Help your students take control of their university experience, one step at a time. In Be Well, Learn Well, Gareth Hughes explores the different dimensions of student wellbeing (physical, psychological, social and academic) and helps students understand the connection between their wellbeing and academic performance. Be Well, Learn Well begins by considering the impact of factors such as diet, exercise, hydration, sleep and sunlight on learning, before examining how 'deep' learning can improve wellbeing. Subsequent chapters help students create meaningful connections with their studies, build motivation and approach exams, presentations and group projects with confidence. The final chapter challenges unhelpful narratives around career trajectories and helps students to take small, manageable steps towards their goals.

This inspirational guide by the lead author of the UK's University Mental Health Charter will empower students of all disciplines to study more effectively, feel calmer and take control of their time at university.

Be Well, Learn Well is an excellent toolkit for navigating university, packed with useful and practical ideas to help students look after their mental wellbeing and learn effectively. A must-read for any student!’ – Elena Riva, University of Warwick, UK
Be Well, Learn Well delivers its message with warmth and humour. This book will empower students to take control of their studies and their mental health, and in so doing get the most out of their time at university.’ – Victoria Bradley, Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK
‘A vital resource for university students, which offers practical, accessible approaches and information to support their wellbeing in a constructive and manageable way. This book will be a core component of the tools I use to support my students on a day-to-day basis.’ – Natacha Harding, University of Winchester, UK
‘This book is informative, engaging and research-informed, and the friendly tone makes it very accessible to students. It includes a wide range of practical study and wellbeing strategies, making it very useful for all students and also relevant to the staff who support them.’ – Anthony Payne, Director of Student Services, University of Bath, UK
As they go through education, many young people imbibe the idea that their mental health is completely unrelated to, or even at odds with, their academic learning. What Gareth Hughes has done with this book is not only to thoroughly debunk this myth using solid evidence, but also show practical ways students can avoid burnout, improve both their learning and health outcomes. I really wish I'd had a copy of this before I went to uni. – Natasha Devon MBE, Author of Yes You Can: Ace Your Exams without Losing Your Mind
