When you’re busy with deadlines and essays, it’s hard to remember to take time to look after yourself. Staying active is not only important for your physical health, but essential to maintaining a healthy mind as well. If you’re struggling, a one day activity like this is a great way to get back in the game, and complete some fitness. It will also help reduce your stress levels as we get closer to the exam period (eek!)
