A new week brings new opportunities and achievements 💪
Start your week by making a list of the things that you want to achieve. These should be tasks that are realistic and can be done with a little motivation. At the end of the week reflect back on your list and congratulate yourself with all the achievements you have had.
Getting a simple check of your blood pressure and heart can help to diagnose and treat heart disease, which is one of Australia’s largest health problems.
To reduce your risk of heart disease be sure to live an active and healthy lifestyle, including physical exercise, on the recommendation of your doctor, having a balanced and healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight.

During my working week I spend a lot of time dealing with mental health concerns. From anxiety, to depression to eating disorders amongst many others. Mental health is a serious and real issue. One in five Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year. Often people may be too shy or worried about judgment to come forward and seek help, however, there is ample support if you need it. Your general practitioner can facilitate psychological therapy sessions, medication or even just regular support, because a problem shared is a problem halved.
If you or someone you know is struggling please pop by and see me in clinic for further help.
Why not prioritise yourself with a health check this week. Checking your blood pressure is a great start. Having a high blood pressure often comes with little to no symptoms, but the risks of having a serious medical condition such as a heart attack or stroke are increased.
The good news is, if you do have high blood pressure this can be managed through lifestyle changes and medication bringing your risk down.
