Wellbeing Support Resources

We have a dedicated Health & Wellbeing Zone in the library with comfy chairs to relax, read wellbeing books, a dedicated PC for listening relaxation/meditation audio cd’s and viewing health and wellbeing audio visual material and related websites.

The wellbeing collection has a range of self-help and mood-boosting-books for you to borrow. Books includes:

  • Mindfulness
  • Stress and Anxiety Management
  • Emotional Resilience
  • Meditation
  • Yoga, Pilates & Tai Chi
  • Healthy Eating

We also have a range of resources to help staff to relax and stay healthy, including on-going jigsaw puzzles, colouring books and colouring pencils to help staff to relax and de-stress, so feel free to pop in and do a bit of jigsaw and colouring. This is part of our Health & Well-Being at work initiative.
