Wishing You a Merry and Healthy Christmas, Pod Fam!

As we gear up for the festive season, it's a time for joy, celebration, and spending quality moments with our loved ones. This year, let's make it extra special by ensuring our health and well-being take centre stage. Here in Geelong & the Surfcoast, amidst the sunny summer, there are incredible ways to embrace the holiday spirit (give ourselves some space 🤫 ) while keeping our health in check.


Soaking Up the Sun Safely

With the sun shining bright during the summer, it's essential to enjoy the outdoors and get your vitamin ‘sea’. Remember to apply natural sunscreen generously and don a hat to shield yourself from those intense rays. Whether you're having a beach picnic at Eastern Beach or enjoying the magic of Barwon Heads River, staying sun-safe is key to savouring the season without the risk of sunburn.


Embrace Active Celebrations

The holiday season doesn't mean putting our fitness routines on hold. In fact, it's a great time to embrace active celebrations. From family walks along the beach in Torquay to trying out water sports at the Waterfront, our area offers a plethora of outdoor activities that combine fun with fitness. Get moving and make the most of this vibrant season while keeping your body active and energised.


Nourish with Seasonal Delights

Indulging in festive feasts is part of the holiday tradition, and our local markets overflow with seasonal produce. Load up on fresh fruits, veggies, and vibrant salads from a local Farmers Market or explore the offerings at the NightJar Market for a taste of diverse cuisines. Opt for lighter, colourful meals that incorporate the summer bounty while balancing the occasional holiday treat.


Mindfulness Amidst the Festivities

Amidst the hustle and bustle, take moments for yourself to unwind and practice mindfulness. Whether it's through meditation at the beach or finding serenity in the tranquility of a local park; prioritising mental health is crucial during this bustling season. Take deep breaths, enjoy the beauty around you, and cherish the peaceful moments to rejuvenate your mind and spirit.


Connect and Give Back

The holiday season is about giving, gratitude, and fostering connections. Take the time to connect with your community by volunteering, supporting local initiatives, or simply reaching out to neighbours and friends. Sharing joy and spreading kindness not only elevates the festive spirit but also contributes to our overall well-being.


This Christmas and New Year, let's celebrate our community's health and happiness. May the warmth of the season fill your hearts with joy and may the new year bring prosperity and good health to each and every one of you.


From The Pod Team, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
