All Right? Campaign update: December 2017

Tuesday, December 05, 2017   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, resilience, mental wellbeing, wellbeing

Kia ora. Are you ready for an outbreak of kindness?

We’ve got a very ambitious goal for December – we want everyone in Canterbury to give and receive at least one compliment.

Compliments are free, easy to give, and can make a big difference to someone’s day. We reckon they're worth spreading!

The All Right? team.

A kind word can mean the world

We have created 24 compliments to make it even easier to spread some kindness - that can be shared as GIFs or passed on as cards.

GIF a little

Introducing the GIFs that keep on giving! Our compliment advent calendar makes it easy to share the love this Christmas.

Open a GIF a day or share 'em all right away!

View the All Right? compliment advent calendar.

Up for a mission?

We've created compliment cards for those who like to give their compliments 'old school'. Each card has its own mini mission on the back - like 'sneak me into someone’s pocket' or 'hide me under a keyboard'. 

The best thing? If you live in Canterbury you can order a pack for free!

Order your pack of compliment cards.

Why kindness

Doing something kind - like giving a compliment - has been shown to produce serotonin and oxytocin, two ‘feel good’ chemicals that help you feel happier, calmer, and more energetic.

Fill your wellbeing kete...

Here's a few tips and tricks to give your wellbeing a summery boost...

Take a breather

There’s no escaping it – it's December and there’s only 24 sleeps til Christmas! As well as lots of joy, this time of year can bring lots of stresses, as our 'to do' lists grow along with financial and family pressures.

Amidst all the cheer and chaos, it’s a good idea to try and Take a Breather. Whether it's a short walk, a catch up with friends or reading a book, there’s lots of great ways to recharge.

Got a parenting question?

Our Parenting Guides are packed with easy tips on everything from helping kids be calm, to having fun and feeling good. There's even one on looking after you!

Our website also has a list of nearly 100 free Canterbury parenting courses, for every age and stage.

Find out more about All Right?'s parenting toolbox.

Boosting wellbeing at work

Many of us spend a lot of time at work, so how our workplace supports and enhances our wellbeing is really important!

Our friends at the Mental Health Foundation have just released the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing at Work Toolkit'.

The toolkit makes it easy for workplaces to strengthen their culture and support their people to build the Five Ways to Wellbeing into their daily lives.

Find out more about the Five Ways to Wellbeing.

Christmas for the City

Christmas for the City is a gift to families and the people of Ōtautahi from the churches of Christchurch. There'll be art, music, drama and fun activities (like bouncy castles!).

Date and Time: Saturday 16th December 2017, from 4 to 9pm.
Location: Ara Institute.

Find out more about Christmas for the City.

Street Prints Ōtautahi

YMCA Christchurch and PAINT (Pushing Art in New Zealand Trust) are teaming up to deliver a street art festival which will celebrate all forms of street art including street dance, theatre and music.
