All Right? Campaign update: May 2019

Wednesday, May 01, 2019   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: wellbeing, resilience, recovery, newsletter, campaign

Kia ora. After a bitterly cold start to the week, it's great to see the sun shining again!

Congrats also to our Canterbury parents and caregivers - another lot of school holidays done and dusted!

We hope you've been able to take some time out for yourself over the last few weeks to do some of the things you enjoy.

Many of us are still grappling with the events of 15 March, while others have been able to 'put it behind them' and move on.

Wherever you're at, it's important to remember we’re all in this together. If you know people who are struggling please do whatever you can to show you care - kindness can make a massive difference. Sometimes all it takes is sharing a cuppa and being a good listener.

He waka eke noa: we’re all in this together

There's been such a great response to our current He waka eke noa campaign.

The campaign reminds Cantabrians that in tough times we can go through a range of emotions, and at our own pace. Feeling like needing a hug, having a cry and talking it out are natural, healthy reactions to an upsetting event.

To ‘get through’ it’s important to be aware of how you’re feeling and to give yourself time to do the things that make you feel good, such as sharing a cuppa or taking a breather.

Thanks to the many of you who have ordered He waka eke noa postcard sets - they have been flying out the door!

You can now also order A3 posters and postcard sets in Te Reo online - we'll send them straight to your letterbox.

Awesome Awe

We all have those moments when we feel a real a sense of wonder. Maybe you’ve been struck by feelings of awe when you’ve been out in nature, or you’re looking up at the stars, or you’ve hung on every note at a concert.

Experiencing awe is good for us – it helps make everyday concerns feel less overwhelming, makes us more curious, and lifts our mood.

If you’re spending too much time working, or in front of a screen, then finding ways to build more awe into your day could be just what you need. Heading outdoors everyday could be a great first step!

Awesome Autumn

On the subject of awe, last week we received some awesome entries for our Easter photo competition. It was great seeing all those beautiful autumn colours our region has on full display.

Congratulations to Andrea Grant who won a $50 Rollickin Gelato voucher for a great photo of Museum Reserve in Dunedin.

Get your very own Digital Detox Box

Short breaks from technology give our brains a break from digital processing, allowing us to slow down, focus and recharge.

For most of us, unplugging completely is unrealistic. Sometimes there are simply calls to take, texts to answer and moments we want to capture.

Treating yourself to a Digital Detox is a chance to take a break, do something fun and find the balance that feels just right.

All Right? has created Digital Detox Box templates to make it easy.

You can also order free mini Digital Detox boxes from the All Right? website.


Until next time, e noho rā
