This week is Mental Health Awareness Week

Below are some ideas for helping you and those around you. Please add more ideas to the comments.

Wairua – Spiritual wellbeing
This is taking notice and appreciating the beauty around us.
Identify someone or something that has helped you through the last six months and find a way to express appreciation.

Tinana – Physical wellbeing
This is how your body feels and how you care for it
Find a time to go outside and enjoy the sunshine, dance, play a sport, go for a walk or a run.

Hinengaro – Mental and emotional wellbeing
This is your heart, mind, conscience, thoughts and feelings.
Put yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new, or rediscover an old interest.

Whanau – Family and social wellbeing
This is the people we care about, who recharge us and make us feel like we belong.
Share a favourite recipe with your friends or family and create a shared cookbook.

Whenua – Connection to the land and roots
It's soil, plants, animals and people. It’s the earth through which we are connected to our tupuna/ancestors. It is a place of belonging, our comfort that is never too far away.
Start a vegetable or flower garden, plant a tree, or share photos of a place that is important to you
