All Right? Campaign update: October 2018

Wednesday, October 03, 2018   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, resilience, mental wellbeing, event, awareness, research, workplace

Kia ora. How's daylight saving working out for you? While the early mornings can take some adjustment, the longer days provide lots of opportunities to throw off the winter shackles and get out amongst it!

What better way to make the most of the extra daylight than getting outside and enjoying what Ōtautahi has to offer.

Being in nature helps reduce blood pressure, heart rate, and the production of stress hormones.
It's even been shown to reduce depression. Put simply, it's great for you!

Arohanui,
The All Right? team

Let nature in!

Ōtautahi is surrounded by natural beauty, and Mental Health Awareness Week (8th to 14th October) gives us a great excuse to get out and enjoy it!

Letting nature in doesn’t need to be a big mission – even spending some time in the backyard or going for a stroll around the block can help us find balance, build resilience and boost our wellbeing.

Learn more about Mental Health Awareness Week.

Is nature right for you?

Watch this video to find out how getting out in nature can “reduce cynicism, meaninglessness, anal retentiveness and murderous rage.”

All Right? Amble(s)

All Right? Amble is always the highlight of The Breeze Walking Festival - but we might be biased!

Part treasure hunt, part orienteering - this is a fun family walk with a difference. The All Right? Amble comprises five wellbeing stations – each based on one of five ways to wellbeing. What other 2km stroll gives you the opportunity to connect, take notice, give, learn and get active!?

This year there are two All Right? Ambles:

  • Sunday 7th October (10.30am to 2.30pm): Christchurch Botanical Gardens; and
  • Sunday 14th October (10am to 1.30pm): Trousselot Park in Kaiapoi.

Find out more about the All Right? Ambles.

Rainbow research

We’re keen to understand how the LGBT+ community is faring in post disaster Christchurch, so we’re undertaking some research to help us consider how we could contribute to the wellbeing of the community.

To do this, we’re inviting members of Christchurch's LGBT+ community to participate in anonymous focus groups.

Go online if you’re interested in taking part in this All Right? research - or you want to share with the LGBT+ people in your lives.

Workplace focus - Pepa

From increased productivity to happier staff, there’s heaps of reasons for workplaces to invest in wellbeing.

Pepa Stationery owner Ami Muir says her approach to workplace wellbeing is centred around kindness.

“Your people are your business… It’s really important that they are happy because it is a place I want other people to feel happy in as well.”

Find out more about workplace wellbeing at Pepa Stationery.


Until next time, e noho rā
