This year I’m continuing to improve my skin cancer knowledge by completing certificates from the Australasian College of Dermatologists.
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.
Of course prevention is the best cure, so don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher.
Whether we aspire to hold a kingdom or seek adventure and thrills in life, we all have choices that contribute to how our lives pan out.
By realising the power of decision making we can sculpt our outlook, making us more organised and goal orientated. As an example, earlier this year I chose to work on my passion of delivering educational and interesting videos to a wider community on YouTube. I set aside one day a week for filming and editing and have managed to grow my channel 6 fold with viewers from around the world. Although our choices in life may take perseverance and hard work, it’s important not to give up. 💪
It’s official, research has shown that taking a selfie can have a positive impact on our mental health. It allows us to self reflect and recognise ourselves as well as being able to feel more confident and comfortable in our own skin. I had a great time getting my selfie dose with the lovely Shamilla our local pharmacist and medical student 💖
Remember, always selfie in moderation as too much of anything can be bad.
