relax, eat well, get active, and try something new.

At UWE Bristol, we strongly believe in encouraging these behaviours for all students and empowering them to make healthy choices! This is part of our wider commitment to mental health and wellbeing, with our Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

The highlights of the Feel Good calendar are:

-     Feel Good Fortnight: a healthy way to kick off University (October)

-     Feel Good February: a month of free health and wellbeing activities (February)

-    Feel Good for Exams: pop-up stress-busting activities during exams (May)

This year, we are delighted to announce the Feel Good Fortnight programme, running for two weeks in September, for a healthy way to start university.

Need any more encouragement? During Feel Good Fortnight, there are over loads prizes and freebies to win at the main events and on social media! Come along to the events and use the hashtag #UWEFeelGood to be in with a chance of winning!
