Living and feeling better can start with a simple step-connecting. Health Connections Mendip is provided by your Mendip GP practices to improve your health and wellbeing.
At Health Connections Mendip we are always looking out for ways to feel more connected and a part of the community. We want to create a movement of kindness and feeling connected in our community that will have a positive impact on our health and wellbeing.
Last year we designed a heart image that people could print our or colour-in and enjoy displaying at home in their windows with the message of keeping in touch. This year for 2022 we have asked her to design an exciting new image that spreads a green and healthy message.
We know that there are many things we can do to care for our planet that are also good for our health. We tried to pack as many things as possible into the illustration, you could design your own heart with all the things that are important to you.
We invite you to display a heart in your window or somewhere that people can see it easily. You may like to print out the black and white version and spend some time colouring it in. Some people find colouring-in relaxing. It is very easy to do and the end results are an attractive design.
Whatever design you go for we’d love to see the community covered in hearts. This project is for all ages, anyone and everyone can get involved with it. We hope the green community heart image will be used as a conversation starter around climate change and healthy lifestyle changes. We now run regular training sessions with our Green Health Connector who explores the link between the changes we can make to support the environment and our health.
Our upcoming session are listed on Eventbrite here: Health Connections Mendip Events | Eventbrite
We hope that people take enjoyment not only from creating the picture but from seeing them when they are out and about. If you’d like to share your image with us online use #GreenCommunityHearts across our social media. You’ll find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
The images are available to download and print here:
