As the days get warmer and brighter it’s hard not to get excited for summer, especially as us students often get a generous break! However, for many, a few hurdles still stand in the way – deadlines and exams. As study season starts gaining speed we want to offer a supportive hand and give you some advice on the best ways to stay productive and happy while the pressure is on.

We will be joined by Uz Afzal, mindfulness practitioner. Uz teaches mindfulness in a range of settings: schools, universities, companies and charities. She has led drop-in mindfulness sessions at the Women of the World Festival and popular walking meditations at the V&A Museum in London. Uz is passionate about the potential for mindfulness to support focus and to help people to manage stresses and emotions and to enjoy life to the full.

The session will be an introduction to mindfulness (what it is, how to practise and the benefits). We will carry out a few mindfulness practices and finish with suggestions for regular mindfulness practice and using the tools to manage the additional stresses that the exam period places on students.

As always, we will then finish the evening with a networking session, giving you the chance to meet other students and talk one-to-one with Uz and our team. Plus, as everyone knows, study snacks are the most important part of revision, so refreshments will be provided. Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance.

Or join our Facebook group! 

The group is used to advertise events, share messages and is an online social community for potential, current and past students to interact with each other even if they are unable to attend events. It's somewhere members can share their stories, advice and questions. Organisations such as London Blind and VICTA are also involved, and University Student Welfare pages have joined to pass on notices to their students and young people. We really appreciate everyone getting involved and helping us to grow this online community! Please come over and join our group to stay up to date, and pass on the details to anyone who you think might be interested.

We look forward to meeting you (virtually, or in person) soon!

Best wishes

The London Vision Team
