Keep Calm and Carry On: 5 Ways to Destress in Singapore

Person A: Don’t be stressed, think positively! 

Person B: Sure, why didn’t I think of that? Thanks, I’m not stressed anymore!

– No conversation ever

Stress is a normal state of mind in the 21st century. We are constantly pressured by successful people on social media, pressured by work deadlines and if you are Asian, pressured by your parents. 


Staying at home and Netflixing is one way to manage stress but excessive binge-watching has negative consequences for mental health. Before casual Netflixing turns out to be counter-productive, we recommend these 5 Ways to Destress in Singapore.

Working out is the great, zero-cost stress-reliever. And no, we don’t mean those hardcore workout sessions you see online but rather light training plans.

However, the mere thought of exercising may cause some of us to deflate and click away. The gym membership is too expensive, some might say.

With the Nike Training app, you can start simple and easy. It’s also free! No matter your level of fitness, the app has carefully curated training programs for you. Say good-bye to the sluggish and low-energy days and welcome each day in your best condition. You’ll be surprised at how spending 30 minutes every morning working out can significantly impact your day for the better.

Celebrate anywhere with Venuerific! 

Stress is an inevitable part of life. We cannot control what happens to us but only how we react to it. We hope that everyone will be able to relieve their stress by enjoying the finer things in life through fun events! If you are looking for more ways to relieve stress, we also recommend yoga!
