This term we see the launch of Lancaster University’s Healthy Living campaign. It provides a range of activities for staff and students to make healthy lifestyle choices, focusing on a healthier mind, body, pocket and planet.

Whether it’s trying a new exercise, making nutritious food and drink choices, or simply taking some time to sit back and socialise, there’s plenty going on this term to help you feel healthy in body and mind.
