Well done Queensland – you’re flattening the curve! We’ve been filled with hope and optimism as we watch the Queensland Premier’s latest updates on minimal new cases in our sunny state of Queensland. Thanks to everyone doing the right thing – staying home as much as possible and practising social distancing restrictions – together we’re reducing the spread of coronavirus. We’re hopeful restrictions will be eased in the near future and we look forward to domestic travel restrictions easing so we can welcome you all back to beautiful Noosa!
While we are all slowing down the pace with reduced social interactions and less travel, it’s important that we continue to look after our wellbeing and maintain strong immune systems. We’ve put together some of the ways we’re staying well while staying in, in the hope it will inspire our guests, permanent residents and friends to do the same. Healthy bodies provide stronger responses to any infections we may pick up.
We hope you are staying well and keeping positive. Please continue to follow us on social media (Facebook and Instagram) as we continue to share our updates and inspiration from our Noosa community. We would love to stay in touch with you and hear how you are doing, wherever you live.
At-home exercise classes
Whether you’re in-room in one of our Coco Bay Villas or in the comfort of your own home, many local exercise studios have quickly responded by offering virtual classes. Staying healthy and active while we’re in self-isolation is more important now than ever before to maintain strong immunity, healthy bodies and healthy minds. Here are some of Noosa’s local studios we’re loving: Downward Dog Hot Yoga, Noosa Flow Pilates, Aloha Active.
Support your local businesses by subscribing to a virtual exercise class and have fun with it!
Explore nature trails
One of simplest ways to stay positive and look after your mental health is from exercising in nature. If you’re lucky enough to be isolating in Noosa, there are several national park trails you can explore while practicing safe social distancing. While some of the main public beach accesses and carparks are closed, a few of the interior walking tracks at the Noosa National Park remain open. Why not explore Noosa’s surrounding walking trails, like the Eumundi Conservation Park (off Noosa Eumundi Road) and the Tewantin National Park (off Noosa Cooroy Road). If you’ve not had the time before, now is a good opportunity to start bushwalking and try a trail you’ve never walked before. Visit the Tourism Noosa website for an updated list of open walking trails available to explore.
Feed your body well
It’s no secret we all love Noosa for its world-class dining and locally sourced produce. Just because our restaurants and cafes are closed for dine-in, it doesn’t mean we have to stop enjoying superb, fabulous tasting food! If you’re into cooking (and our Villas are fully equipped for you to do so), you can still shop for fresh produce at the Noosa Farmers Market on Sunday mornings and Tewantin Market Garden is open in-store and online with local delivery. Tourism Noosa has also curated a list of some of the local restaurants, bars, cafes and breweries supporting social distancing in true Noosa style, with amazing takeaway options.
Good news for self-isolation
While news and media sites are occupied with coronavirus updates, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, saddened and anxious about the impacts of Covid-19 around the world. While it’s important to stay updated and informed, too much consumption of negative news can weigh heavily on us. Laughter and consuming uplifting content are good for the mind – and good for your immunity. We like to keep a positive mindset by seeking out good news from around the world to counteract the negative, like good news from The New Daily, 9News, and the Good News Network.
Virtual Aquarium with Sea Life
It’s only fitting that as we live by the sea, we share with you an awesome initiative by Sea Life Sunshine Coast. They have created a Virtual Aquarium program offering behind-the-class peeks and educational live streams for kids to enjoy talks with their aquarist team on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am. Perfect for home school activities! They even have a Yoga Under the Sea class!
We hope these wellness tips will help you and your families to stay well while staying in.
We miss having our resort full of families and guests and we can’t wait to welcome you all here again post-coronavirus. Take care and we will see you soon.
