Getting through together

Looking after ourselves and each other in a COVID-19 world is more important than ever. Here are some simple things we can all do to give our wellbeing a boost and help our community get through.

In challenging times we can go through a range of emotions, and at our own pace.

Feeling like you're all over the place, a tad on edge or a bit overwhelmed are completely normal reactions to a very abnormal situation. So too is needing to get on with things or taking time out for yourself.

While COVID-19 continues to change our everyday lives, there are simple things we can all do to look after ourselves and others.

  • Be kind to one another - showing you care with a simple text, Facetime, or call can make a big difference.
  • Stick to routines if you can - routines can sound dull but they are great at giving our day structure in uncertain times.
  • Where you can, do more of the things that give your life value and meaning, eg gardening, connecting with nature, or getting lost in a good book.
  • Calm your body and mind and focus on your breathing with Hikitia Te Hā.
  • Take a digital detox - we all need downtime.
  • Get creative with our ways to wellbeing - how many can you do in one day?

And please remember that we will get through this if we work together.
