Whether it’s soaking up the mauri/essence of the ocean, getting out for a hīkoi/walk in the bush, or taking notice of the beauty around us – this year we’ve really had to tune into the simple things that matter and strengthen our hauora/wellbeing.
The Mental Health Foundation’s Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) Wellbeing Photo Challenge is back for 2020, where you can showcase what wellbeing looks and feels like for you!
How to take part
On each day of the challenge (21-25 September), upload a photo related to the daily theme to Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram. Make sure you use the hashtag #MHAWNZ and tag The Mental Health Foundation (learn more about how to do that here).
Inspired by Te Whare Tapa Whā, here are the daily photo challenge themes:

Recharge with others – Whiria te muka tangata
Rātū / Tuesday: Wairua
Rediscover everyday wonder – Whāia ngā mīharotanga o ia rā
Rāapa / Wednesday: Whenua
Return to nature – Hono ki te taiao
Rāpare / Thursday: Tinana
