Let's get moving

Posted on 6 November 2022

Physical activity is not just good for your body but good for your mind.

With darker nights and colder weather, you might feel that your wellbeing needs a bit of a boost. 

Physical activity doesn’t have to be a big deal - just moving more throughout the day on a regular basis can also be effective in lifting your mood, supporting your sleep, and helping you relax.

Give it a go

We offer some great opportunities at York:

  • College sport: a fun and sociable environment where everyone is welcome to take part, regardless of ability or experience
  • Social sport: play for fun - no commitment, no pressure, no experience needed

And don't forget that the GSA offers free sport opportunities for postgraduates!

Get out and about
