Camping does not mean "roughing it"

Camping in the great outdoors can beat a stay in a hotel. Front-country camping, also known as car camping, means driving to a campground and pulling up to a designated campsite, often not far from home.

Sleep Procrastination

Though it sounds confusing, sleep procrastination is when we deliberately delay our sleep. It could be to catch another episode of the show we are watching, or scroll through social media, lying on the bed.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

BDD is a mental disorder where a person is preoccupied with an imagined or minor physical defect that others often cannot see.

As a result, people with BDD see themselves as "ugly" and often avoid social exposure. The preoccupation with the defect often leads to ritualistic behaviours, such as always looking in a mirror or picking at the skin. The person with BDD eventually becomes overly obsessed with the defect so that their social, work, and home functioning suffers.

Working From The Bedroom

Many of us are working from home, with our bedroom doing double duty as our office cabin. There is less exposure to daylight as we stay indoors more, mainly due to lack of a commute, resulting in our body clocks not syncing properly with the time of day.

Keeping a food diary

A food diary is a useful tool to help people improve their health. It can help you understand your eating habits and help you identify what foods you eat regularly.
