ISSUE #3 Theme: HEROES

Heroes is a relevant theme in current times, as many have stepped up around the world in the face of the new challenges we’ve faced as a global society. They stepped up to be a frontline worker, or care for a neighbour, or follow the rules even when their patience wore thin and their frustration overwhelmed them.

 

The literal definition of a hero mentions such things as a legendary figure endowed with great strength or ability, an illustrious warrior, a person admired for achievements and noble qualities, one who shows great courage …

For our purposes, the hero relates to someone who has the courage or strength to make a choice that leads to a positive outcome for their own or others’ wellbeing.

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.
