Do you use Kirikiriroa's river paths?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Speeding cyclists on the paths have been raised as a concern by Hamilton City councillors.

Cr Martin Gallagher is worried there will soon be an accident, saying "there’s a small minority of very, very bad, arrogant cyclists who think they are at the velodrome".

Help us to "Light up Loneliness" by encouraging your local council to get involved.

The Team from Age Concern New Zealand

Loneliness is a growing issue for Kiwis of all ages. But the good news is, that it is solvable!

Loneliness is a growing issue for Kiwis of all ages. But the good news is, that it is solvable!


The NZ Coalition to End Loneliness is running a ‘Light up loneliness’ campaign this month to raise awareness and encourage action on loneliness across Aotearoa.

The New Zealand Coalition to End Loneliness is a growing group of non-profit organisations, businesses and researchers working together to end loneliness for individuals, in communities, and at workplaces in New Zealand.

They are now calling on Local Government to help them “Light up loneliness”.

“Imagine if every Mayor and Council across New Zealand helped promote the “Lets End Loneliness” website and made tackling loneliness a priority, using their own local community resources,” says Stephanie Clare, Age Concern New Zealand Chief Executive.

“It would be a gamechanger. Taking this issue out of the shadows, reducing the stigma and shame, and giving it light is the aim of the campaign” she says.

Social connection is a key factor for healthy, prosperous people, communities, and workplaces, but loneliness in New Zealand is increasing. In the March 2021 quarter 18.4% of New Zealanders felt lonely most, all or some of the time, up from 16.6% in 2018, and 13.9% in 2014.

“Many of us have experienced loneliness at some time in our lives and we know that feels horrible, but it can be addressed and solved. Together we can end loneliness for New Zealanders who feel isolated” says Sam Johnson, Founder and Chief Executive of Student Volunteer Army.

The letsendloneliness.co.nz website provides information on tackling loneliness and where to get help, as well as up-to-date news and research.

“The website is designed as a source of information which also links people to support services. We challenge every Local Council in New Zealand to create a link on their own websites to letsendloneliness.co.nz” says Sam Johnson.

The recent COVID-19 lockdown highlights that everyone can feel isolated and lonely. Catherine Hall, Chief Executive of Alzheimers New Zealand believes everyone should feel safe, supported, loved, and connected.

“Sadly, people often find family, whānau and friends take a step back just when they need them most. We stand alongside our coalition partners and with all New Zealanders, to make sure no one feels alone.”

Help light up loneliness! The campaign is not just for councils. Anyone can create a link to the letsendloneliness.co.nz or post a mention through social media channels to support the ‘Light up loneliness’ campaign.

Together we can end loneliness, one person, one community, one workplace at a time.

How are you going with the constant worry, anxiety and confusion of today’s times.

Many of us have brain fog, sleeping badly and finding it hard to stay kind.

Our bodies are going into fight or flight mode.

This is a left over mechanism for survival from our ancestors past when on the savannah they encounter a sabre tooth tiger.

This same mode is triggered when we are stressed.

Great for short term survival – very bad with modern stress.

Our bodies shut down other functions to be ready to run or fight.

Our adrenal glands pumped and ready to fire.

Over time this is very detrimental to our health.

Affecting digestion, nerves, circulation and capacity to stay calm.

If this is affecting you.

You will need to make time to de stress.

When you place your body in a state/moment of ‘peace’ and calm breathing.

Your body will believe you are ‘safe’.

Practice this mindfulness through breathing, stretching, exercise, music etc.

Find your happy place – and ‘be happy’ in that moment.

Watch your breathing.

Calm deep breathing will tell your body you are ‘safe’

Watch your mind talk.

Staying in the present will help your body to stay calm.

When your body feels ‘safe’ and breathes like you are not stressed.

The fight or flight adrenal and heart re action will be mollified.

And the reactionary state subside.

And this equates to better health.

Stress gives rise to higher cortisol levels in the blood.

These in turn make it difficult to sleep.

I recommend SATTVA Ashwagandha.

Take 2 capsules between dinner and bedtime to lessen the cortisol levels and aid better sleep.

For best results the therapeutic dosage must be taken.

2 capsules of our Ashwagandha is a therapeutic dose.

To combat stress It is vital to get enough sleep

Also.

Drink enough water

And stay away from processed high sugar/fat foods.

Supporting you to being in the best wellness you can obtain while we go through these difficult times.

Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, which has been prescribed as a stress adaptogen, first discovered in 6,000 BC!

An adaptogenic herb is a highly effective, evidence-based remedy to help reduce stress, fatigue, and worry—by supporting normal cortisol and GABA levels, helping the body adapt to stress.

Or take 1-2 capsules, 1-2 times daily to support the following:

Stress

Fatigue

Worry

Trouble sleeping

Kia Kaha NZ.

Always take as directed

On Saturday we had a parcel which had been sent per NZ Post Couriers delivered to our letter box, not by NZ Post but by a person who had found it on the road a kilometre away! With it a note: Courier dropped on road, Homestead Place. I have tried to contact NZ Post Couriers per phone to no avail. I rang the 0800 number and was directed to a series of numbers, but nothing for complaints. I then tried their website and found a section for feedback. They said that they would not answer feedback but I decided to write something anyway but the comment box only allowed me to enter one line. Obviously they don't want complaints. I will in future not deal with NZ companies who intend to send my goods per NZ Post Couriers. Meanwhile, many thanks to the kind and honest person in Homestead Place who took the trouble to deliver the parcel.
