Keeping busy in isolation

| | ,

There has never been a better time to get creative and start a new project, learn something new or find new ways to hang out with friends.

Take time out to relax with a new book, do a puzzle, paint a picture or even have a virtual dinner party… The possibilities are endless!

Journal writing:

There are so many reasons to start a journal. Whether you want to write about your day or just get some thoughts down onto paper, journal writing can be extremely beneficial for our mental health. With so much going on in the world around us it can be good to express how we are feeling, even if we don’t want to say it out loud. Australia Post has a great selection of journals and diaries to choose from for you to get started. Spread the love to friends and family and post a journal to someone you love while you’re there so they get writing too.

Keep the kids entertained:

Keeping young kids entertained can be a challenge at the best of times, let alone when you can’t take them out to the park or to the beach to use up all that energy!

Head to NewsXpress and pick up a new toy or board game that will keep the little ones occupied for hours! Alternatively, create a delicious mess and get the kids in the kitchen with you to make a batch of cupcakes or cookies. Check out IGA Surfers Paradise for all your baking needs.

Have a virtual dinner party:

If you are missing spending your weekends hanging with friends, chatting over a glass of wine and a delicious meal, we’ve got you sorted! Grab ingredients for your favourite meal (or try making something new!) from Woolworths in the Paradise Centre and have a video chat with your friends while you all cook and eat dinner from the comfort of your own homes. It’ll be like you’re all there together!
