101 Ways of Living

There are lots of great things about living in New Zealand, but unfortunately there are also some negatives. We have one of the highest domestic violence rates in the world and one in five Kiwi kids lives in poverty.


At Lifewise, we see the impact that social issues have on people’s lives – homelessness, poverty, families torn apart and people of all ages living in isolation. Materially many people in New Zealand have more than previous generations, but are we really better off?

We believe it is possible to live wisely and well. To do this we need to change the way we treat each other, spend more time with each other and care for each other so we can pass on a healthier New Zealand to the next generation.

So, start by doing something today. We’ve come up with some ideas for every day actions that can help our world. See our list of 101 Ways of Living Wisely (and Well) and share what works for you and your family.
