🧠AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM!🧠

The ANS is responsible for regulating involuntary bodily functions - heartbeat, digestion, respiratory rate, glandular secretion, hormonal balance, immune response 🫀🫁🦠
We do not consciously control this part of our nervous system! It is innately wired, and operates behind the scenes. The primary objective of the ANS is to maintain internal balance (homeostasis) and allow the body to respond appropriately to changes in the environment. 🧠🧬🧘‍♂️

The two main division of the ANS - Sympathetic and Parasympathetic - work to regulate all physiological processes within the body:
🟣 SYMPATHETIC (fight or flight system):
😳 Responds to stress and perceived threats
😳 Prepares body for action by increasing heart rate, dilating airways, and releasing adrenaline
😳 Designed for short-term performance enhancement in order to survive
🟣 PARASYMPATHETIC (rest, digest, recover, heal):
😇 Promotes relaxation and conservation of energy
😇 Regulates bodily functions during restful states, and diverts energy to processes not necessary in stress response state
😇 Allows the body to recover, restore and heal
If both divisions are working appropriately, the body can adapt well to changes in its external and internal environments. When we over-activate the fight-or-flight response, it can inhibit parasympathetic function - lowering our overall resilience to stress and limiting our ability to heal optimally! 🚨😳
Restoring balance to the Autonomic Nervous System allows the body to THRIVE! 🧠⚡️
Get in touch with us to find out how!

Funds raised by Lotto New Zealand players fuels growth of Hakaru community hall

From joyous celebrations like weddings and birthdays, to solemn gatherings for farewells; Hakaru Community Hall stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of its community.

The hall has been the heart of Hakaru for nearly a century and recently underwent a refresh to meet the changing needs of the community with funding support from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board.

“The grant has been huge in helping us make improvements, including the installation of a new entrance and upgrading of some of our older amenities,” says Secretary Dennis Reeve.

Over the years, the Hall has witnessed generations come together in times of happiness and sorrow and symbolises more than just a space, it’s a bond that unites the Hakaru community.

The grant also recently helped the hall committee to expand its offerings from hosting dance, yoga, and pilates classes to providing a space for local musicians to practice.

With every step forward, Hakaru Hall is committed to fostering connection, culture, and community spirit for another century to come with the help of local grants.

This is just one of the incredible causes keeping our heritage alive, with 100% of Lotto New Zealand’s profits going back to support thousands of great causes all over Aotearoa. So, every time you play any Lotto New Zealand game, it’s a win for our communities.

A huge congratulations to mother and son duo, Mary and Sam Danielson from The Puketapu Hotel.

The votes for all finalists have been tallied and they have been chosen by Neighbourly members across the country as the Prospa Local Business Hero of 2024.

The Puketapu Hotel was nominated by a local called Margaret and the nomination reads:
'On Feb 14, 2023, Cyclone Gabrielle flooded many of the rural areas. Puketapu Hotel went under perhaps half a meter of water. However, immediately Mary Danielson and her son, Sam Danielson, along with their loyal staff pulled it together to cook copious amounts of food that without electricity would have been wasted. Throughout the years many of us have been treated with a pub gathering where we can reconnect and a free meal. At Christmas there was Santa, games, gifts for kids, donated patchwork for adults, an ice cream truck and lots of camaraderie.
This February on the cyclone anniversary, they again pulled out the stops to give hundreds of us a special night. We are all tired of the cyclone cleanup and they understood that it was needed.'

Such a deserving business and team, well done Mary and Sam. And thank you to all those who voted!

From early June, road reconstruction work will begin on State Highway 2, High Street, Carterton until early July, weather permitting.

The works are between Rhodes Street and south of Andersons Line. Southbound vehicles will need to detour at Somerset Road, Carters Line and Park Road which adds a significant amount of time to journeys. Northbound traffic can travel through High Street with speed limits in place. We encourage you to plan ahead to avoid delays.

This section of the road is in poor condition so it’s important for the safety of everyone who uses the road that this work is undertaken. The works will be unavoidably disruptive for the Carterton community and SH2 users in the Wairarapa.

We appreciate that roadworks are inconvenient for neighbours, and thank the community in advance for their patience while we complete these major works.
