Message from All Right: Give something great

Thursday, December 01, 2016   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, earthquake recovery, resilience, mental wellbeing, emergencies

You doing all right? It's been nearly two weeks since we were all jolted awake in the early hours of the morning. While the physical impacts of the quakes are easy to see, the impact on people’s wellbeing can be far less obvious – some are coping well, others less so.

As we head into the Christmas silly season All Right? is encouraging people to be even kinder than usual. Being a bit kinder can make a big difference for both the person being kind and the recipient. To help you on your kindness mission we've created a online Gift Generator. Think of it as our Christmas gift to you!

We're always keen to hear your stories, thoughts and ideas. Email All Right? to get in touch (hello[at]allright.org.nz).

Thanks for your wise words

Who better to give advice to those most affected by the quakes than the people of Canterbury? Last week we asked Cantabrians what advice they would give people in Kaikoura, Hurunui and beyond. As you'd expect, there were some amazing pearls of wisdom…

Check out the All Right? Facebook page to see all of your advice.

We also grabbed a video camera so we could share some more wise words.

Getting through the earthquake

Going through a disaster takes a toll on all of us and coping is not always easy. Good mental health helps us carry on and deal with all that life throws at us. Here are some practical tips to help you look after yourself and those around you…

  • Pace yourself and focus on the things that are most important to you. 
  • Take time to think about your energy levels. 
  • Try to focus on the things that you can control at the moment. 
  • Routines can help us deal with uncertainty and constant change, so try to maintain your daily or weekly routine (if you can). 
  • It’s ok to talk about what has happened and how you are coping. 

There is free help available if you or someone you know is not feeling all right. Just call the Earthquake Support Line (0800 777 846). 

Let's share some love!

We reckon this is the perfect time to start encouraging a bit more kindness in Otautahi. December can be a stressful time, and the November quakes haven't helped!

By making an extra effort to be kind you’ll:
