Te Atatu South, West Auckland

About Te Atatu South:

Te Atatu South is a residential suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. Te Atatu in Maori means dawn. Located on the Te Atatū Peninsula, it has coastlines on its eastern and western sides, with walkways and bike paths on both sides. Its location makes the suburb convenient access to to the city and Henderson town centre, and its elevation gives beautiful views of the city and the Waitakere Ranges. 

In the 2018 New Zealand census, Te Atatu South had a population of 15,138 with 4,794 households.

History

The original Maori name for the Te Atatu area was Orukuwai. There is little evidence of early Maori settlement in the region, although the coastal fringes show evidence that the banks were used for fishing and bird hunting. Midden shells have been uncovered around the McLeod Reserve.

The European settlement started between 1853 and 1873 when Thomas Henderson bought land from Ngati Whatua and the Crown in 1855. The Henderson Timber Mill was built in what is now known as Henderson.

The area prior to the suburban development was primarily used for vineyards, poultry farms, fruit trees, apples, lemon orchards and flower farms.

Main Centres and Parks

Te Atatu South's main hub is the Te Atatū Town Centre, where Edmonton Road and Te Atatu Road converge. There is a small, light industrial area on McLeod Road.

Te Atatu South Park and McLeod Park are two major parks in the area.

Meet Matt, our Mr. May Refill Pinup, and Lola! 👑🐶.
🌱 I refill because… 
It’s clean, it's mean, and if it ain’t sustainable… it ain’t worth it! As consumers, I think we should all be making more environmentally-friendly decisions, as there’s power in what we pay for. We vote with our wallets! I don’t like collecting nasty non-recyclables when I shop, and Refill Nation helps me get around this. The cool staff keep the place tickety boo and always brighten your day too!
.
💡 My best waste-free discovery… 
Glass jars. Since shopping at Refill Nation, I now use glass jars for so much more than before. They're airtight, recyclable, and can be used again and again. This is another great opportunity to ditch nasty single-use plastics.
.
🍫 My fave Refill Nation snack… 
Has to be the roasted almonds! Immensely moreish and equally healthy. For Lola (aka “the furry bullet”), the dried liver snacks are her favourite, but, she still plans on tasting the remaining dog snacks on offer.
.
🤔 At first I thought eco-living was… 
Whalesong, Tie-Dye t-shirts, world music, and dreadlocks.
.
🌼 But now I know… 
Being sustainable is about making a conscious effort to look after the planet with what you buy, what you use, and how you live.

This week in my new space has been an absolute vibe! What an honor it is to provide the time and space for productive rest.
.
Remember that term- productive rest. Its not just receiving a massage, it's anything you like to do that turns down the internal noise and gives you the opportunity to gain clarity and perspective over your thoughts and feelings.
.
Prioritizing time for productive rest will help you show up as a better you. Your future self/ health will thank you for it.

Fake it until you become it!

Slapping on a smile, walking outside, getting some sunshine... It's not all just a way to pretend yourself to changing your mood.

There are some real-life chemical changes going on inside your body, to physiologically make you feel better too!

A trick I use to keep myself upbeat, is to literally start out by faking it.

Forcing the smile.
Forcing the 'motivation' to get outside.
Forcing the legs to go for their walk.

But soon enough, you no longer have to force that stuff, and instead naturally arrive at a better place inside your head.

It works.

(Of course, I'm not talking here about true diagnosed depression).

And that's exactly what this arvo called for after an emotional experience today!

Do you fake it until ya become it too, when it's called for?

💚
