All Right? Campaign update: June 2018

Wednesday, June 06, 2018   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, mental wellbeing, resilience

Kia ora! See ya later May... you've been great!

May's been all about downtime for the All Right? team, and Downtime Dice in particular. We've been so busy extolling the benefits of downtime that we can't wait to get some for ourselves this long weekend!

For some downtime inspiration please read on to check out some examples of how other Cantabrians are getting their downtime fix.

And while it's haere rā to May, it's kia ora to June (and winter). To help you take extra special care of yourself we've listed some winter survival tips below.

The All Right? team

Downtime is good time!

On a roll

We’ve had an amazing response to our Downtime Dice.

Nearly 20,000 Dice rolled out our door during May!

Downtime Dice can be purchased online - so do not despair if you didn’t get a free Dice during May.

How we roll

We’ve just loved seeing how Cantabrians are spending their downtime...

Check out the Downtime Dice Wall for more examples of how Cantabrians are spending their downtime.

Did you like your Dice?

We'd love to know what you think of our Downtime Dice.

We've created super short survey for people who've used a Downtime Dice to have their say - we're so keen to find out.

And as an added sweetener, everyone who completes the 3 minute survey will go into the draw to win $150 of beauty bar goodness from Ethique.

Winter Sur-Thrival Tips

Winter's longer nights and shorter, colder days may seem a challenge but they also bring opportunities! Here are some tricks for thriving in Winter:

  • With some warm clothes, a wintry stroll becomes an adventure. Bring it on!
  • Friends make it warmer – head indoors together for a cuppa
  • Board games!
  • Creativity – draw, craft, tinker, write that memoir!
  • Listen (and dance) to music – organise your own ‘No Lights, No Lycra’ night?
    Find out about No Lights No Lycra in Christchurch.
  • Share some kindness (random, planned or otherwise – warm fuzzies go both ways)
  • Libraries are warm and cosy in Winter.
    Why not find out more about Matariki?
  • Celebrate with whānau and friends, share some kai – cooking warms you twice!Winters longer nights and shorter, colder days can be a challenge.

Mental Health Inquiry

The Government is currently undertaking an inquiry aimed at improving mental health and addiction services. The Inquiry wants to hear from people across Aotearoa/New Zealand, and submissions close June 5th. Having your say is easy, and you can do it online.

The team at All Right? have been giving the Inquiry’s five questions a bit of thought and we’ve come up with our own ideas for improving mental health and wellbeing in New Zealand.

Read our comments on the Mental Health Inquiry.
