Blog - What messes with your head?

With daily posts from the student perspective, connect with the blog, What messes with your head whilst eating breakfast, on the bus or while taking a break from study. The blogging team are studying in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses across all 3 Faculties. Lots of things can 'mess with your head' and knowing you're not alone can help you ask for support.

  • Manikya

    Manikya

    I'm Manikya, a social media editor for the Student Health and Wellbeing Team! 

    I'm in my second year of Environmental Engineering and Finance, and I love my degree. I'm from India, and I only moved to Adelaide earlier this year - i've been loving my time here! 

    A wellbeing tip from me - as strange as it may sound coming from a social media editor - is that sometimes you just need to disconnect. I highly recommend regularly taking a break from all the screens and stimulating your brain with another activity like going for a quick stroll, catching up with a friend face to face or even doing some arts and crafts!

  • Anushka

    I’m Anushka, one of the bloggers for What Messes With Your Head.

    I’m from India and have been in Adelaide for about 5 years. I’m currently having a wonderful time in my first year of studying a Bachelor of Oral Health!

    A wellbeing tip from me is to self-assess periodically. I find that time has been zooming past and it’s so easy to get carried away that we forget to check-in with ourselves. So, when you notice your mind running frantically, I recommend taking a moment to notice how you feel and make sure you’re meeting your needs!

    I'm Taylor and I am one of the bloggers for What Messes With Your Head!

    I'm in my final year of studying English, Philosophy, and Media.

    My wellbeing tip is to spend time with your pets to cheer you up - a cuddle from my cat always makes me feel better! If you don't or can't have pets, you could walk a friend's dog!

  • Ember

    I’m Ember, one of the bloggers for What Messes With Your Head.

    I’m currently an HDR student in the School of Psychology. I’m from Manila in the Philippines but have been living in Adelaide for the past 13 years.

    A wellbeing tip that never fails for me is to breathe. It’s such a simple, yet powerful thing to mindfully do. It’s so simple we aren’t even aware we are doing it, or need to do it. Breathing is the first step to being able to take a moment for yourself to feel the feelings you need to feel, before being able to do anything else for yourself and for others.

  • Sophia

    Hello! My name is Sophia and I am a social media content creator for the Student Health and Wellbeing Team.

    I am a second year Veterinary Bioscience student and I attend my classes at Roseworthy Campus. I just moved to Adelaide earlier this year from Singapore. I am half Singaporean and half Korean.

    One wellbeing tip I have is to try not to compare yourself against others. Although it can be discouraging to see others excelling in a particular task while you can’t seem to grasp it as well, try to remember that everybody has their own strengths and weakness, and that it is perfectly okay to ask for help. There is no shame in taking the time to learn things at your own pace!

  • John

    Hey! I’m John, and I’m one of the co-hosts on the What Messes with Your Head podcast.

    I’m all about making music, enabling creativity and living healthy work lives! I’m also a music producer for a couple Adelaide video game studios and currently studying Sonic Arts at Adelaide Uni.

    One wellbeing tip I have learned over the years: it is well worth practicing the skill of setting time boundaries around your work life. It’s not about how much you can achieve in a short time, it’s about having a long and healthy career.

  • Asirah

    My name is Asirah Abdul Kadir from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and I’m a blogger for What Messes with Your Head.

    I’m currently in the third year of my Bachelor of Laws degree so I’ve been in Adelaide for 3 years now!

    A wellbeing tip that always works for me is to spend some time in the sun whether that be going on walks, reading at the beach or simply just sitting outside. The difference it makes is immaculate!
