As our firefighters continue the heroic job of containing bushfires, many people may be affected by smoke.
Signs of smoke irritation include itchy eyes, sore throat, runny nose and coughing. Those with pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma may have worsened symptoms of wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. If this is you it is very important to continue your prescribed medication and seek medical help.
To reduce your exposure, stay indoors and close the windows and doors. If you are using an air conditioner switch it to recycle or recirculate to reduce the smoke indoors.

Don’t carry last years baggage into the new year 🛍
With the new year in full swing it’s time to declutter your bag. We’re all guilty of stowing away papers, receipts, tissues, pens, lipsticks💄But when was the last time you had a good clean out?
By going through your purse and removing non-essential items you can not only organise your bag, but also declutter your mind. So that next time you’re looking for your keys they’ll come up straight away.
Begin the new year with a fresh and organised mindset by starting with the everyday small tasks.

One of the commonest New Year’s resolution is to go on a diet. For many that triggers thoughts of starvation or eating only lettuce for a month but it shouldn’t have to be!
Eating healthy is simple, for example why not grill meat instead of frying. Swap that mid morning biscuit with a piece of fruit. Keep hydrated with water rather than soda and swap that cheese toastie with a fresh nutritious salad 🥗
With such small and simple changes, eating healthy will be easy and fun and most importantly rewarding for your health.
