Marks Park

Park
Marks Lane/ Kenneth St Bondi, Fletcher St, Tamarama NSW 2026
Marks Park

"Nature is a really important part of where I find my calm. Luckily, Sydney is full of beaches and parks, so I look for places like Marks Park in Tamarama. I can take my dog there and see the ocean, and it makes you feel very small and insignificant, which is perfect when you're feeling blocked or stuck."

InYoga

Yoga studio
Level 2/137 Devonshire St, Surry Hills NSW 2010
InYoga

"There’s a yoga studio called InYoga in Surry Hills. It's where I took my first yoga class, which became a big part of my life. Learning to quiet my mind helped me get quiet when I'm writing and find a different, better, relationship with writing and being creative."

MyFlowerMan

Florist
32a Fletcher St, Bondi NSW 2026
MyFlowerMan

"MyFlowerMan is a hole-in-the-wall cafe, but also a florist, so there are always beautiful floral arrangements. You can buy flowers by the stem. It is like a really nice ritual to go and pick a few beautiful flowers, go for a coffee and then walk down to the park."

Nimbus Co

Infrared sauna
97 Bondi Rd, Bondi Beach NSW 2026
Nimbus Co

"My favorite thing to do on a gloomy sort of rainy afternoon in Sydney is to go to a sauna. There's a place called Nimbus Co, such an aesthetically beautiful place. I like to leave my phone on flight mode outside the room, and either do meditation or listen to a podcast."
