Welcome to You Own It.  OWN stands for One Wellness Network: YOUR wellness network – You Own It.

This website is a safe and supportive place to enable you to own your personal wellness challenges. We are here to empower, advise and promote dialogue within a like-minded community.

We are also here to encourage and demonstrate how like-minded organisations can get involved, learn and better support us: there is a huge percentage of our population who face our world with wellness challenges and it is our responsibility to begin open dialogue regarding these.

This is a place where health professionals can collaborate and convene to ensure a joined-up approach and where we can all seek appropriate guidance from them – and from each other.

Mind
Wellness

We all have minds and therefore we can all experience a mind wellness challenge during the course of our lives – even if you may not recognise it as such. This can be from everyday stress – to ongoing and clinically diagnosed mental health problems. We are here to start an open dialogue around mind wellness as hundreds of thousands of people struggle with internally and externally managing their own particular challenge.

Some of us just aren’t very good at asking for help. We are here to demonstrate that most people face a mind wellness issue at some point in their lives and once this dialogue begins, you might feel better able as well as empowered to manage your own mind wellness.

Body
Wellness

Physical wellness challenges come in all shapes and sizes, as does the support that is out there. It can be hard to know where to turn, or how to assess the best route to managing and improving your own particular circumstances.

We might not be aware that we have, or are susceptible to, a body wellness challenge. You Own It is here to start conversations about different types of body wellness challenges alongside providing guidance as to ways in which we can better manage our own body wellness.

Everyday
Wellness

It’s essential to maximise your day-to-day health and wellbeing within the unique and individual life you lead. This affects all other aspects of wellness so getting into good habits for everyday wellness, with the right advice and support, is something we firmly believe in because, more than anything else, creating your own positive habits can lead up to you being able to own your everyday wellness.

Social
Wellness

We all live in a world that presents constant challenges to our social wellness. Whilst our social lives are often fulfilling and fun, the pressures of balancing and coping with our friendships, relationships and interactions with work colleagues can lead to wellness issues.

We need to ensure that we create balance in our lives for happiness and contentment to be achieved. You Own It strives to provide support and guidance to enable you to work towards this in your own lives.

AliceAlice is a young (ish) mum, with a usually bouncy and vibrant view of the world around her. After having her first baby she found herself feeling a little bit lost and is on her own journey to reclaiming herself. She loves good food and a good cocktail but it’s time to put that into moderation and get herself back into an exercise regime that fits around a little one.

JarardJarard is a 37-year-old male from Reporoa, New Zealand. Reporoa is a small rural area mostly made up of forestry and dairy farms. He owns a 6-acre block of land where he lives and raises a few sheep and cows for his own consumption. He enjoys the outdoors and his hobbies are hunting, quad bike riding and basically anything outdoors. Jarard is a T5 paraplegic and works 4 days a week for Rex Bionics. Rex Bionics is an exoskeleton company based in Auckland NZ, 4 hours’ drive from where he lives. So, he travels and stays in Auckland for this time, he does this as he’s not into the bright lights of the city, being born and raised on a dairy farm. Jarard had a car accident in 2006 that resulted in his spinal cord injury. He has always worked to not let his disability stop him from doing anything and still believes anything is possible with the right drive and motivation.

HannahI’m Hannah and I’m not an anorexic. This is what I would say if I went along to ‘Anorexics Anonymous.’ Anorexia invaded my mind and my body for a decade and tried to destroy Hannah. But I am not an anorexic and I’m re-claiming my identity.

These blog posts chart the recovery of a 33 year old chronic anorexia sufferer as I seize my life back from Ana and rediscover my voice in the world. I hope that my fight back against Ana will help, encourage and inspire others suffering from eating disorders, especially those who have been ill for a long time like me. My decade long struggle with Ana has also given me lots of ideas about how treatments could be improved and I hope to start a conversation about change.
