With winter approaching, the skies are darkening earlier and earlier. Now is a perfect time to grab a book and enjoy the health benefits of reading as well as the feel-good vibes. Reading has been proven to reduce stress, improve memory and also improve focus and concentration. While e-books and online articles are great for portability and ease of use, there is nothing better than the smell of a new book. Studies also show that turning a physical page can also lead to better understanding and memory of the page you just read, as it serves as a contextual focus point for your brain.
So in line with our offline focus from last couple of blogs, why not have a ‘stay-cation’ over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and curl up with a new book – open fireplace optional?
Long weekends are a great opportunity to relax and rejuvenate throughout the year. They also improve productivity at work, so now you can enjoy them even more! This list is a great place to start dreaming of your ultimate long weekend getaway, but sometimes taking the time to relax and enjoy your local treats can be just as rewarding. We have some starting points for our consultants in Victoria, NSW, ACT and QLD to kick off the brainstorming. Do you have any local recommendations? I know Hobart is a great place to have a mini ‘overseas’ break to soak up some culture, shopping and amazing views.
