Introducing our Tātau Tātau Whānau Wellbeing Project via The Meke Meter!

Whānau, do you think about how you are tracking with your health and wellbeing on a day-to-day basis? Do you want to be part of contributing to a healthier future for the Whānau, Hapū and Iwi of te Rohe o Te Wairoa?

Introducing our Whānau Wellbeing Project – aimed at promoting good health and wellbeing amongst our people. It’s part of our long-term strategy to ensure our people are prosperous, vibrant, innovative, healthy and at the heart of decision-making for the future.

To take part, you’re invited to sign up to The Meke Meter, a free, interactive online platform that allows you to rate and record your wellbeing each day. You can then also identify areas that you may want to focus on. You can also choose to share your results with whānau and work on improving your wellbeing together.

Give it a go! The Meke Meter is fun to use together with your whānau, particularly while we are in Alert Level 4. We will also send more pānui over the next few weeks via email and social media to provide tips on using The Meke Meter.

What is The Meke Meter? 

The Meke Meter is a wellbeing monitoring tool based on Te Whare Tapa Whā, designed by Māori, for Māori. By simply rating 1-10 how you feel about mahi, school, finances, whānau, fitness, nutrition, motivation and self-esteem, you will better understand your holistic wellbeing. 

Studies have shown that using The Meke Meter helps you to better understand your personal wellbeing and take steps to improve this over time. Getting involved and using The Meke Meter encourages kōrero with whānau at home, creates greater understanding of, and manaakitanga for, each other’s situation, recognises common areas and helps generate ideas of how to improve our collective wellbeing.

The collective results will give us a better understanding of what support our people need so we can put things in place to enable better wellbeing. 

How does it work?

The Meke Meter consists of 15 questions that cover the areas of physical, social and mental wellbeing. Thinking about how you rate yourself in each of these areas, will help promote self-care and encourage you to be more engaged with ways to improve your wellbeing.

Our wellbeing as individuals and whānau are closely connected to our natural environment and enhanced through practising our values and reconnecting with our culture and traditions. This is core to our Moemoeā – our shared aspirations for the future of our people: That the Whānau, Hapū and Iwi of Te Rohe o Te Wairoa are prosperous, healthy and aspirational; proudly identifying and connecting with Te Ao Māori; kaitiaki for a restored natural environment; and informed key decision-makers for our future.

If we all participate, we can create community solutions to improve our quality of life, and the collective health of our Whānau, Hāpu, and Iwi. We have health promotion, mental health and cultural experts to help us with the project.

Rangatahi – we need you!

We’ve teamed up with Wairoa’s own Rugged and Wylde to share what’s important to our Rangatahi, and find out why registering with Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa is so important for our future.

This clip is the start of a range of video and blogs that will be developed over the coming months.

There has been a growing desire within and outside Te Wairoa for the inclusion of rangatahi in some way at a governance level of Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust. Our current Deed enables the formation of a council of kaumātua but makes no provision for a similar structure for rangatahi.

We can change this, by creating a new structure that meets the needs of our Trust and the ambitions of our rangatahi.

Watch this space and ‘like’ and follow us on Facebook as we release more – and share the video while you’re there! Provide your insight, experience and perspectives on what the future could look like if you had a chance to design it – register with your iwi, join the conversation and help us shift our future into overdrive.

Nau mai haere mai tātau tātau kātoa.
Apiata Tapine, Trustee, Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust
