Get a crew together

Suggest a group catch up with close friends. This could be a weekly get together with each person taking turns at hosting.

Protect some time

Make a habit of being the person to reach out to others. You could have a weekly goal of one phone call to a friend or whānau member who doesn’t live close by.

Reach out

Block out time in your schedule to spend time with a mate. Think of this time as ‘protected’ so nothing else can get in the way.

Connect with the whenua

Connection doesn’t always have to be with others. Connecting with the outdoors and nature is just as powerful.

Talk To Someone You Trust

Sharing what’s going on in your life, good and bad, with people you trust is a great way to celebrate success and get things of your chest when you need.

Practice Gratitude

Taking time each day to list the things you’re grateful for improves our ability to look for the positives. Try using a gratitude journal to record your thoughts.

Connect With People

Supportive, strong relationships with friends and whanau can be a great source of strength. Arrange to catch-up with friends or family or help out in your local community.
