Nicole George, like many others, is working from home in the South Burnett.

Nicole is the Team Leader for IMPACT's National Psychosocial Support Transition Program and Continuity of Supports, providing support to people within the community dealing with mental health challenges.

Nicole has been working with her participants in “front yard support” (observing social distancing rules), over the phone and via Skype.

And she has the perfect isolation wellness tip.

“I listen to Disney/Dreamworks songs and soundtracks to keep myself smiling,” Nicole said.

“It’s almost impossible not to be happy when you’re rocking out to I’m a Believer by Donkey (Shrek) or The Bare Necessities by Baloo (Jungle Book).”

And if these Disney gems don't get you moving, Nicole recommends putting on your trainers.

“The word on the street is to stay active to maintain physical and mental wellness while working from home,” Nicole said.

“I'm doing my part by getting out for a cruisey 30 minute lunchtime run! Loving the flex of working from home!”

So Nicole's advice is to make the best use of the flexibility of working from home to make sure you flex your muscles and get moving!
