I hope you’ve had a great week, we’ve had some unusual weather here in my little corner of eastern Australia which has meant it’s been several days of quite cold temperatures (it’s late Spring here and by now it’s usually a lot warmer), but it seems to have turned a corner today and the sun is shining which means I am smiling!
So… greetings and salutations, and a warm welcome to another newsletter. I hope you enjoy my quick snapshot of my favourite things this week — hopefully at least one of them will make you smile/feel inspired. Have a fantastic week and a brilliant weekend!
My favourite things this week:
1. ‘Burnout’ from @thrive [via Instagram]
Burnout can happen to anyone at any time; a few weeks ago I was on the verge of it because I was pushing myself too hard, and this post was a great reminder that you can love what you do and still be tired. Make your self care a priority every day. (PS: I’m doing better now!)
2. ‘The mood pyramid’ from @lizandmollie [via Instagram]
Love this reinterpretation of the food pyramid into the mood pyramid: one serve of fun per day, a few servings of meaningful projects, several servings of some form of movement, many servings of time with loved ones and sunlight, and as much time to recharge as is needed. Love it!
3. ‘Understanding’ from @tinybuddhaofficial [via Instagram]
“It’s easy to judge. It’s more difficult to understand.”
And one more… this post by @eurovision made me very happy today; it has been well-documented how obsessed I am with the annual Eurovision Song Contest and we have reached the mid-way point in the year which is halfway between the 2021 contest and the 2022 one (just 178 days to go!). The idea of celebrating the Eurovision Equinox (their words, not mine) had never occurred to me; now, it’s the holiday I cannot live without. Happy Eurovision Equinox! (BTW, if you haven’t seen it yet I did a YouTube video months ago on the best mental health lessons we can take from Eurovision… yes, seriously! Watch it here)

Tip of the week for better mental health:
