It’s fair to say that 2022 hasn’t quite been the start that everyone was hoping for. Bidding farewell to the usual start-of-year festivities and welcoming a bit of home isolation in its place, settling into the new year has been a challenge to say the least.
With dining room tables making a swift comeback as the desk of choice and ‘that one blank wall’ the new background of all zoom meetings, it’s time to once again play the game of ‘how good’s your home internet?’. While some thrive in this work from home environment, it’s natural to feel uninspired and a little out of sorts.
So, to stay motivated (and just a little more sane), here are some of our top tips for making the most of your work from home arrangements this month.
- Start your morning on the right foot! On a warm summer’s morning in Brisbane, there is no better way to kickstart your day than with a quick walk along the river and a delicious, barista-made coffee. A great way to get them endorphins pumping and creative juices flowing, we believe a walk in the fresh air can do wonders for your mental health. So, pop on that active wear, slip on your sneakers and mosey your way down to the Parklands for an energising stroll. What better motivation then a perfectly brewed caffeine hit from the master baristas at The Lost Bean to finish!
- Treat food as your fuel. We all know that diet plays a key part in our overall health and wellbeing. While it can be hard to keep on track when you’re feeling flat or run down, it is so important to fuel your body with satisfying and nutritious wholefoods. Thankfully, there are so many amazing cafes and restaurants working hard to stay open during this time, making a quick, easy and healthy takeaway lunch all the more achievable! We personally can’t go past the fresh, Vietnamese flavours of Banh Me Time. I mean who doesn’t love a veggie packed rice vermicelli bowl or some quick and easy rice paper rolls?
- Spend time outdoors! Now tell us, what could be better than a picnic dinner? With a variety of different cuisines and restaurants at your fingertips, we highly recommend ordering some takeaway, grabbing a picnic blanket and heading down into the Parklands for a spontaneous afternoon picnic. The amazing team at Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers offer some awesome takeaway dinner options and will have all your favourites ready in a flash!
