Friday night is...getting lit and Marie Kondo'ing the fridge🍷🍷
Organised fridge = organised brain
This gives me a small pleasure!! See below for REAL TALK.
Picture 3 is the usual state of our bedroom. I don't find this stuff easy. I'm such a Kondo fan because I'm gradually organising, labelling and timetabling our house and life. It frees up valuable brain space and helps manage daily stress and anxiety by making me feel on top of the little things that should just run in the background and not overtake the things that really matter.
Don't underestimate the effectiveness of visual prompts. It works for students with ASD but actually probably works for everyone. Take a lil' strain off yer brain.
And yes, yes I do have a section dedicated to bloody mary ingredients.
The fastest and convenient way to relieve stress wherever you are 💚👍 Great tip from @womenshealthnetwork! #womenshealthcare#womenshealth#stress#medicine#acupuncture#stressrelief#stressreliever#women#health#healthy#australia#coomera#queensland#wellness#wellbeing

Need serious stress relief but don't have time (or energy) for a bath or yoga class? Press your Hoku spot to feel less stressed in seconds!
1. To locate the Hoku spot, gently squeeze your thumb up against your index finger. The mound that pops up between the base of your fingers is your Hoku spot.
2. Next, pull your fingers apart to form an "L" shape between the thumb and index finger
3. Apply pressure to the Hoku spot with the thumb and index finger of your other hand, gently but deeply massaging the area for at least one minute while breathing deeply through your nose.
What is the Hoku Spot?
The Hoku point, or "LI-4", is an an acupressure point that affects the flow of energy in the body, releasing muscle tension and improving circulation.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), treatment of LI-4 has been used to improve a range of symptoms, especially in the head and neck area, including:
• Pain anywhere in the body
• Headaches and migraines
• Poor circulation
• Sinus infections
• Swelling or redness in the face or eyes
• Side effects of chemotherapy
Hello all!! I'm sorry for the absence, I had some future planning to do. And this included coming to the realisation that the job I was working in wasn't for me. So my last day was the 5th of March.
It's worked out pretty well though. As having the ability to think about things other than work, has allowed me to see that I didn't spent anywhere near enough time with my family through all the 💩 my dad was going through with treatment and hospitalisation.
I've been getting my place sorted for moving out over the last month. With all this going on it's been a bit of a hectic few weeks in all fairness so I've not had much time to get a lot done.
However, this is an update as to my progress so far. As always like and comment as much as you want!
Thanks for taking the time to read! Take it easy!!👊🏽
I'm not one to complain. I'd rather put off all my frustrastions through food than any other drug in the market. I know stress-eating is just a band-aid solution / coping mechanism to get through truck loads of work and assessments but I consider this: mental health. We'll make it through, babes! 🤪💗
I’ve had a lot going on but I wanted to pop and say that today I will post an update post & that I am SO THANKFUL for all of you who have been checking in on me! You are the best part of my day and I appreciate all of you so much. Social media has helped me find some amazing people and I am forever grateful. 🖤
Your brain 🧠 and sugar
Sugar is everywhere - glucose, sucrose, maltose, lactose, raw sugar, honey, and starch are all forms of sugar. It’s in our desserts, yogurts, fruit juices, cereals, tomato ketchup, dried fruit and cereal bars.
When you eat sugar it sends a signal to the brain’s reward system. Pleasure! Which is why we want more - it feels good! 🍩🍭🍯
However, over-activating this reward system creates cravings, loss of control and an increased tolerance to sugar. .
Sugar causes dopamine release, much like the release you get with drugs or alcohol. What’s unique about sugar is that there is no mechanism in the brain to indicate when enough is enough. Unlike eating lots of broccoli 🥦 eating lots of sugar continues to feel rewarding! .
My point is, it’s not your fault that you crave sugar!! My advice? Grow your awareness to how you behave when you have sugar. Remember the domino effect of sugar consumption and be sure to really enjoy the occasional slice of cake 🍰😉

Beautiful Future - Are you or someone you know going through exams at the moment? Or are you in that time of life where it’s about to change?
Spending time with students, has really opened my eyes to the pressure they feel to perform. What’s really come to the surface, is that so may young people are suffering mental health issues and so much of that is down to a feeling that pressure.
This results in a number of heartbreaking problems, a huge over-whelming sense of “I can’t do it”, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m bound to fail”. Our need for results, which comes from on high, may be forcing more passes, but are we failing our children in the end?
Young people need to believe in themselves, to broaden their minds, to problem solve by understanding that, there are many different roads to success. If studying for University isn’t right for you or your child, there are other ways to find your/their happiness.
These young people are our future, and if you want results we have to nurture and allow the student to grow. They need patience, kindness and a life tools, to help to expand their imagination.
There are many sign posts and paths to what you want in life, start with your feelings, listen to them, what do you like and dislike, and move one step closer every day to what you like.
