This project had to be linked to an interest we had so I used yoga as my starting point. This led me on to wanting to create a wellness app and then more specifically to address the alarmingly high levels of anxiety and stress in university students. ‘ME’ is an app designed specifically to keep your life at university as stress-free as possible by promoting wellness, mindfulness and organisation.
In addition, I created a leaflet which would be sent out to students once they had signed up to UCAS and which would also be handed out to students at Freshers’ Fairs. The ME app would also have a stand at University Freshers’ Fairs to promote and encourage the use of the app.
The aim was to get students to embrace a healthy practice in their day-to-day life from the very start of their university experience.
