Business travellers, we hear you! We know travelling for work can sometimes leave you feeling stressed, restricted and ready to get back home. By booking the right Brisbane or Melbourne accommodation apartments and sticking to a few simple routines, though, you’ll be feeling right at home and far better prepared for business in the city. Here are our five simple yet time-tested tricks for feeling at home when you’re away from home.
Reset your body clock
If you’re feeling jet lagged, the quickest way to get back into the swing of things is to sleep to your new time zone. It’s wise to avoid naps during the day, close your blackout curtains, sleep at your usual bed time (appropriate to the new time zone) and set your alarm for your usual wake up time. You’ll be feeling yourself again before you know it.
Choose serviced apartments in Brisbane or Melbourne
You could spend your stay in a cramped hotel room – or for a similar price you could also have a washing machine and dryer, a fully equipped kitchenette, a private balcony and a sitting area so you can stretch out and relax. Serviced apartments in Melbourne or Brisbane give you plenty of space just like home – with the added bonus of daily servicing!
Unpack your luggage
One of the simplest ways to feel at home is to be able to find exactly what you need, when you need it. While unpacking isn’t always possible in a tiny hotel room, by booking an apartment you’ll have the storage space and plenty of working surfaces so you can feel completely organised without tripping over your suitcase.
Make yourself a meal
While room service can be convenient and travelling provides the opportunity to dine at incredible restaurants, if you’re staying for a week or more you may feel a craving for your favourite meal or a healthy snack. By booking an apartment with a kitchen or kitchenette, you’ll be able to whip up a healthy stir-fry, a hot drink when you want it and simple meals when you don’t feel like venturing out.
Explore the surrounding streets
To feel at home in a new city, start exploring like a local! Be sure to step out to the streets around your accommodation, sit outside with a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. If you’re staying in central Melbourne or Brisbane city accommodation you may have some wonderful dining and entertainment close by, so why not make the most of your stay?
