Enjoy some sunshine & sun light... good for the head, good for the heart

Raewyn Bell from Northgate Community Services Trust

Hello again, Just thinking that a dose of sunshine is good for us all. It can enhance mood, create vitamin D, help us unwind & relax, etc. 20-30 mins daily of morning light (getting into real outside light at 7-8am) can help us get to sleep better in the evening. Have a coffee outside … View moreHello again, Just thinking that a dose of sunshine is good for us all.

Care for your head space during this "lock down"

Raewyn Bell from Northgate Community Services Trust

One of the most important things we can do for ourselves during this "lock-down" is to care for our head space. Ironically one of the best ways to do this is to get some exercise - at what ever level works for you. A walk or bike-ride is great but that doesn't work for everyone so … View moreOne of the most important things we can do for ourselves during this "lock-down" is to care for our head space. Ironically one of the best ways to do this is to get some exercise - at what ever level works for you. A walk or bike-ride is great but that doesn't work for everyone so do some of the exercises you already know about, or there are exercise options on your television and on FaceBook. Give it a go. Make it part of your routine

Yes we are, but we are monitoring government advice and requirements on a daily basis. If needed we will make changes to our services. We have a plentiful supply of hand sanitiser and hand soap and encourage good hygiene. One piece of advice that we really value is "if you are showing any signs of a sore throat, cough, cold, or breathing difficulty then please don't come inside our building. If you are not in good health but need something please ring, email or message us and we will see what we can do to support you. Thanks so much. Kia kaha !!!
