5 Ways to Blog!





About the blog:

We want to keep the community spirit going in Langwith, and what better way than to share our thoughts and stories with each other. We are hoping to collect a selection of blog posts from Langwith students that we will share on our website and on the social media pages.


Getting involved:

We invite you to write a blog post that concentrates on one or some of the 5 ways to wellbeing. What are you doing that ties in with these? Perhaps you have been learning a new skill during this time, or maybe you have helped someone out. Whatever it is, we would like to hear your stories. Short and sweet is better. Anything from 50 words is great, but please try not to exceed 400 words!


5 Ways to Wellbeing:


Just as a reminder, the 5 ways to wellbeing are:

Connect

Be Active

Take notice

Learn

Give


How to submit

When you have written your blog post, please email it to deputypresident@langwithcollege.com with the title ‘Langwith Blog Post Submission’. It would be even better if you could attach a picture of you, or something related to your post. This helps to make it more personal. Blog posts will be posted on the LCSA website, and may also be shared on social media. By submitting your blog post and photo, you agree to them being shared in this way. If you have any questions about this, please email deputypresident@langwithcollege.com


Example blog post:


Here is an example of the kind of post we are looking for, but be creative - we want to see your personality shine through!


It can feel quite frustrating not being able to go about your normal everyday life. Part of me misses my busy schedule. Going to work and having a laugh with the college team, having back-to-back meetings with students, and knocking over my water-filled cup about 5 times a day! I miss playing squash in the evening, or going out for dinner with my best friend. But at the same time, my life has slowed down and there has been something quite special about that. It’s helped me to notice things. I’ll be sitting in my room and suddenly hear the birds singing outside my window. This isn’t usually something I’d pay attention to but actually, they make such a beautiful sound. Yesterday, I noticed a silhouette of my plant that had been projected onto my wall by the sun. It was a nice addition to my cream-coloured wall for the hour that it lasted. On the occasion that I do have a little stroll outside, I take time to admire the flowers that have started to bloom, or the birds that perch on a near-by branch whilst I walk past. I have enjoyed going on a walk not because I need to be somewhere, but to stretch my legs and just appreciate my surroundings. Amongst all of the chaos, panic and uncertainty that we are facing at the moment, taking a few minutes out of my day to just notice the little things has been helping me to stay positive and to look after my wellbeing.
