Be green, be kind, be giving

Being kind is not only good for our wellbeing — it can also be good for the planet.

As we approach Christmas, remember to be kind to yourself, the community and the world.

Be green, be kind, be giving

As Christmas approaches, there are simple ways to give back and increase your wellbeing — by decluttering your life, and being kind to yourself and others.


Decluttering for wellbeing

From 30 November to 4 December, UQ Wellness is partnering with UQ Sustainability and Student Services for the Be Green, Be Kind, Be Giving campaign. 

We're encouraging you to clean out your closets and donate good quality items. We'll have Lifeline and St Vincent De Paul charity bins located around our St Lucia, Gatton and Herston campuses.

Count down to Christmas

‘Tis the season, but coming up to the end of the year many of us will be feeling a little worn out. And the holiday period may bring its own additional stressors.

Whether you're taking a break or working through, don’t forget to take pockets of time throughout your day to look after your wellbeing.
