Weekend of Wellbeing
Over the last six weeks, we’ve been bringing you a new weekend workout every Friday as part of our #AtHomeWithHost campaign.
And whilst it’s great to keep active and exercise regularly, it’s also important to take a break too; it’s OK not to exercise all the time – your body needs rest too. So, that’s why this week, we’ve decided not to share a new type of workout with you.
Instead, we want you to take some time out. Reflect on the past few weeks and focus on your overall wellbeing – not just exercise. Spread some love, practice self-care and even try something new.
If you’re stuck and don’t know where to begin, you’re in luck. We’ve pulled together a little Wellbeing Challenge for you.
Wellbeing Alphabet Challenge:
You may remember a few weeks ago, we created the Host Alphabet Workout. This week, we’ve taken the same concept but changed the challenges from exercises to wellbeing activities.
So, all you need to do is build your weekend of wellbeing activities by spelling out your Host building name.
Each letter/number of your building’s name is a wellbeing activity to add to your weekend of wellbeing challenge. If you’re a student living with us at an accommodation such as Hope Street Apartments, you’re in for a weekend full of wellbeing!
Even if you’re not living with us at any of our Host accommodations, you can still use the above alphabet list to plan a workout. Why not spell out your name, your street name or the city/town you live in? Whatever goes – so be as imaginative as you like.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! For every percent we reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by we donate to one of our nominated charities.Show me all news
When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
