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.

Celebrate Cook Islands Language Week - 2022

Celebrate: Sunday 31 July – Saturday 6 August

This year’s theme for ‘Epetoma o te reo Māori Kūki ‘Āirani – Cook Islands Language Week is ‘Ātuitui’ia au ki te Oneone o tōku ‘Ui Tupuna which means, connect me to the soil of my ancestors.

‘Ātuitui’ia au ki te Oneone o tōku ‘Ui Tupuna reflects on the journey of Cook Islands peoples in New Zealand, as well as the longing of young Cook Islanders to connect with their language, culture, and identity.

The theme reflects the overarching 2022 Pacific Language Week theme of Sustainability, by linking the importance of language sharing and cultural heritage being handed down over generations.

Reconnect

with the people and places that lift you up

This year's Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) is 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, join us this MHAW to reconnect with the people and places that lift you up to enhance your wellbeing - hei pikinga waiora.

Find the Good in Every Day

Find the Good in Every Day

Find the Good in Every Day

When times are tough, don't forget the good stuff!

Taking time to notice and be grateful for the good stuff every day increases your chances of getting through hard times, and can make you happier in the good times.

One of the simplest things we can do is a gratitude practice. Research shows that practising gratitude not only improves our mental health, but it can improve our relationships and physical health too.

Why? Because it lifts our thinking out of ourselves a little bit. It shifts our perspective from what is wrong, to what is going well or what is important to us. It’s simple cognitive tricks like this that can have profound effects on our wellbeing day to day.

Stress and How to Manage It

Stress and How to Manage It

Stress and How to Manage It

Stress is a natural occurrence in a life and everyday stress is necessary for growth and development. The danger lies in too much stress or prolonged stress.

What is stress?

‘Stress’ describes our physical, mental and emotional response to a situation that we experience as a demand or pressure – called a ‘stressor’. Many stressors are external, from our environment, such as work, finances, relationships, parenting and day-to-day inconveniences and busyness. However, stressors can also be internal, such as negative thoughts, beliefs or attitudes.

What are some warning signs of stress?

Physical, in the body:

  • Shortness of breath or shallow breathing
  • Indigestion, stomach upsets
  • Headaches and pains in lower back, chest, shoulders or other parts of the body
  • Skin itches or rashes for no clear reason
  • Frequent colds or flu
  • Nervous ‘twitches’ or muscle spasms
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Changes in your sleeping patterns

Emotional, in your feelings:

  • Feeling impatient or irritable
  • Losing confidence
  • Feeling anxious, tense or tearful
  • Losing your joy and energy for life

Behavioural, in your actions:

  • Losing interest in family/whānau, friends or work
  • Poor self-care
  • Relying on drugs, alcohol, caffeine or overeating
  • Finding it hard to make decisions

Any persistent symptoms should be checked out by a GP or Māori health provider.

What can I do about stress?

One way to reduce stress is to change the stressor (cause). Another way is to cope differently with stress. Here are some ways to help you reduce and prevent too much stress and tension. But you have to practice!

  • Talk your worries over with a friend, your partner, whānau, counsellor, a helpline, someone you trust.
  • Set realistic goals. Let go of unreasonable expectations. Be selective and use your energy to do the most important and possible tasks.
  • Eat well. Eat a variety of fresh foods in a well balanced diet. 
  • Make time to exercise. Get active at least three times a week. Exercising outdoors is especially helpful.
  • Take time out. Give yourself a breather every now and then - even just a short break during the day at mahi or at home. Do something you really enjoy.
  • Get good sleep. A walk in the evening, meditation or practicing relaxation can help. Avoid taking sleeping tablets as they will disrupt your sleeping pattern even more.

This linked pamphlet provides useful information on what contributes to stress, the warning signs to watch for and how to manage your stress.

Matariki 2022

Matariki 2022

Matariki 2022

The celebration of the stars is important, but more so is the celebration of whanaungatanga (family connection). This is a time to spend time with those you care about, using the long nights to cook together, laugh together, share kōrero (stories), whakapapa (lineage), mātauranga (wisdom), and waiata (waiata).

It is a time to reflect on what has passed and what is to come.

Mānawatia a Matariki - Happy Maori New Year!

This year’s theme for Vaiaso o le Gagana Samoa - Samoa Language Week 2021 is Fa’aāuāu le Folauga i le Va’a o Tautai - Continue the Voyage with Competent Wayfinders of the Ocean.

As part of this year’s overarching theme of ‘Sustainability’, the Samoan community chose a theme that would reflect the journey of language revitalisation and maintenance as well as recognising the importance of having the right tools, good leadership skills, relationships and the correct medium (va’a) that is adaptable to faring the ocean and its elements.

2022 is also a significant year for the Samoan community, being the 60th anniversary of Samoa Independence.
