My guests today are Sarah Carman from Sponge Education, a tutor and mentor for young people going through HSC and their parents and Jason Prior from Turramurra Chiropractic who is also a presenter on Body Brain and Mind on Tuesdays on TripleHfm as well as a trained nurse. As it is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week we spoke about the connection of self care in the body and its effect on the mind. The correlation of mental and physical stress and stress and physical ill-health. We cover HSC stress as well as life skills around anxiety and how to build a way of living that supports you when you most need it. We also talk about Supermoons and their affect on our bodies.
Our Atar score does not define you and
there are other ways to get into the courses you want to do
check out what Sarah has to say about studying medicine - it is very inspiring.
The statistics for mens' mental health is very serious, and something we must speak about honestly about why we have a culture that does not encourage men to talk about their feelings. When we look at the statistics for male mental health and suicide against the percentage who access support the statistics clearly skew the wrong way with an appealingly high suicide rate and concerningly low number engaging with support for depression and other poor mental health conditions
Jason has found the focus is predominantly outward and on achieving and doing. The outward focus pays, looking inward we can challenge but Jason is a big fan of the benefits of looking inward paying dividends in physical and mental health and its' onward affect on productivity.
When our body is under great stress such as in extreme health situations such as palliative care a great honesty comes in about what is important in life.
The shift to choose change is the stop needed to break the cycle.
Is your level of normal truly normal or are you living with a level on anxiety
