Top tips to stay sane during lockdown from our Team

We often chat virtually and sometimes even in person here at Scarborough about the things that bring joy into our lives while we are in lockdown. Sometimes these are just small things that we do once in a while, others are new routines that we’ve put in place to help get a little balance or a little bit of a treat – either way, this is what some of our staff are doing to fill those hours of lockdown. We've also included a list of our favourite podcasts if you're looking for some Podcast inspo 

Sally Scarborough: I have my lockdown tips clearly split into 2 categories; keeping sane and treating myself because life is all about balance…

  • Morning stretches: This is just about 10 mins of stretches I do before anything else
  • As much sleep as possible: Lets face it there is no FOMO going on at the moment so why not take yourself off to bed earlier than you normally would
  • Fire-pits and FaceTime: Weather permitting I light up the firepit on Friday and Saturday nights and call and FaceTime family and friends
  • All Day breakfast: I can’t tell you enough how much joy this brings our house; we don’t do it every weekend but when we do it is the best and in the wise words of the amazing Leslie Knope (Parks & Recreation) “Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?”

Podcast tips: 

The Fader Uncovered with Mark Ronson: The FADER Uncovered is a series of in-depth conversations with the world’s most impactful musicians

You're wrong about: Mike and Sarah are journalists obsessed with the past. Every week they reconsider an event, person or phenomenon that’s been miscast in the public imagination.

Everybody Knows: A five-part investigative series examining the rise and fall of the MeToo movement in Australia, and what it will take for things to finally change.
