How do you make time for yourself?

CASS campaignCommunity 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," says Letty.

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 mental health.

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 and wellbeing.
