Go Slow for a Mo’: Stress Regulator Trail
It’s more than a learning and teaching campus. It’s a place that actively supercharges student’s and staff wellbeing!
Designed to help target mental restoration and repair as well as all round nature connection. This trail takes students and staff through a series of exercises to help activate the senses, facilitate mindful attention and engage in areas of nature that have a high level of sensory diversity. By undertaking the trail regularly, participants can expect to see increases in positive mood, emotional regulation, attention restoration and greater resilience to anxiety.
“I personally came away with an increased appreciation of the
incredible power that nature can have on my wellbeing – lowering my stress levels, increasing relaxation. It had a profound effect on me and I would encourage anyone to just try it.”
