Home improvement projects during circuit breaker
With many of us spending more time at home, home improvement projects are a great way to stay productive. We’re not recommending you pull a Marie Kondo and rid your home of anything that does not “spark joy”. But here’s a few ideas to get you started.
Get that new furniture or appliance you’ve been holding out for
The vacation you’ve been saving for will probably not be possible anytime soon. Instead, why not give your home a revamp and pick up that piece of furniture you’ve been eyeing. As for your old furniture, you could pass it on to someone who needs it. If it is a relatively new piece and you’re planning to sell it online, use Lalamove to arrange for door-to-door delivery.
A fresh coat of paint to brighten up your day
Do you remember the last time you had your home or room painted? Most don’t, but if you do, you probably didn’t paint your walls in “off-white dirty yellow”. With many idle hands in the house, now’s better a time than ever to give your home a facelift. Besides, it is a fun activity for couples and the whole family.
Get a green friend to reduce stress and increase productivity
It is no secret why Singapore is the city with the most trees. Our city planners knew this from way back in the day. Plants much like trees have the same effect of freshening up the air in your home. With the situation we are in—being stuck at home and all— stress may creep in and lead to a drop in productivity, especially if you’re working from home. Interaction with Indoor plants can reduce stress and boost productivity by 15% according to studies. So pick a plant today, at worst your room just got a little more Instagram worthy.
