We're in unprecedented times with the coronavirus COVID-19 now a global issue. It's no longer a conversation of 'if and when' but rather 'who has been affected, how we can prevent the spread, and what's the socially responsible thing to do'.
In Singapore, we're increasingly socially distancing ourselves. Bars, clubs and other entertainment venues have been ordered to close, working from home is the new normal, and we're constantly being asked to limit non-essential activities.
Being cooped up at home for most of our time may sound like a blessing initially—introverts especially would love the less social aspect of it—but, as we all know, the boredom is real. Being socially responsible doesn't mean life stops at a standstill. And while this is undoubtedly a serious matter, it's still important to find a little semblance of levity in the situation. Because precautionary measures shouldn't be all doom and gloom.
In this COVID-19 edition of Esquire Singapore's 'Crack the Code', we've come up with a selection of items to help make being a homebody a tad easier. Whether it's making sure that your mind is enriched, wearing something comfortable (and still stylish), or catching up on a well-loved series, the right combination will score you a prize.
