Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for July!

“If you do not make time for your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness”

With the major health events the world has faced over the last few years its more important than ever to protect our health and well-being and that of our loved ones. We are faced with constant reminders that it’s flu season and it seems like the flu strains grow worse every year. This might provoke thoughts of getting flu shots, improving diet and doing more exercise but there is more that we can do, starting with strengthening our immune system.

Work-Life balance refers to an effective management or striking a balance between the work which is remunerated and the personal or social responsibilities which an individual is expected to perform.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for April!

This month we are talking about Fatigue.

What is fatigue?

Fatigue can be a result of physical or psychological conditions, and sometimes a mixture of both. Fatigue can have a huge impact on your daily life, as well and your mental and emotional state.
A lot of students at MCI study with us in addition to balancing things like work or family. This could cause fatigue in students if precautions aren’t taken.
Fatigue often gets worse gradually. You might not realise how much it is affecting you until you think about all the things you could do previously.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for March!

This month we are talking about Time Management.


Do you ever have the feeling that there are simply not enough hours in the day?

And why do some people seem to achieve more within their day than others? The answer is – good time management.

Time management is forward planning and organising how to divide your time between different activities. Sometimes this can feel almost impossible, when it seems that everyone wants a piece of your time. Dividing your time between family, work, friends, activities and then fitting in the all-important “me time” can be slightly overwhelming. Firstly, we need to de-clutter and take charge of our time.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for February!

This month we are talking about Creative Outlets!


What are creative outlets?

When it comes to creativity, we all enjoy it in some way, shape or form. Whether this involves doodling in a notepad, cooking a new recipe, dressing to express, or simply taking the time to acknowledge our surroundings without modern day distractions, creativity is a vital part of the human experience and has greatly influenced our evolution since we started drawing whacky figures on cave walls 40,000 years ago.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for December!

This month we are talking about Blue Spaces!

What are blue spaces?

For years scientists have documented the positive effects of spending time in natural spaces such as parks, woodlands, and nature reserves.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for November!

This month we are talking about Brainfood.

Brains are the hardest workers in our body. Think about it - your brain is always “on.” It is taking care of our thoughts, movements, breathing, heartbeat, and senses, even when we are sleeping. They work 24/7, which means they need a constant supply of fuel.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for October!

This month we are talking about Anxiety.

First of all what is anxiety?  

Well we’ve all experienced stress and had anxious feelings at some times in our lives and these are perfectly normal responses to situations when things don’t go the way we hoped for, or something sad happens. Such events are called stressors. In our day to day lives, once the stressor passes we usually pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get on with things as usual. Anxiety is different to feeling these usual worries and stresses that life throws at us. Instead anxiety is when those feeling are ongoing and persistent. When they just won’t go away.

Welcome to your MCI Wellbeing Blog for September!

This month we are talking about setbacks.

Sometimes we all face disappointment. Maybe you were not successful the job that you were applying for. Perhaps you did not receive the marks to get into the study course that you wanted? It may be that you did not win a competition or gain the promotion you hoped for.
Did you spent a great deal of time preparing a proposal for a client and then finally they decided not to sign up with your company?
Although setbacks can be tough, setbacks sometimes can have a positive outcome. I will give you an example of this:
