Fun facts about Abel Tasman
Lake Taupo
Fox Glacier was named after the former New Zealand Prime Minister, Sir William Fox, after he painted a beautiful watercolour of the glacier upon his visit in 1872.
Taupo region
‘Fox Glacier’ is known as ‘Te Moeka o Tuawe’ in Maori meaning ‘The bed of Tuawe’. Maori legend tells us that  Tuawe was exploring the valley with his beloved Hine Hukatere and was sadly swept away by an avalanche.  Her tears of sorrow were made into glaciers by Rangi the Sky Father and Fox Glacier became Tuawe’s resting place.  

Ancient pohutukawa
Fox Glacier has been the cause of flash flooding for thousands of years. Melted snow and rain gather in the gaps between the two mountain sides and slowly freeze. Liquid water remains trapped and is released when the parts of the glacier holding it back finally break.

Wellness Workshop - Stress Management

WELLNESS WORKSHOP

Stress Management

Stress is a word we hear often in the workplace and in our personal lives.   We usually tend to see stress as a bad thing, but there are different types of stress and some stress can actually help us thrive, excite us and help us overcome challenges.  The “bad” stress however, can lead to a breakdown in our relationships, affect our performance at work and ultimately take a toll on our health.
 
This fortnight, June will be talking about ways to manage stress by creating a toolbox of techniques and activities that you can use when you need it.  She’ll also be teaching you how to identify good stress or “Eustress” and ways to maximise the positive effects it will have on your day.
 This is a really important topic, so make sure you tune in!
