A place to learn and play

Keep your kids occupied

Creating the right environment to work from home will help keep you focussed With the kids cooped up at home, as parents we’re adding even more to their to do list. As well as working, parenting and housekeeping, we’re now also teaching young kids from home and giving older kids the right environment to learn. And, let’s be real – no matter how hard you try, extra screen time is going to be on the rise. The good news is, there’s plenty of creative ways to keep them educated, engaged and entertained, both onscreen and off.

A favourite device-based game among schools, kids and parents alike is Osmo, a clever, hands-on learning game system. It’s designed for ages 5 to 9, and while it does require a screen (it’s compatible with iPad, iPhone and Fire Tablet), it gives kids an inspiring new way to learn and practice maths, puzzles, spelling, drawing, coding and more. If you’re concerned about how much time they’re spending on screens, try and schedule that screen time when you’re in a video meeting.

And when you’ve signed off from work for the day, don’t forget the power of back-to-basics family time. A board game, playing in a cubby house (ready-built or make-shift), a card game, cooking meals together – all these experiences are where kids learn from us as parents how to work well with others, how to create and how to enjoy the little moments. It all adds up!

A place for mind and body

Wellness space

Creating the right environment to work from home will help keep you focussed Looking after our health and wellbeing is essential to keeping us feeling and fighting fit, both physically and mentally. And now more than ever, exercising on a daily basis is so important in releasing those feel-good endorphins that help us to reduce stress and feel strong.

Keeping active is key; find something that you enjoy and try to incorporate it in your everyday life. Start with incidental workouts such as walking, playing with your children or gardening. Gradually build in other workouts such as squats, lunging or push-ups. You can even create your own home gym with free weight, medicine ball or kettle bells — the choice is yours.

Remember to stay hydrated, positive and keep moving!
