Christmas may have the reputation for the most wonderful time of the year, but the start of a new year is special in its own right. It’s the perfect time for fresh starts, chasing dreams, and committing to bettering yourself for the next 365 days and beyond. Unfortunately, where many people go wrong with making New Year’s Resolutions is neglecting to make them achievable. Luckily, our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 305 is just the new beginning you’re looking for to launch into your best year yet—with many more to follow. Especially if you’re hoping to boost your health and wellbeing in 2023; because Bribie Island has everything you need to live a happy, active life without even trying.
From exploring its beautiful natural surrounds to making the most of Bribie Island’s two golf courses close to your new Mater Prize Home, you’ll have no trouble sticking to your wellness resolutions in 2023.
With a prestigious golf course behind your prize home backyard and two new sets of golf clubs included in this home lottery (valued at $7,469), you’ll find it irresistible to take up the sport. And good thing too, as it offers both physical and mental benefits. Golf is a great low-impact exercise that has been found to help improve cardiovascular health, body composition and aerobic fitness. It’s also excellent for balance and core stability. But one of the best things about taking up golf is the connectedness it provides for your mental wellbeing. There are few sports where you get to spend extensive quality time conversing and connecting with your golfing buddies, and where people of all ages and abilities can get involved.
Fitness tip: For those days when you want an extra hit of exercise, consider leaving your brand new golf cart (valued at $18,740) in your garage and reap the rewards of walking all 18 holes on foot.
The therapeutic benefits of surfing is possibly the biggest drawcard for adding this sport to your new year exercise routine, along with the physical workout you’ll get from catching waves. Surfing works your legs, arms and core muscles, helps build up heart strength, and requires focus and concentration—which allows you to free your mind of your daily stresses and just be present amongst the waves. It’s the perfect post-work wind-down and a fun way to squeeze in a daily dose of exercise. Woorim Beach is the place to go for your surfing fix on Bribie Island, or if you have a 4WD, you’ll love the serenity of surfing the quieter northern tip of the island.
If you’re someone who really likes to feel the burn when you workout, make a morning visit to any of Bribie Island’s beautiful beaches part of your regular exercise routine. Sand sprints are a great way to work leg muscles you wouldn’t normally activate during a run on flat surfaces, plus, with the stunning scenery around you and the ocean by your side for a post-workout dip, you’ll actually enjoy the intense physical challenge.
Experiencing Bribie Island’s beautiful natural surrounds will hardly feel like exercise, but the good news is it most definitely is. Far more beneficial to your health than clocking up the miles on a treadmill in a gym, walking out in nature has been found to help reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and stress hormone levels. And of course, it also provides a cardiovascular workout for your overall health and fitness. Looking for a picturesque trail to get you started? Try one of the White Patch Tracks that starts at the sealed road past the Ranger’s Station and finishes on the beach on Pumicestone Passage at Gallagher’s Point. You’ll spot nature, wildlife, and the stunning Glasshouse Mountains along the 2.5hr return trek.
