Sustaining Ourselves.

Sustaining Ourselves
We are learning to address the factors that can affect our wellbeing

Next to each of these scenarios write down which area of your wellbeing is being affected - social/whanau, spiritual, mental/emotional or physical. You might find that they affect more than one area

  • Going for a run> Physical

  • Playing a sports game with others> Social/Family

  • Going to church, the marae, temple..>Spiritual

  • Listening to your favorite music> Mental/Emotional

  • Eating fresh fruit and vegetables> Physical

  • Learning from a grandparent or caregiver> Social/Family

  • Taking part in a cultural club or activity> Spiritual

  • Getting enough sleep> Physical

Imagine you are part of the following scenarios. Make a decision that will positively impact on your wellbeing and note which aspect of your wellbeing is affected.

  1. You and your older brother have been given some money to buy food for you and your younger siblings for the next few days. You are tempted to buy take away, but you have to buy enough food for breakfast, lunch (for school/pre-school) and dinner for two days. I would just by food for breakfast and lunch I won’t buy take away because we need food for lunch and breakfast or else we might starve.

You are having a really bad day and feel yourself getting angry and upset. You had a small argument with a friend earlier in the day, but you are now really angry at them. The bell will be ringing in ten minutes and you will have to sit next to this friend. What could you do? Make up and say sorry.

  1. You have just changed schools and are missing your old friend and activities. At your old school you played for the school rugby team, but you have not played sport here, except for in P.E. Join rugby at the new school and show off and make friends so the others know that I am good at rugby.

4. If you were Tongan, but your parents were born and grew up in New Zealand. They taught you English since you were born so that you would find New Zealand life easier, but they did not teach you much Tongan. At school you see other students speaking Tongan and participating in Tongan clubs and dancing. Although you feel happy in New Zealand, you wish you could connect to your Tongan roots. I would learn off the website ask my parents to teach me all that they know and learn off youtube and learn dances on youtube I would also ask my friends at school to teach me how to speak tongan.
