5 Ways to Enrich Yourself While Staying at Home

With the Movement Control Order (MCO) taking place, many of us are staying at home, continuing to carry on with the mundane day-to-day tasks with the exception of not being able to do outdoor activities. However, staying at home is not all gloom and doom. It can be fruitful when you have a list of planned ideas on the things to do.

If you are in the midst of planning homebody friendly activities, here are Klook’s five recommendations on how to enrich and entertain yourself:

1. Marie Kondo your living space

Aside from occasionally heading out for groceries, we will be staying at home most of the time. As such, it is essential to keep it a comfortable space to stay in.

Seize this opportunity to spring clean your home by disposing items that you no longer need, rearranging your space, get rid of the dust and disinfect high-touch surfaces at least once per day.

2. Organise your travel photos with Photobook

While the MCO means that you can’t make travel plans temporarily, you can make use of this time to relive those good old days of vacation by sorting through travel photos. 

Nothing feels more satisfying than flipping through a physical album that’s been carefully picked and curated by yourself. One of the ways is to compile those photos and bring them to life in a custom album via Photobook Malaysia

Pro tip: Starting from today until 31 March 2020, Photobook is giving out an exclusive 75% discount on all photo books. One (1) lucky user will receive a RM500 Klook voucher for use on any activity once it’s safe to travel again. Click on this article to find out more information.

3. Watch TV series or movies that have been on your list

Catch some good old movies or TV series that have been sitting on your list while you were busying with work and catching up friends during the weekends. If you miss having friends to group watch a show, fret not! Set up a watch party and you will still get to interact with one another in the same moment.

4. Travel virtually to these 12 attractions

Though these trying times would’ve been best cured through travel, it is responsible for us adventure-seekers to comply with travel restrictions. Soon, we’ll get the chance to hop on another plane towards our next destination, but for now, let’s daydream a little bit about our next adventure.

Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can virtually transport ourselves to another city or country. You’ll be surprised that there are multiple platforms that offer a wide range of virtual tours of the world’s most exciting attractions - from Machu Picchu in Peru to the deep blue seas of the Caribbean. Tour these 12 attractions virtually from your couch.

5. Develop and improve skills

This is the time to identify any personal and work skills to develop or improve on. It can be learning a new language, improving writing skills or looking into effective ways to manage financial skills. Invest time for it and you will be surprised how much you’ve achieved within a short period of time.


Stay safe everybody! Keep calm and stay home safely.
