ISSUE #2 Theme: NEW BEGGININGS

Not only is Spring a time of new beginnings, but many of us have been faced with the scenario of having to begin again... and again... with all that 2020 has thrown at us. And the uncertain ride is not over yet. Looking after ourselves and doing things that are good for us to increase our capacity to cope is more important than ever. We look forward to sharing strategies on this issue that we hope will inspire you to build up your mental wellness and strength so you can continue to begin again whatever life brings tomorrow, next week or next year.

I so  admire the work that PEPTALK media is doing to grow ‘Wellbeing Literacy’ nationally. Nadine and her team are committed to helping people understand wellbeing and resilience better so they can help themselves and those they care about. Their resource is jam-packed with tools, all of which are evidence-based but practical enough to use in every day life.

I love PEPTALK for a whole host of reasons, but mostly because it aligns with my kaupapa - ie. it is an integrative approach to improving wellbeing, honing in on what is innately good about humans and fanning the spark that resides in each of us! It’s the best wellbeing publication I’ve come across in New Zealand - or anywhere for that matter.

❝ I have learnt so many little things that are helping me get through day to day and built on tips and tricks that I already had. I recommend PEPTALK to all of my friends and try to get them involved so they can take something from it too. ❞

VICTORIA BAKER

❝ I came across PEPTALK via Instagram, then I ordered it for myself and became hooked. Then I ordered four more, for my sister and friends.  I love the entire ethos, the variety of articles and that ads don’t clog up the pages.❞

❝ You have absolutely smashed it out of the park. This publication is perfect, it covers all aspects of mental health in many ways, making it easy for different people to be able to relate and make connections. The interactive parts of the magazine absolutely top it off, you don’t feel like you are just reading a heap of boring stories, it feels like the whole thing is made especially for you…. it’s awesome to see such amazing content out there for everybody.❞

❝ PEPTALK is such a joy to read and like a breath of fresh air openly talking about big and small mental health issues. It’s written in a way that is easily accessible to anyone that is lucky enough to find it. I will be adding PEPTALK as a resource for my clients, there are so many helpful take home messages and tips to help them have a better understanding of their own mental wellbeing or others they care about.❞
