These days, it’s easier than ever to live your whole life online. You can order a meal to be delivered, look for new sneakers, restock your groceries and even watch the latest movies – all without getting off your lounge chair.
Shopping for anything and everything is so easy and addictive that you end up spending more time indoors and online – and inevitably spending money on things that really aren’t a necessity.
Hands up if you’ve ever added something you don’t really need to your cart, just so you qualify for free shipping.
Put the other hand up if you’re constantly spammed by online retailers touting sales and promo codes, and you feel the pressure to head over to their website to look around in case you miss a good deal. Yes, FOMO.
Stop the mindless online shopping and just go outside already! Just taking a walk in the park or by the seaside early in the morning or before dusk is incredibly calming for the mind and will do wonders for your psyche.
Despite being highly urbanised, Singapore has lovely green pockets, such as the Southern Ridges, Bay East, Singapore Botanic Gardens Learning Forest, Coney Island, and the list goes on.
We’re not known as a City in a Garden for nothing, so it’s a waste not to enjoy the excellent urban planning.
