Fun things to do at home
As lockdown continues for greater Melbourne, a lot of us are preparing for another weekend at home.
But even if your weekend plans have fallen through, doesn't mean you can't have a good time.
We've lined up a bunch of online activities and resources you can check out so you're not destined for a monotonous weekend binge-fest on the couch...Unless that's what you're looking forward to - in which case, we have something for that, too!
Lockdown can be a stressful time for some, so make sure you're doing what you can to look after yourself.
Go outside for a walk or maybe give meditation a try.
Wellbeing Victoria has a huge catalogue of helpful videos that will help you take a breath, and destress.
If the gym is your second home, you might be wondering what you can do over the next little while to get the gains in.
While we are permitted to exercise outside for 2 hours with one other person, we have some home workouts you can do to work up a sweat.
If you're looking for something that's not so high-intensity, we have plenty of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga resources for you to try to find your calm.
