December Wellbeing Challenge 2018

Sasha Austin-Seade | 1st December 2018

DECEMBER!!! You're finally here. I think it’s time for Christmas music. It’s never too early for Christmas music I hear you shout and I’m inclined to agree. (turns up the music a little louder to drown out those that object 🎄) New month, new challenge. And to round off the year I’m giving you a nice simple challenge. (There’s no such thing as an

Wellbeing Challenge - take a screen break!

Helen Bainbridge | 9th November 2018

How many times each day do you find yourself reaching for your phone, or opening social apps? Do you ever find yourself opening a social media app and then realising you'd only just closed it? If social media isn't your thing, how about email? YouTube? Netflix? Our world is so digital today. I know it's a cliche, but it can be so easy to spend so

October Wellbeing Challenge 2018

Sasha Austin-Seade | 1st October 2018

October is here and that means a new challenge! This month’s challenge is a social media detox 😱 Wait don’t close the page. I know, I know this is going to be a real challenge for some of you. It will definitely be a challenge for me. Why even do a social media detox I hear you ask? Sometimes we do things instinctively and we don’t take the time

Sasha Austin-Seade | 28th September 2018

While you’re reading this I’m probably enjoying the sun in a Ghana getting ready to be a bridesmaid for my sister's wedding.

We often feel like we’ll never achieve our dreams or that they are the stuff that fairy tales

Zero Waste

Helen Bainbridge | 31st August 2018

So, how did your zero waste challenge go? Did you learn anything, surprise yourself? Or did you forget entirely that we'd ever challenged you to go zero waste? I kind of cheated on this one - I've been trying to live with less waste for a while now. The environment is important to me, I think we have a responsibility to be good stewards of God's c

August Wellbeing Challenge 2018

Sasha Austin-Seade | 1st August 2018

Welcome to August, our focus this month is Zero Waste. What is zero waste? It’s the idea of trying to reduce your waste (what you throw away or get rid of) as much as possible. Most people don't actually achieve zero waste, but minimal waste is something we can all have a go at. Plastic seems to be the buzzword of the moment. Have you heard of the

May Wellbeing Challenge

Sasha Austin-Seade | 1st May 2018

Ditch the news April Showers bring May flowers. Spring is time of hope and new life, where things that looked like they were dead have new life. Yellow is normally the colour that is associated with spring but with the invention of things like social media and 24hr news outlets we can often focus only on things that are negative. The challenge thi

Wellbeing challenge - word of the day

Helen Bainbridge | 27th April 2018

Velitation. Frugivorous. Grok. Panchreston. Neatnik. Just a few of the new words the team have come across this month. Don't test us what they mean, though! It's been good fun finding out new (and often pretty obscure) words to add to our vocabulary, even if we've only remembered a couple. But what does that have to do with wellbeing? There's actu
