Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! It’s tough getting up in the morning, especially when you’re one super-comfy koala!
Smiling Bear is particularly partial to a mug of that classic hot beverage, coffee. However, his brand of choice is a little more potent in the kickstarting department. Called Koffee with a K, one cup of this and there’s no turning back (especially back to bed)!
Disclaimer: Whilst there’s no actual recommended age to start drinking coffee, please be sensible. 18 or over seems like a good idea. Besides, until then you can use the equally effective cold shower or ice bath!

A flower is a smile from nature. Given as a gift, flowers are the perfect way to express happiness, love and friendship.
Their natural beauty and fragrance are uplifting, and their positive effect on people continues long after they’ve been received. Even just the simple act of giving them, makes you feel good.
Send them to someone special today, and bring your relationship into full bloom.

Is there something you’d like to change about your life? Something you really want to do or achieve but aren’t sure how to begin?
Then start thinking about the steps you need to take to make it happen.
Plant some small seeds in your life, as small seeds can grow ginormous!

Continuing on from last weeks... Sauce Selection
Little known fact about koalas, they love ketchup, and not just at a BBQ either. Eucalyptus leaves can get awfully boring, so a little squeeze of Tommy K works wonders!

When you’re putting together your plate full of food at the BBQ, whatever you do, don’t forget the sauce selection.
Whether it’s a juicy steak, greasy hotdog or even a belly busting bean burger, it stills needs that little extra something. Barbecue, ketchup, mayo or mustard…hmmm, which sauce would you select?

Contrary to popular belief, image really isn’t everything. That said, it doesn’t hurt to take a bit of time getting ready each morning.
We’re not talking the kind of prep you’d do for your first music video here, but at the same time you don’t want to look as though you've slept outdoors for the last 3 nights.
It’s about looking your personal best, and appropriate for whatever it is you’re about to go off and do (and if that’s gaming on the sofa alone, then yes, your koala onesie is perfect).
So try and make just a little effort with your appearance, you’ll be amazed at how you look and feel more confident. Just watch out for those loose threads!

Some people think baking is a waste of time. We’re all so busy and can pick up any imaginable baked goods at the store anyway, so why bother? Well, I’m glad you asked.
Baking is simple, it’s all about creating something from nothing. You’re bombarded with great smells, textures and tastes. You accomplish something that’s incredibly fulfilling, baking makes you happy.
What better way to show appreciation to family and friends, than...with smile snacks! So, get on that baking buzz and start creating.
Oh, and here’s a little tip for when the baking is finished…get someone else to do the washing up :-)

We all waste time worrying about things that might never happen. Those nagging ‘what if’ fears that creep into our thoughts, "What if this happens?", or “What if that happens?” These thoughts can really stress you out.
The thing is though, what if ‘it’ doesn’t happen? Now, you’ve wasted all that precious time worrying about nothing, when you could have been living carefree and easy!
So next time you’re worried about something, instead of thinking ‘what if’, flip things around in your favour and ask yourself, “What if it doesn’t happen?”
Don’t worry, it’ll be ok.

There’s nothing better than a nice, long sleep. Perhaps not a koala-worthy snooze of 22 hours, but long enough so that you wake up naturally, without an alarm.
Is there really anything you can do to be happy in your sleep? Well, it turns out there is. The most important thing is to be careful about what you’re thinking, just as you go off to sleep. Think relaxing, uplifting thoughts, while being as calm as possible.
Whatever you do, don’t think about bad things, like the exam you’ve got tomorrow, or that time you made a fool of yourself in front of your friends. Keep it nice and positive.
And, just in case you do have a nightmare and wake up, keep your favourite teddy nearby for a quick snuggle. Smile more in your sleep, for some really sweet dreams!

Smiling Bear wanted to see if he would pass the "finger trap” beauty test. Of course he did!
