My top tip to help your mental health today is to remember that the news is incentivised to keep you watching. Whilst it is important to get information about the situation, being over-exposed to large amounts of the same information can be very taxing.
Very often we compare ourselves to others and wish we were different in some way. Sometimes we can use these thoughts in a positive and productive manner to better ourselves. Most of the time however, we get negative and end up in a spiral that can be damaging to our confidence and self-esteem.
Today, I’m asking you all to look in the mirror and reflect on the amazing person your are. Throughout life you’ve jumped through hurdles and achieved many things whether big or small. 💪
Sending you all some positivity and feel good vibes. 💖
Approximately 1 in 70 Australians have a condition known as Coeliac Disease. This means that they are unable to eat products that contain gluten, including bread and foods made with rye, wheat and barley 🍞. When such foods are eaten symptoms such as tummy ache, tiredness and weight loss can occur. These symptoms disappear once gluten is taken out of the diet.
Most Australians don’t know they suffer from Coeliac disease. Diagnosis is important because if it’s left without management, small bowel damage can occur leading to poor absorption of vitamins.
Testing for coeliac disease can include a blood test which your doctor can organise, however, you should have eaten gluten in the preceding 6 weeks.
Coeliac disease is managed with a strict gluten free diet, sometimes seeing a dietician can be helpful.
