MHAW Day 1 – Kia Kori | Be Active

Kia ora UC whānau,

Today is Day 1 of Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW). This week is all about bringing awareness to the fact that we all have an experience with mental health and wellbeing, and there are small things we can do every day to help support positive mental health.

Each day we will have a theme, aligning to one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing. Our theme for today is Kia Kori | Be Active. Being active can take many different forms, and it doesn’t have to include an intense run or gym session! Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park a little further away from campus, go to that Zumba class or dance in your own living room! Make movement fun and do things that make you feel good.

Here’s what is happening around campus today!

UC Rec and Sport Kahoot – $300 in prizes!

That’s right – $300 in prizes! Put your sport and physical activity knowledge to the test tonight at 7pm. Visit the UC Rec and Sport Facebook page for more info.

Have you signed up for the 10,000 steps challenge yet?

Did you think we couldn’t give away any more prizes? Well we have another $150 worth of Rebel Sport vouchers to give away for three lucky winners who have registered for the 10,000 steps challenge and completed 40,000 steps by the end of MHAW. If you are up for the challenge, get more info here.
