This Week on Destination Happiness..
Lou Brown – ADHD Coach
Whilst going through the process of her son Jack being diagnosed with ADHD, Lou Brown learnt that she too experienced Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder as an adult. It was at that point that Lou wanted to learn as much as she could about ADHD.
Some people with ADHD may seem defiant or disengaged, when in fact it is likely that they’re just fully absorbed in what they’re doing.
Tune in this Saturday at 12pm on Channel 9 to learn more.
ADHD can negatively impact on people’s learning, well being and relationships. However, those with ADHD will often have other strengths such as being more creative or intuitive that they can harness in other ways. Diagnoses such as ADHD or Autism are neither advantages or disadvantages in life, they simply indicate that someone’s brain just works differently.
Random Acts of Happiness
This week, thanks to Morris Finance, we meet Jodie Whittaker. Jodie’s attitude is inspiring, after recently making the courageous decision to amputate her leg after many years of on-going injuries following a car accident in 1998.
Jodie’s unexpected surprise is a makeover by Destination Happiness’s stylist Adamo di Biasi and a clothes styling session (including a special outfit to return to work in) from The Ark Clothing Company.
The Ark is an Australian made, ethically accredited clothing company who specialise in personalised service and quality fashion for all shapes and ages.
Electro-magnetic radiation, or EMR, comes from devices that use electricity. It may have a negative impact on our nervous system and has been linked to head-aches, poor sleep, fatigue and anxiety. It may be worth considering turning off all devices that you’re not using overnight to avoid unnecessary contact with EMR.
Dave Sharp – Sheepdog Trainer
When you’re around Dave Sharp and his sheepdogs, it doesn’t take long for the bond they share to become obvious. With 39 different whistles at his disposal, Dave’s dogs know exactly what to do when working with sheep. They’re even able to look after the sheep by themselves if they’re in heavy bush and Dave isn’t able to keep his eyes on them at all times.
For this week’s word vitamin, Cynthia Morton talks to us about addiction. Those who have an addiction are often looking for an external distraction from the inner turmoil they are facing, however this is not healthy or sustainable longer term.
In today’s day and age, feeling like we have freedom is one of the most important factors to whether we’re able to relax. What better way to take some time off from work than with the ultimate freedom finder, a motorhome. Run your own itinerary on your own schedule and ensure that everything you do is only on the program because you chose it to be.
This week thanks to Cobram Estate, Dr Joanna McMillan brings us a delectable dinner of baked chicken legs. This recipe is super easy to make, but everyone will be impressed by the range of succulent flavours and textures. Check out our website after the show for the recipe.
My DNA was founded by Professor Les Sheffield and his son Allan Sheffield, who use a clinical knowledge of genetics to discover your genetic makeup and provide you with personalised information on how you can best stay healthy. This week Angie shares her genetic profile to help us all get an insight into how the My DNA testing can be of benefit.
