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.
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.
Unless you use it in a positive manner. It’s very easy to dwell on past experiences and ruminate about what could have or should have been done. Rather than spending your precious effort on this, use this energy to think about what you have learned and how you could overcome this in future. By doing this, not only will you learn to grow as a person but you’ll also be stronger.
Whether you’re driving a car or a boat we always need to be aware of our surroundings. The same applies for our health, there are lots of temptations around us that may lead us to make unhealthy choices. Once you can identify these, you can avoid them and progress on your health journey.
What unhealthy choices have you recently navigated away from?
It’s so easy to fall into a downward spiral of negativity which can often be hard to break. This week I challenge you to make a note of one positive thing that you’ve achieved or have done. By doing this, it allows you the chance to reflect and commend yourself on your progress giving you more encouragement to continue.
My positive achievement today was that I took a long walk, what’s yours?
