Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We have had a productive year and look forward to having more success and contact with our community next year.
The Holidays can be a time for family and celebrations, but also stressful so in light of that a few holiday tips for you to use share and build on based on the 5 ways to Wellbeing:
1 Connect, Whakawhanaunga:
Connect with family, friends, or maybe somebody you have lost touch with. Connect with nature and enjoy our lovely beaches for sun fun and forests for quiet shade. Try searching events in your local community, maybe spend some time getting a summer garden ready, your own or join your communities!
2 Give, Tukua
Give, not just financially but try your time, love, talents. Complement and talk to strangers, babysit or volunteer, make gifts, or give time to yourself for some self care and kindness.
3 Take Notice, Me aro tonu
Take notice of the gifts in your life, from family friends, to our environment. Enjoy minfullness practices of what is in and around your life. Actively make time to slow down to do this.
4 Learning, Me ako tonu
We are always learning, talk with people, tell and share stories with people, use your library, or join a new club!
5 Be Active, Me kori tonu
Summer is an excellent time for this. Free pools and the sea are resources, also while people are more free go for group walks, enjoy our parks, Take public transport to somewhere you have never been and explore….Or a great chance for a summer spring clean/garden do up!
Wishing you a safe and enjoyable holiday season!
