With the craziness of the holiday season upon us, here is something I've been doing nightly... My very own version of a wellness shot. This consists of freshly grated ginger, cayenne pepper 🌶, apple cider vinegar, and fresh squeezed lemon 🍋 juice. Not only do I save calories, I also avoid a hangover tomorrow and my metabolism will thank me in the morning 😉💩!! Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has many health benefits. For one it helps boost your metabolism and increase satiety which will help you eat fewer calories. This is why I like to have this wellness shot at night instead of in the morning; that way I won't snack on junk food after my dinner. ACV can also help reduce blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels! **** please note: apple cider vinegar does not and I repeat DOES NOT cause you to lose weight magically. Stop looking for shortcuts. If you want to lose weight, you need to cut the calories, eat clean, and exercise regularly. Anything else, like the wellness shot, is an adjunct to the plan.**** Goodnight! 🌙 #womeninmedicine #medicine #health #womenshealth #womensrights #womenschoice #femaledoctors #femaleempowerment #sex #sexandthecity #docsandthecity #healthandhappiness #thedoctors #healthywomen #doctorlife #beauty #applecidervinegar #weightloss #wellnessjourney #wellnessshot #wellnessshots #tacotuesday #tequilashots #tequilatuesday

Going to be posting some old tributes from previous staff members from the 1980s/90s: “The best thing about Toora for me is also the hardest. It’s about being challenged about the kind of person I am and how I live my life. At Toora, it is something I am expected to focus on. In other places I have worked that wasn’t really a relevant consideration. The only thing that mattered is how well I did my job. That’s obviously also really important at Toora, but so is the other bit. To a significant extent, working at Toora is a way of life, not just a job. That makes Toora harder than most other workplaces, but also far more rewarding..”
So much gratitude to @canberraquilters
for donating these gorgeous handmade quilts! A generous donation that kept our clients warm last winter. 💙💜❤️💛💚
The sun has been shining non-stop this month and is perfect for a stroll and stretch along the shores of Lake Ginninderra! This group of wonderful women and children walked to Western Foreshore to continue the day with a picnic and play in the park. Thank you to all involved in organising a social outdoor activity which can always brighten our day!
Wrapping up National Recycling Week with a series of 'crafternoons' creating a collection of colourful masks during our day program. Our incredible team is constantly cultivating activities that allow women to grow and strengthen their sense of self and identity.🎭
Today marks International Day for Tolerance.
With safety, respect and support being at the core of this day, it reminds everyone to show understanding towards one another in the workplace, at home, and in public, irrespective of one's cultures, beliefs, and traditions.
At Toora Women, we emphasise the importance of our workers as peer mentors creating a sense of community, and shaping our treatment models to target care for each of the women who reach out to us.
Above is one of many tributes from previous staff (from 1980's) giving insight into the culture of our organisation. 💙
