5 Fun Activities for Your Stay Home Period

Jul 26 2021 - Blog

P2HA (Phase 2 Heightened Alert), we meet again. As the country fights back against an increase in Covid-19 cases, social distancing regulations are back in place, leaving us all disappointed. This time, with cases spread out around Singapore, it will be wise to stay home as much as possible.

Still, we can make the best out of the situation and live life to the fullest. Our stay home period can be fun, productive and comfortable. Whether you are voluntarily stuck at home or serving out your Stay Home Notice in a hotel, here are some ways to ease the cabin fever.

 

Sweat it out

Now is a good time to complete any workout goals that you have set for yourself at the start of the year. Being active doesn’t require a lot of space. Get your cardio in with a stationary spin bike or a foldable treadmill. With some dumbbells, you won’t have to neglect your strength training. Aim for 150 minutes of aerobic exercises a week to keep your body healthy.

 

 

Find mental stillness with yoga and meditation

This uncertain period will require you to nurture your mental wellness. Yoga or meditation can. With a yoga mat and some space, the practice of mindfulness encourages you to focus on the present, slow down and reflect deeper. Plus, you can also improve your strength, flexibility and balance with yoga.

 

 

Game on

Staying at home doesn’t automatically equate to boring. Have some fun with gaming consoles such as the PlayStation or Nintendo Switch. Gaming can not only help you to reduce your stress level, it can also stimulate your brain. Create a fun-filled family event at home with a PlayStation and bond with your loved ones.

 

 

Catch up on your favourite books

With socials cancelled and more time to yourself, you can now catch up on your reading. Reading reduces stress as it temporarily allows one to escape into another world. Those who have trouble sleeping, you may want to pick up a Kindle before bed as reading prepares you for a good night’s rest. Just 30 minutes can reduce your heart rate and blood pressure.

 

 

Keep your space clean

Cleanliness is even more vital now that your homes are supposed to be a safe haven to protect. Turn housecleaning into a fun game and get your family members on it. Maybe the person who first finishes their cleaning task wins a prize. With a clean and safe environment, you can now go about your daily lives without any worries. Consider using an air purifier to further remove dust, allergens and viruses.
