Join us for an interactive and experiential one-off workshop aimed at understanding why we procrastinate.
You’ll learn ways to think differently, strategies that may help you stay on track, and how to set achievable goals to reduce pressure when studying.
In a safe and honest space, you’ll discover what exactly creates our procrastination habits and how to approach them both with our mind and with concrete actions.
Have you ever felt like you just need a moment to breathe but finding the calm and peace to do so seems so unreachable? Then this workshop might be what you're looking for.
You'll gain an understanding into what mindfulness means, it's benefits and explore the common myths and questions around mindfulness you might have.
Taught in a safe space with fellow students, you'll be guided into different ways to integrate mindfulness into your daily life through exercises, activities and reflections.
Your Middlesex journey will require you to put yourself in uncomfortable and unfamiliar places, including those times you will be asked to perform or present in front of tutors and peers. What do you fear the most? What does ‘failure’ mean to you? What messages might we have received that could make us more or less afraid of the idea of ‘failing’? How do we respond to our critical voice and our self-limiting beliefs so that we develop the knowledge that when we fall down, we get up again and get stronger?
Your experience of life is constantly one of being in groups: from your time at school, your friendship, your University course and more. What worries or concerns might you have about working in a group, either at Middlesex or beyond? What can go wrong and how can group work be ‘sabotaged’ by its members? How can you develop the mind-set and skills to ensure you have the best possible experience of working in a group?
Join us for an interactive one-off workshop; in a safe and honest space with fellow students going through similar or same issues as you.
If you're struggling with unhelpful patterns, and your moods and anxiety taking over, then this is the workshop for you.
Let's explore and learn together how to change the way you feel by changing the way you think.
This is a safe space created for all MDX students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Non-binary, Queer, Pan, or Asexual and who are interested in connecting with other students.
Facilitated by a member of the CMH team, who identifies as a Queer woman herself, you can explore how to look after your mental health and wellbeing together as you navigate the adventures and challenges of student life.
The hope is that you and your peers will shape the programme by identifying themes and activities for future group meetings.
Feeling isolated? Finding it hard to find your voice? Want to feel more connected to others and learn about yourself at the same time?
Then this group might be for you as here, students are encouraged to share and listen to each other, and to challenge each other’s negative inner monologue.
The group encourages the importance of being open, authentic, and recognising that it isn’t our wounds that put other’s off, but the armour we use to hide them.
This is a closed group that runs for 12 weeks.
Coming to study in a different country can feel both exciting and scary. Even though the idea of coming to London is exhilarating, adjusting to life in a new culture can feel daunting. For many there will be the task of working and writing in a second language, the possibility of homesickness and the challenge of making new friends and coping with loneliness.
So come to our workshop where we can get to grips with all of this – and more! Let’s think together about what might lie ahead and what strategies and resources you can develop to help you make the very best of your time at Middlesex.
