Anxiety may be something that is new to you or it could be something you have always had to live with.
Dealing with some form of anxiety during university isn’t uncommon and each individual deals with it differently. What works for one may not work for another!
Here are our tips to ease the anxiety or stop it in its tracks…
– Be Mindful
Although mindfulness has become crazily popular in today’s young person culture it isn’t just a fad. Meditation has been around for centuries and has shown to be extremely beneficial to your mental and physical health.
Try one of these mindfulness apps…
– Eat Healthily
When we eat healthily we have more energy, feel more confident, and think more clearly. Eating rubbish makes us feel rubbish so give your body the best fighting chance to banish those anxious thoughts and feelings.
By focusing on your body and breathing, yoga teaches you to focus on the present moment and not dwell on potentially bad/uncomfortable situations.
Look up these yoga YouTubers and give it a try for yourself…
If you give it a try and still decide the yoga life isn’t for you, try taking a few minutes a day to just focus on some calm breathing. It really can make all the difference.
– Fresh Air
getting out for a walk/run in the fresh air can help clear your thoughts. Regular exercise has been proven to help banish mild anxiety more than medication.
– You Are Not Alone
You probably don’t want to be a burden and feel like you are alone.
You really are not!
Speak to friends, family, your university counselor or your GP. Many will be going through similar things to you but also afraid to talk about it.
Let’s break down those mental health barriers.

I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
