Freightways Sustainability Report 2021 - 2022

There are no quick fixes to the environmental situations humanity faces. But, with patience and determination, there are things that Freightways can, and indeed must, do to play our part in helping change the future for the better.

In this, our second Sustainability Report, we set out our own journey of change and where we see that leading us as a team and a company. 

Wellbeing Top Tips

COVID-19 has rapidly changed the way we work, socialise, travel, access healthcare, exercise, shop and live. We know many people are feeling anxious, stressed, worried and scared.

It’s time to work out how we’re going to look after our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our whānau and community as we get through this – together.

Understanding Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental Health is a positive resource that can lead to resilience, allowing us to respond effectively to the challenges we face.  Gaining a better understanding will create more positive outcomes.  For more information click on this link.

MHAW - Reconnect with Nature

MHAW - Reconnect with Nature

Reconnect with Nature

To round out the week, we’re asking you to reconnect with the beautiful taonga that is te taiao/the natural environment.  It’s often the little things that bring us joy. The singing birds, the grass beneath our feet, the wind on our faces.

Studies show exposure to nature not only makes us feel better emotionally, it contributes to our physical wellbeing. 

All the more reason to spend at least a small moment today outside – breathing in some fresh air and noticing the world around you.  You might be surprised by what you notice!

Daily Challenge:

Today we encourage you to embrace nature with someone else.

Go outdoors, snap a photo of some nature that catches your eye and send it to someone to brighten their day.

Reconnect with your Community

Today is about reconnecting with your hapori whānui/wider community. 

It’s the perfect time to sign up to be a volunteer or join a local community group, but it could also be as simple as making the effort to reconnect with people you interact with every day.  

Today is all about savouring the little hononga/connections that make us human.

Daily Challenge:

Take a moment to stop and korero with a neighbour or check out assistant.  It might make their day.

OR

Make a hoamahi/colleague a cuppa and bring in some biscuits and create a moment to reconnect in the lunchroom.  Look for opportunities to put a smile on someone’s face.

Reconnect with a Special Place

The places and spaces we spend out time in have a huge impact on how we feel.

Most of us have places we can to that calm, inspire or uplift us.

Today, make time to go to a place that is special to you and take notice of how you feel when you are there.

Daily Challenge:

Take some time away from your work environment and have your lunch at a place that makes you feel calm and uplifted.

This might be your favourite café or a nearby park.

Reconnect with a Friend or Loved One

We know life can get busy, but feeling connected to the people that are important to us can make a big difference to our mental health.

Connection brings purpose and belonging to our lives an makes us feel happier and more secure. 

Today is about reconnection with the people in our lives – it could be someone special who you have lost touch with or just wish you caught up with more often. 

Daily Challenge:

Reach out to someone you would like to reconnect with.  Call or send a message to whanau or friends.

OR

Catch up face to face if you can, especially if it has been while. 

We bet it will give you both a boost.

MHAW - Reconnect with Yourself

MHAW - Reconnect with Yourself

Reconnect with yourself

Connecting with yourself is a skill.  To start the week, begin by taking a moment to check in with yourself, acknowledge how you’re feeling and how the last few years of turbulence affected you and your connection with others and the world around you. 

This is a good time to think about the people you have lost contact with who you might want to reach out to, or the special places you haven’t visited in a while.

Take a moment to ask yourself, ‘how am I feeling today?’

Daily Challenge:

Today we encourage you to reconnect with yourself. 

Grab a pen and paper and write down three things you are grateful for.  Taking time to notice and reflect on the things we are thankful for, helps us to experience more positive emotions.

For something extra, take a moment to be present and let your creative energy flow with a mindful colouring activity.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2022

Mental Health Awareness Week (runs each year by the Mental Health Foundation) is back next week (26 Sept - 2 Oct). 

This year, Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) is all about reconnection.  The past couple of years have been tough and it’s easy to feel disconnected from the people and places that are important to us.  

Whether it’s reaching out to someone you have lost contact with, visiting a place that’s special to you or getting outside in nature.  We hope you’ll take some time this MHAW to reconnect with the people and places that uplift you – hei pikinga waiora.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori 2022

Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori 2022

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

This week is Māori language week.  Every year since 1975 New Zealand has marked Māori Language Week. This year is extra special as 14 September marks the 50th anniversary of the Māori Language Petition.

The Māori Language Petition (Te Petihana) presentation to Parliament on 14 September 1972, with over 30,000 signatures, kickstarted major shifts in the revival of te reo Māori as a living language in Aotearoa New Zealand.

During the week: 

ReoMāori Socials

Follow ReoMāori on Instagram or Facebook for all the latest updates on Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori.

The team who create content for ReoMāori, provide downloadable resources like these below, to help you on your te reo Māori journey.

Waiata Anthems

Listen to acclaimed music artists, like Six60, Drax Project and Sol3 Mio who have recorded songs in te reo Māori.

You can also watch on TVNZ on demand as they share their personal stories when translating and recording their songs.

Kōreoreo App

If you are interested in learning te reo Māori, with many courses having waiting lists, or you may not be ready to formally learn just yet, some of the ways you can start your journey are with resources like the kōreroreo app.  Created by AUT, this is a free app that teaches how to use te reo Māori in real life situations.

What is a Karakia?

As the week comes to an end, and you bring together whānau and friends over food, try saying a Karakia mō te Kai – blessing the food.

Karakia are prayers or chants that invoke guidance and protection. 

Karakia mō te kai – blessing of food – is said or sung before eating our kai.  There are many versions, and most give thanks to those who have grown and prepared the food and can be religious.

Many version of karakia can be found online such as the Te Puni Kōkiri website or on YouTube.
