This week we gawked at stunning dresses, embrace loved ones and cheered for a role model. Take a look at the lesson's learned:Don’t underestimate your clothes.
It’s award season so with it comes red carpet spying! We’ve loved checking out the sartorial eye candy of the past weeks from the People's Choice Awards
, the Golden Globes
, the SAGS
to the AACTAS awards
on Wednesday night. Seeing the celebs in their stunning gowns reminds us that dressing up and feeling beautiful is a wonderful way to boost your self-esteem and confidence.
Famed author Charles Dickens said “Any man may be in good spirits and good temper when he's well dressed.” So why not pop of your favourite top this weekend or try a new shade of lipstick, you’ll be surprised just how much it will lift your mood. Work your mind.
This week we’ve found a reason to make you go to those lunch yoga classes
. The practise has incredible benefits for our mental health. Studies suggest that yoga influences chemical messengers in the brain in much the same way antidepressants and psychotherapy do. So, that aura we all recognise radiating from yogis around the world isn’t just a healthy glow, it’s a happy glow. All you need is love.
In the lead up to Valentine’s Day (check out our gift guide here
) we’re feeling all warm and fuzzy inside! Especially the fact that being in love can actually be very good for your health
. Having someone to confide in can help reduce stress, embracing someone you care about can lower anxiety and boost memory while a bit of bedroom tango can improve your immune system and help fight off germs. All the more reason to find a Valentine this February 14th. It’s okay to take a different path.
Whether it’s in your career or in life in general – trying new things and changing your mind is normal and a great way to learn and grow. This week we looked at the CVs of some A-listers
to show that while changing professions can be a daunting prospect it can also lead to your dream career. So remember: don’t be afraid to walk a new road. Find a positive role model.
This week Fiona MacDonald looked at women in sport and why women’s achievements always come second to men’s. In the blog post
she spoke about Ellyse Perry, who madison
featured in our list of Australia’s Most Inspiring Women last year. Perry represents Australia in both cricket and soccer and has stuck to her guns and continued playing both, even though teams have tried to force her to choose. She’s also managed to earn several sponsorship deals thanks to the extra media attention she’s earned.
Now that’s inspiring.
