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. 💖
This International Women’s Day who are you appreciating?
I am very fortunate to be surrounded by some great female mentors and colleagues at work. This is Annie, she is the head receptionist at Southport Metro Medical, a real credit to her profession offering all patients a friendly welcome. She always makes sure my clinic runs smoothly and in the midst of Chinatown she’s also a great help with translating.
Be sure to pop by and say hello 👋. Wishing you all a great day.
Summer Dreaming ☀️ With autumn settling in, long summer nights are soon to be replaced with rain and summer holiday getaways are soon to be forgotten with the cooler climates.
This can, for a number of Australians lead to a condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), whereby, some people experience symptoms of low mood, lack of energy, sleeping excessively or feeling tired all the time.
If you or someone you know are affected, help is out there in the form of light therapy, psychological therapies or in other cases medication. For more information be sure to pop by for a consult.
As a general practitioner, a lot of collaboration with other health professionals goes on behind the scenes. From speaking to the local pharmacist about which is the best medication to offer you, to speaking with hospital specialists about referrals and management plans.
Whilst it can be time consuming on a busy day, I believe it is an important part of the job to provide you with the most comprehensive medical care helping you to achieve your health goals.
