All Right? Campaign update: June 2017

Thursday, June 01, 2017   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, resilience, mental wellbeing

Winter's officially here - we hope you’re keeping warm and looking after yourself. We can’t help too much with the warm bit, but we've got your back when it comes to supporting you to look after yourself!

For All Right, May was all about Habit Sticks - we gave away over 18,000 of them! If you haven’t got one yet, or you're ready to start another healthy habit, don't worry... you can still order them on our website.

To help your winter survival we’ve come up with some tips for looking after your wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those around you. And what better time to make this happen than Matariki!

Arohanui,
The All Right? team

A happier Canterbury – one habit at a time!

The All Right? team are feeling pretty stoked right now! We’ve been blown away at how popular Habit Sticks have been. We gave away over 18,000 of them in May - making it one of our most popular resources ever.

While that makes us quite stoked - what makes us really, really stoked is how many Cantabrians are using their Habit Sticks to make tiny, healthy changes to their lives like:

  • Laura from Central Christchurch who is doing a drawing each day;
  • Reto from Redcliffs who is meditating for 5 minutes every day; and
  • Tui from Hoon Hay who is complimenting someone every day.

The thousands of you are amazing for giving new, healthy habits a go!  Koia kei!

Order your All Right? habit stick if you haven’t got yours yet - we’ve still got some left!

Tell us how your habit's going and WIN!

If you managed to get your hands on an All Right? Habit Stick; we’d love to know how your new habit’s going.
Take a super quick survey on your new habit and we’d be forever grateful if you let us know how you’ve found it.

As an added incentive… everyone who completes the survey will go into the draw to win the most popular prize we gave away in May – date night at The Tannery. This prize includes movie tickets, dinner for two and even some money for a babysitter.

Looking for a new healthy habit?

The Habit Stick brings all the science on successful habit formation together, helping dramatically boost your chances of success. You’re much more likely to successfully adopt a new habit if you make it small and achievable, write it down, do it daily, and track your progress.

Discover your inner strengths on the All Right? website. Try supercharging your successful habit by combining it one of your character strengths.

Winter survival tips ❄️

June is here and winter with it. Longer nights and shorter, colder days can be a challenge but there are things we can all do to take extra special care of ourselves:

"What makes me happy is bundling up in warm clothes and setting off in search of waves and beautiful places to sit by a fire." :) - Sarah Gallagher (2014 All Right? Winter Wellbeing Photo Competition Winner).

Celebrating Matariki ✨

The Māori New Year has always been celebrated with the rise of the star cluster Matariki. It marks the beginning of the Aotearoa/ Pacific New Year according to the lunar calendar. This will take place on Pipiri 25 June in 2017.

Matariki is a celebration of new life and new beginnings, a time to share kai, to stay warm, to share stories from the past and to celebrate whakapapa and tradition. It is also a time to reflect on the past year and to farewell those who have departed the world of the living and returned to Hawaiki.

There are lots of ways you can celebrate Matariki. Some ideas to get you started include:

Check out the Christchurch City Libraries website for more on Matariki and ways to celebrate it.


All Right?We're always keen to hear your stories, thoughts and ideas. Get in touch with All Right?
