Live and Learn back in Bunbury

By Kevin Kelly

The Live and Learn series around Bunbury attracted attention last year for its life skills teaching and informative seminars, and now it's back for 2016.

With the sun beating down strongly all through the summer, learning how to avoid the risk of cancer is a significant step towards being healthy. February in particular has an average maximum temperature of 30.1 degrees Celsius according to the Bureau of Meteorology, so taking precautions are important. The attraction to real estate in Bunbury East could well improve if more people helped each other to live healthier lifestyles.

Live and Learn

The Cancer Council of Western Australia will hold the talk in the Bunbury library on Thursday, 18 February at 5 p.m.

Discussing lifestyle choices around smoking, eating well, keeping fit and protecting yourself from the sun, the seminar will focus on how a healthy lifestyle can prevent a third of all cancers. Previous topics have included writing a solid resume, sleep solutions for the whole family, colouring sessions for mindfulness and family estates and wills.

"We have had a great response to past sessions and spots have filled up fast because of the topics, knowledgeable speakers and relevant information," said Sharon Chapman, the City of Bunbury library services manager.

How could this talk benefit me?

Cancer in Australia is a big threat, and three out of every ten people that lose their lives can blame cancer according to Cancer Council Western Australia.

In 2013, more than 6,000 men in Western Australia were diagnosed with some form of cancer, and more than 5,000 women added to that tally. It is a major concern for residents of Western Australia, and being smart about the risks that the illness is caused by can help to make the community of Bunbury a safer place.

The community spirit in Bunbury looks to be on the rise with some cool new art projects taking shape around the city, and getting involved in the Live and Learn series could well be beneficial for your health.
