Beautiful campuses: Spring #2023

It's Spring and it is beautiful!

The walk around campus is filled with green shoots, unfurling leaves, and beautiful blossom trees. The sky is blue and the birds are singing.

I am truly grateful that I am able to enjoy my campus surroundings at this time of year. It's really busy, and my work feels somewhat overwhelming as the assessment season approaches, but a walk in nature never ceases to lift me and bring me joy.

If you are feeling the pressure within academic life at the moment, take a mindful moment to take a step back and walk around your campus and pause. Let your mind drift and come back to your work refreshed.

When things are moving too fast, although perhaps counterintuitive, slowing down might be exactly what we need.
