WashiGang News: December 2022 + Free Washi Tape & Downloads!
Hi WashiGang Crew!
We're almost at the end of the year and what a big year it has been! Are you feeling totally exhausted? This time of the year can be challenging for many, we hope you are able to take some time out to rest, recover and reset for the new year.
It's important to take care of yourself and your mental health during the holidays. Decrease your stress by talking to a friend, moving your body by going for a walk or visiting the local pool, journaling your thoughts, feelings and to-do lists, following a guided journal, or trying some mindfulness activities such as colouring, doodling or doing a puzzle, as well as making sure you get enough sleep.
Feel like you need more support? The following services can help: Lifeline, Beyond Blue or DVConnect.
