Six Awesome Ways to Challenge Yourself in 2021
A new year calls for new experiences! So, join us in taking the challenge to mix things up for the better this year. Whether you’re looking to dip your toe in the water or really take the plunge, we’ve curated a collection of challenges to bring more fun to your every day and help you move out of your comfort zone.
We’ve designed each challenge so you can choose where you most need a breath of fresh air – from new meals to new threads or even a home décor revamp, you can easily find everything you need at our food, fashion, beauty, lifestyle and homewares retailers.
Start with a small challenge, like testing out a new recipe at home or indulging at a restaurant other than your trusted go-to. If you’re feeling fashion-forward, maybe it’s time to rework your back-to-office wardrobe! Or be daring and book in for that hair transformation you’ve been considering for a while.
The choice is yours – there are inspiring challenges to suit all budgets and tastes. What are you waiting for?
Take the challenge today and share your ‘something new’ by tagging Bankstown Central and using #takeon2021.
