Social Media is everywhere nowadays. 📱 Facebook only has billions of users all across the globe. At first glance, using social media can seem harmless. After all, it allows you to connect to people who might not live in the same place as you, to share and discuss the things you're passionate about, and to discover new people, ideas, or brands.

There's a catch though. On social media, we all tend to show the best part of ourselves, the most glamorous sides of our lives: the travels, the gifts, the days in which we looked our best, the house we own, the wonderful spouse we have. When seeing this on other people's profiles, we start questioning ourselves. It can be easy to feel as if we're the ones left behind, who are not on the same track with people our age, who are definitely doing something wrong. This is the trap you can fall into when using social media (too much).

The good news? There are ways to counteract this. Here's 6 tips on how to use your favourite social media channel in a positive way: 👇

For a little giggle... Go on... try it without laughing!!!

When you're about to step into new territory, be it a new job, a new social circle, or maybe a new place, you can feel overwhelmed with worries. What if things don't go as you want them to? What if you fail? What if something happens and you won't be able to react properly? What will other people think of you?

↪ What might be helpful to do is to take a step back and breathe. Think about what you've achieved so far. Think about all the other situations you've dealt with wonderfully. Think about all the problems, challenges, obstacles that you've managed to overcome. You are here, you made it. Trust yourself - you will make it this time, too. 💪

There's an old Latin phrase which says "Mens sana in corpore sano", meaning: "Healthy mind in a healthy body". So even two thousand years ago, men were acknowledging the importance of physical exercise on mental health and general wellbeing. 💪

Today more and more people are starting to adopt a healthier lifestyle, by incorporating whole foods into their diets 🥗 and by developing and maintaining a proper exercise routine 🏃‍♂️. However, many of these people are doing it for the sake of weight loss or for building a more attractive physique. But the truth is that physical exercise has benefits that go beyond having a nice body. From fighting inflammation to boosting focus and memory, coming up with a routine that works for you can work wonders for your life and wellbeing.

If you are an athlete or someone who has to perform, you know that there is nothing more crippling than performance anxiety. 😔 You often worry that you aren't good enough, despite investing so much time and energy into it. You can't help but look at others in your field and find them better prepared and more capable of delivering good results. Your coach tries to encourage you and make you believe that you can do it - but sometimes it's hard to believe that.

Performance anxiety can have a negative impact not only on your craft but on your mental health. And in the long run, this can be incredibly damaging to your wellbeing. The best thing to do is to try to talk about your fears and worries with someone else, someone who would listen and would be able to provide you with advice. A counsellor could be a great idea.

I am here to help people overcome their fears and find ways to develop their self-confidence. Each session will give you tools that you can work with in order to become more resilient and a more confident version of yourself.

Allowing your thoughts to just be, to just float by, without engaging is a mindfulness practice that can reduce distressing responses. ・・・

Just a little reminder at the end of the day.
It was a little like this in many places in Melbourne today... so much rain☔️ ... so welcome given the fires that have been burning. 🤞the rain falls in areas affected.

BUSHFIRE RECOVERY
The government is acknowledging and responding to the need that many will have for support after the recent, and still current, bushfires. They have put the Bushfire Recovery Access Program; it allows for those experiencing an adverse change to their mental health as a result of the fires.
This Infographic outlines the main differences between this program and the Better Access program that we are more familiar with. 🙏📞
Please contact the practice if you would like to discuss your eligibility. Enhance Life Psychology is able to offer a series of 6 bulk billed consultations to a limited number of people looking for support. 🖥
Video consultations will be available to those living in applicable rural areas. Face-to-face sessions are available in Prahran.

The latest episode of my podcast has been posted.
I’ve spoken about finding to exercise in an already busy schedule.
Search for Enhance Your Life with Nonie Carr on Anchor.fm, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever your listen to podcasts. ✳️This was NOT today! Once again Melbourne is blanketed with smoke from the bushfires and exercising outside has been strongly advised against... it’s been likened to smoking a pack of cigarettes 😖 and it’s even been advised to wear appropriate masks to protect your lungs! 😷
...

This is a 3D visualisation of where the bushfires 🔥have affected Australia between 5 December 2019 & 5 January 2020. It was made using data from NASA's satellites by @anthony_hearsey. There are parts of Australia that have been burning for 4 months. Bushfires are not uncommon in Australian summers BUT... this is something quite different; there is no precedent for the devastation these fires are wreaking.
It might be drizzling in the south east at the moment... but it’s nowhere near enough and it appears there is unlikely to be any rain in the next few weeks. Melbourne is shrouded in smoke today🌫 and, though I have only mild asthma, I am finding it difficult to breathe. There have been many reports about the area that is affected and just how vast it is. There have been many reports about the wildlife and natural habitat lost... some areas might not recover for hundreds of years. 😢it is possible these fires will continue for a long time.
There are many communities and groups needing assistance. If you would like to donate here is a list of those who would gratefully accept whatever you’d like to give:
@redcrossau
@nswrfs
@wireswildliferescue
@foodbankaus
@awdri_
@portmacquariekoalahospital
Koalas In Care

I’m sure there are many more registered groups who are able to take donations, but please check that you are giving to a registered group before giving... there are a number of scams around at the moment.
