Poor Sleep as bad as Smoking

Posted on 26th February, 2016 | Comments Off on Poor Sleep as bad as Smoking

We all know that when we haven’t slept enough the night before, the following day is going to be a painful one. But clearly, that’s not where it ends. “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” is all very well, but the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) is telling us that if we don’t start taking sleep seriously, we will be. Resisting healthy sleep has become our daily norm. We are woken not by the sun at the time that suits our own rhythm, but by the alarm clock. Coffee and Tea jolts us into action. Electronic devices, deadlines and artificial light prevents...

Beware of the quick fix…

Posted on 11th December, 2015 | Comments Off on Beware of the quick fix…

As more and more Australians grapple with weight problems and obesity, the number of weight loss products on the shelves of supermarkets, pharmacies and gyms grows accordingly. These products have very tempting claims, that indicate the user will strip fat almost effortlessly, and in a very short time. But do they work and if so, what is the ingredient that produces this effect? Many do work to produce results quickly but they contain caffeinated ingredients such as Guarana, Green Tea and Citrus aurantium. Which can be an issue for caffeine sensitive people, causing sleeplessness and...

Don’t skip Brekkie!

Posted on 16th October, 2015 | Comments Off on Don’t skip Brekkie!

It’s an unfortunate fact that many people eat a poor quality Breakfast or skip it entirely. This is a bad idea, because the purpose of breakfast is to get a good energy intake, so you can enjoy a High Energy day. It’s no mistake that the word means what it says – break the fast. Skipping Breakfast usually means poor energy around 3pm and making poor food choices to fill the energy hole. If you aren’t hungry in the morning, try some lemon juice in water to get your digestion moving and some fruit later. As you get used to having something in the morning, try small...

As we end Mental Health Week, I can’t help but reflect on the many causes of mental illness; and wonder if we understood biology a little better whether we could improve our stress experience. In this blog I outline our natural, instinctive and biological action to triggers in our life and invite you to reflect on how you might be able to support your mental health more proactively. It’s a big topic, I’m only offering a little insight but it may pique your interest to learn more. Hormones and Neurotransmitters made within us provide the foundations for life. They exist for...

Are you at risk of Burnout?

Posted on 3rd September, 2015 | Comments Off on Are you at risk of Burnout?

Burnout occurs when passionate, committed people become deeply disillusioned with the life or career from which they had previously derived much of their identity and meaning. It comes as the things that inspire passion, energy and enthusiasm are stripped away, and feelings of dread, irritation and dissatisfaction crowds in. Rate the following questions as Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Often, Very Often. 1. I feel run down and drained of physical or emotional energy. 2. I have negative thoughts about my life. 3. I am harder and less sympathetic with people than perhaps they deserve. 4....
