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.

Skin cancer will affect 2 in 3 Australians at some point in their lives so it is important to have your skin checked regularly. If you notice any new or changing moles, for example a change in size, shape, colour or whether they are itchy or bleeding, be sure to book in for a full skin check.
