My late night snack time!! Being healthy with broccoli, eggplant hummus with crackers and healthy zero calory jelly lol it's the best when it's tasty but still healthy 😊 #jelly #latenightsnack #snack #snacktime #studyfood #broccoli #hummus #hummuslover #dips
Picking mulberries fresh from the bush by the hospital πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚ I'm too much of a clean freak to eat it there but my friends seem to enjoy them lol #mulberry #berries #wildberry #freshfrombush #mulberrybush #snackafterwardrounds #surgery #generalsurgery #medstudent #feedingtime #nomnom #med #medlife #medicine #futuredr #study #stethoscope #womeninmedicine
I've been in a bit of a funk the past few days 😞 was starting to burn out, worry about the future, if I can be a good doctor etc.. so much so that it was starting to affect my physical health.. so I decided to take a few days off study and had a cry sesh πŸ˜­πŸ˜… and I feel much better now 😊 I re-realised I'm studying for myself and not to please anyone else and it's ok to feel lost every now and then. It's ok to take breaks 😊 don't beat yourself up for not being perfect all the time. now I'm ready to tackle the last month of study for this year. .
crying is such a strong tool to control your emotions and moods . Never feel too embarrassed to cry! It's healthy to cry and I'd recommend having a playlist with songs you can cry to immediately or a movie for example :) sorry for the long post! #itsoktocry #crying #tears #emotions #moodcontrol #med #medstress #medicine #medicalschool #behappy #crytobehappy #womeninmedicine #mentalhealthbreak #medicalstudent #unilifeproblems #stress #stethoscope #howtorelax #howtodealwithstress

Learnt how to scrub in today πŸ˜ƒ learnt the usual clorhexidine 5 min surgical scrub but also learnt that there is an alcohol surgical scrub that only takes 90 seconds! And it can be used as an alternative to the traditional method. So much better for ppl with sensitive skin like me πŸ˜„ #surgery #surgicalscrubs #handwash #gloves #clorhexidene #antiseptic #sterile #scrubin #med #medicine #medstudent #medicalschool #futuredr #theatre #bacteria #stethoscope #peace

Shopped for a few skin products the other day πŸ˜€ I found out my go to brand @dermaveentw had a lot more products than I knew about so decided to buy a few!! Sunscreen with moisturiser for the strong sun in Australia and intense moisturising serum to prevent wrinkles lol I've also featured some of the creams I use daily for my eczema. Do you guys use any of these?? #dermatology #med #skincare #skinproducts #creams #moisturizer #eczema #rash #dermaveen #davidcraig #haul
