All Right? Campaign update: December 2019

Wednesday, December 4, 2019   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, resilience, campaign, mental wellbeing, resources, event

Kia ora. Welcome to December Ōtautahi!

It's an incredibly busy time of year, and it's important to make sure you find time to take a breather and enjoy some downtime.

We've got three things to help with that - Chitter Chatter, our new Maramataka calendar and Moodshift - read on!

The All Right? team

Have a natter with Chitter Chatter

Have you got your Chitter Chatter yet? It's a fun new game that helps kids ​(and adults!) have conversations about emotions and feelings and think about how we handle them.

The packs can be picked up for free at Christchurch libraries for a limited time.
You can also order from anywhere in New Zealand for a small cost.

We hope you find it helpful and fun. But before you order yours...
Please fill out this quick survey for people who haven't yet played Chitter Chatter with their whānau - to help us understand the difference it is making! It will take about 5 minutes.

In a few weeks we'll send respondents a second survey to see what (if anything!) has changed when it comes to talking about emotions with your family.

Ultimately, the feedback we get will help us make Chitter Chatter even better! And yes, there's a prize up for grabs - a $100 Whitcoulls voucher (Christmas sorted!)

Do the Chitter Chatter survey.

Maramataka - the turning of the moon

Our Maramataka calendars highlight the connection between the moon and our wellbeing.

For thousands of years, people have looked to the environment to track time, define space and determine their connection to the world and their surroundings.

Stars have been used to signal the year ahead, the moon to track the month, the sun to note the days and the weather to note the seasons.

Coming from the traditionally holistic understanding of wellbeing in Māori culture, the Maramataka calendar utilises the traditional practice of observing the moon phases to help us reflect, plan and work with how we’re feeling. It highlights the strong connection between the environment and our wellbeing.

Visit the All Right? website to order a printed Maramataka calendar or to download and make your own.

Moodshift is back!

Moodshift is a series of free pop-up wellbeing events is happening in the city every lunchtime this week (2nd to 6th December).

Moodshift is based on the Five Ways to Wellbeing, and aims to support positive wellbeing amongst inner-city workers – encouraging them to take a break, try something new, and participate in something fun.

We're not allowed to tell you what each day's event will be, but we can say with confidence that they will be unpredictable, contagious and fun. And good for you!

The lunchtime activities kick off on Monday 2nd December, and will run between 12 and 2pm at Cashel Mall.

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