Stress management

I read the link regarding the ways Social Media is negative for you Mental Health and I do have to agree. It really does have an impact on self esteem. Most things we see on social media are not real life. We think that our lives should constantly be fun, we should always be happy and look amazing. People only put the good things online, use filter for pictures and are mostly totally fake. Do not try to keep up with everyone. The best thing to do is turn off all notifications for social media and better still, delete the apps and don't bother with them.

Be fit & well for now and for 2019 Ok guys I know you do not want to hear it as we have Halloween, Firework Night and lots of other things to enjoy before the festivities begin but it is only 12 weeks today until the eve of that special day.

Is your work allowing you to look after your health?  By this I mean do you have the flexibility to take time to look after your own health? Are you running around at work and at home without checking in with your own needs? It is very important to look after yourself in order to be able to keep up with your demanding lifestyle.
