How do you make time for yourself?
Community Access Support Service
(CASS) networker Letty Anderton has been pulling together a series
of community profiles for local people in North Bristol, asking the
question 'How do you make time for yourself?' Through this project,
we see an insight into the many different ways that people relax
and unwind in their busy lives.
"The project is about celebrating things that are good for our
wellbeing and ensuring that we make time for them in our lives,"
For some, being connected to nature is essential, such as Maria
from Buzz Cafe in Lockleaze, who walks her dog daily in Stoke Park
Woods. Others, like Wendy from Henbury and Brentry Community
Council, prefer time at home to relax.
These profiles are being publicised through social media, local
newspapers and displayed in community venues across North Bristol.
With the aim to start off conversations about wellbeing in our
communities, it also provides the opportunity to tell people about
support and services available if people are struggling with their
The messages in the project are ones that many of us can relate
to. It's sometimes difficult to make time for ourselves, but we
know how much better we feel when do. It's good reminder for us
all, as we appreciate how essential this is for our mental health
