  2. Get outside and go for a walk

    Yes, it is Winter, and yes it is cold, but rug up and get outside anyway. Once you get moving you’ll soon warm up. Before you know it you’ll removing layers. When you get home you will be more motivated to get stuff done.

  3. Get out the slow cooker and cook up a storm

    Winter is a great time to cook in bulk. Choose a few of your favourite recipes, put some time aside to shop for the ingredients and cook up a storm. Why not cook extra and freeze the left overs and pull them out of the freezer in a week or two for a delicious quick meal.

  4. Invite friends over for dinner

    What better way to get motivated to clean up the house than to host a party. Any old excuse will do, but how about Winter Solstice (21 June), Christmas in July or get some of your friends around to watch a footy match.

  5. Plan your meals with a different country cuisine each week

    Put some time aside to plan your meals for the next 3 weeks. Choose a different country for each week and plan at least 3 meals in that week from that country. Fill up the rest of the week with your favourite Aussie food.

  6. Start “Speed Cleaning”
