Safe isolation and homestay ideas  & Supporting local businesses

As we settle into April and with Easter just around the corner, it’s fair to say the past month has been a difficult one for a lot of individuals.

This blog may look a little different from previous ones because rather than highlighting the must-sees and do’s this month, we’re putting the focus on looking after one another. From safe isolation and homestay ideas to supporting local businesses that need it most. There has been a lot of information recently about what we can and can’t do, so we’ve compiled our top tips of what you can still do to remain busy, positive and connected!

Explore local parks and beachfront

Geelong is fortunate to be surrounded by incredible beaches and waterfronts that make the perfect backdrop for walking or getting some fresh air. If you are looking to stretch your legs, be mindful of current recommendations and stay a safe distance from other individuals who are visiting these spots also.

Keep your mind active

Whether it’s learning a language, enrolling in an online course or even taking part in brain training activities, it is important to keep your mind stimulated during isolation. You can find an abundance of courses online, both free and paid, as well as a number of apps. Alternatively, grab a copy of Sudoko and make your way through the puzzles.

Regular indoor exercise

It can be easy to lose focus and motivation during these times of uncertainty but your health should always remain a priority. Thanks to the world wide web, you can access instructional videos online from instructors all over the globe – whether it’s dancing, floor exercises, yoga or pilates, or with home equipment, it has never been more important to stay active.

Stay connected with friends and family

Make an effort to maintain ongoing communication, whether it’s a phone call, video call or social media,  it is important to check in regularly on loved ones, particularly those who are in isolation or quarantine.
