How to Beat the Lockdown Blues and Boost Workplace Wellbeing

Are you looking for a way to boost workplace wellbeing? Virtual team building activities can promote camaraderie and company culture even if people don’t physically meet each other. These activities will get your employees building relationships and trust while also having a good time! When trying to work through an Australia lockdown, having these fun things to do in Sydney may be what your office needs.

Remember that the typical WFH scenario involves managing kids at home and trying to get work done simultaneously. It’s an all too common scenario for many parents—and many can find it extra challenging to concentrate on their tasks. You can give your hardworking team that well-deserved recognition by treating them to Zoom activities that can spark their creativity and even take some of the stress away. It’s your chance to thank them for powering through this pandemic, giving their best efforts, and helping the company to move forward.

Online team building activities come in all shapes and sizes, and you’ll surely find one in 2021 that will knock everybody’s socks off. Even better, you no longer have to worry about booking venues and finding the right facilitator because your remote teams can just log on to Zoom and do the activities right there.

If you’re a team leader in search of the best virtual team activities your team will love for those dreary days stuck inside, then you’re in luck. It’s easy to organize online craft classes, virtual team games, or even Zoom icebreakers. Whatever you need, we've got you covered. We can even advise you on other creative ways to bring your teammates closer, even if it’s just through a virtual setting. Here are a few suggestions on things to do in Melbourne, Sydney and beyond that will help get your workplace back to its everyday sparkle, despite the lockdown blues.

Promote Workplace Wellbeing with a Virtual Cooking Session

Find out how to level up your cooking by sharing a virtual kitchen with your coworkers. You’ll be able to learn how to cook a gourmet meal together while learning from each other through our online cooking classes. And if you’re not a great cook, don’t worry! The ingredients and instructions will all be provided, and you'll enjoy a delectable meal together to celebrate your accomplishment. With everything from rustic Italian cooking classes to cookie decorating, there’s a cooking workshop for every taste (and dietary preference!). 

Going through a virtual cooking workshop not only teaches you a new recipe or two but also gives you the confidence to try out different cuisines in the future. With this, you and your teammates can get the chance to make healthier choices when it comes to the meals you want to enjoy. You not only become more conscious about what goes in every dish, but you also get better ideas on nutritious snacks that can boost work productivity, too. Having healthier meals to enjoy at home or work helps boost your energy, giving you more concentration to get things done in a snap.

See? Zoom isn’t just a venue for reports, presentations, and meetings – it’s also the perfect place to sharpen your cooking skills. Add this to your list of Zoom party ideas and see how much fun your team will have as they whip up yummy creations from scratch.

Worried that a recipe may seem too difficult to follow? Are you concerned that some of the ingredients will be hard to find? Don’t freak out because our online cooking classes will provide you with all the ingredients you need in one convenient box. As your cooking supplies arrive at your door, tie your aprons on, and get ready to log in for a delicious gastronomic session. Our expert Australian culinary master will guide you via Zoom from food preparation to cooking to presentation. At the end of your workshop, everybody gets to gather round, sit back and enjoy the sumptuous fruits of their labour. Bon appetit!

Go for a Virtual Paint and Sip Class

Online painting classes have become all the rage of late—and for good reason. Painting can be a form of stress relief when you have a hectic workday, and you want to just take a break. Just pop open a bottle of wine, bring out your paintbrush, and listen to your instructor teach you how to make a masterpiece. This virtual team building activity is certainly a new way to give your workmates a break while gaining new skills.

Going online for an art class and having a couple of drinks is a welcome alternative for shy coworkers. They don't have to compete with the extroverts in the office and can quietly paint with their headphones in when they want.

The great thing about these virtual workshops is that beginners are always welcome. Tell your colleagues that they don’t need to be master artists to join this activity. Not only is this session challenging, but it’s also engaging at the same time. With a local painter's help, you and your team can get down to the basics and create a work of art. At the same time, share a chat with your friends as you sip on a refreshing glass of wine. What could be more fun than that?

The good news is there are plenty of paint and sip online workshops for you to enjoy. Even better, each participant will receive a curated craft box with all the art supplies and wine needed for a night of painting and drinking. Get ready for an afternoon of flexing your creative muscles and expanding your artistic horizons – what more could you want from when it comes to team bonding activities? 

Cooking classes and virtual paint and sip workshops are only two of the numerous team building activities you can sign up for. You may even try your hand at online pottery classes and challenge each other with building from clay. How about you try being a mixologist for a day and go for virtual cocktail making classes that all team members will enjoy? Any way it happens, it's sure to be a fantastic experience for your workmates to share. Virtual cooking, painting, and cocktail making classes are all great team building activities that bring people together.
