Winter has come to an end in Australia and it’s time for us to shake of that little extra layer of chubs we built up over the past few months. This week is about getting fit and active in the warmer weather and, we take a moment to stop and talk about the black dog.

Daily Themes and Creativity Prompts

MON 10 ::  ME 10:10 Today is World Mental Health Day. It’s a day to make a mental health promise.  A promise to look after your own health and wellbeing. If you know someone battling the black dog (aka mental health challenges) take an extra moment to be kind to them today. Above all, celebrate YOU and do something for your own health today.

TUE 11 :: WHITE we wish our Jewish friends an easy fast for Yom Kippur and acknowledge this important day by wearing white.

WED 12 :: HEALTHIER the past few weeks we’ve been strictly watching our food, especially our snacks as we stacked on a little layer of chubbiness over the winter months. Today, on Pet Obesity Awareness Day we want everyone to try to be healthier too!

THU 13 :: EYES blink blink, it’s World Sight Day.

FRI 14 :: MOVE! for #Walktober. With the winter months behind us, it is a great time to get outside, join up with family and friends, and go for a walk.

SAT 15 :: SWEET, just a little one. You deserve it after all that walking.

SUN 16 ::  FOOD remember to make healthier choices on World Food Day.
