“Live well to Learn well” at RMIT Vietnam

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - 15:02

More than 570 RMIT Vietnam students and staff attended the 2016 Wellbeing Day and learned how to be healthy through a proper diet, regular exercise, mindfulness, and generosity. 

RMIT Vietnam Wellbeing and Counselling Service Senior Manager Jacqueline Langton believes that by taking care of our bodies, mind, and spirit, we are in a more positive position to study and work.

“We all live busy lives, both staff and students, and it can be hard to find a good balance between working and looking after ourselves,” she said.

“We have invited health professionals, healthy eating experts, NGO's that do great supportive work in the community, and some of the service providers and clubs at RMIT Vietnam that provide services that can positively influence our wellbeing.

“Students and staff enjoyed and engaged in some hands-on activities including guest speaker workshops, food sampling, sports performances, a trivia quiz, and fitness demonstrations.”
