Following the latest news on Thursday, 22 July, Singapore has pivoted back to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).

Keep Moving

Gyms and fitness studios may be closed, but exercise is beneficial for your health and well-being. Try walking at least 10,000 steps a day, or engage in some form of physical activity. There are many apartment-friendly, home workouts to be found on YouTube, be it yoga, HIIT, or even strength training.

Treat Yourself

If you’re afraid to step out of the house in the meantime, there’s no reason why you can’t have a spa day at home — here’s how.

Order in Your Favourite Food

Just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean you need to give up your favourite food. It’s a great way to support local during this tough time where everyone is struggling, too. While we can’t dine out in the meantime, there are tons of food options available on delivery platforms. If you want to spend some time with a loved one, why not opt for a restaurant DIY meal kit?

Catch Up With Your Besties Over Some Online Games

We may not be able to meet our friends for meals, albeit from the comfort of our own homes, but thanks to the internet. There are tons of free party games that you can bring the whole group together over Zoom, and still have a blast!

Schedule a Date Night In

Be it a movie, some board games or just a home-cooked meal, date night doesn’t have to be fancy. Spending time with our loved ones can help us cope during these stressful times. There’s plenty of great ways to show others that you care, from care packages, flowers to even, pssst, a Vaniday gift card (no expiry!) — hey, in a time like this, even the simple things have a big impact on someone’s day.

This, too, will pass, and we’ll get through Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) stronger than ever.
