Aperol Spritz

Feel-Good Friday: September 2 – Spring into Action

Chuck on some Rebecca Black because “it’s Friday, Friday gotta get down on Friday.” Seriously though, she makes a great point in the iconic song’s following line: “Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend”. Haters mocked that track in 2011, but anyone with taste knows it’s a certified banger with lyrics that hold up over a decade later. 170 million views on Youtube, just saying…  Speaking of bangers, this week’s Feel-Good Friday is packed with positivity so strap in and check out all that’s on offer.

Aussies Lace Up to Fight Mental Health Crisis

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, one in eight men will experience depression and one in five men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives. Even more staggering, men make up an average of seven out of every nine suicides in Australia every single day. Prominent athletes Australian boxer Jeff Horn and ex-Brisbane Broncos player Darius Boyd are tackling this issue head-on, throwing their weight behind the worthy cause as ambassadors for Mental Awareness Foundation’s Walk for Awareness. 

Held on Sunday, 9th October, Walk for Awareness marks the beginning of Queensland Mental Health Week (8-16 October 2022) as the first major event, where participants can attend the physical walk or register to “walk anywhere”, attending virtually from their own neighbourhood. To find out how you can participate, head to the Walk for Awareness website.
