Happy Mental Health Awareness Week! A week that has been run by the Mental Health Foundation for 30 years, reminding us to evaluate what’s important.

For a lot of people, life has been a rollercoaster lately, with change and stress coming from all angles. We've faced uncertainty, unfamiliarity, and hardships that have left us with mixed emotions. This, of course, affects our ability to perform both at work and at home.

This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week theme is Five Ways, Five Days - a set of proven tools to boost our mental health when we need it.

Take Notice | Me Aro Tonu – Monday

Take Notice refers to the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness can be thought of as open and receptive attention to, and awareness of, what is occurring in the present moment.

Give | Tukua – Tuesday

Give refers to actions based on kindness, altruism, or generosity. Carrying out acts of kindness boosts our happiness, life satisfaction, and overall wellbeing.

Be Active | Me Kori Tonu – Wednesday

Widely recognised as being crucial for physical health and fitness, being active is also a powerful mood booster. Being active can not only make us feel good, it also enhances our thinking and learning abilities.

Connect | Me Whakawhanaunga – Thursday

Connection is the ngākau/heart of our wellbeing. It weaves us together, making us feel seen, heard, and understood. When we nurture meaningful connections with others, we fuel our own happiness.

Keep Learning | Me Ako Tonu – Friday

Keep Learning refers to ‘exercising our mind’ – almost like taking our brain to the gym. Any activity that challenges our thinking and expands our consciousness improves our ability to think.
