Activities You Can Do to Spend Your “Alone Time”

Whether in person or social media, we are always looking to meet everyone’s expectations. But as you know, sometimes we need to take a step back and enjoy our “me” time. And here are some activities for you to do just that.

Cook
Learning to cook or learning a new recipe can be more fun if you try to do it by yourself. For one, you’ll be able to save yourself from the primary embarrassment of making a mistake, like overcooking rice or something. You’ll also be able to experiment on new recipes without being disturbed by others.

Read a book
Being able to read in complete silence without hearing other people’s noises can give you quite a wonderful time. On the flip side, you could also read out loud as if you were narrating the story yourself. Not only is it fun to put your own twist to the voices of the characters, you’re also giving your mind some exercise because you’re not only using your eyes this time, but also your mouth and ears.

Dance!
When there’s nobody else with you, of course you won’t be disturbing anyone if you put your favorite music on full blast (but consider your neighbors!). You can easily go and dance around the house to your favorite dance songs without worrying about being judged. Why will it matter if you’re a bit bad at dancing if there’s no one else to see?

Hit the karaoke
The thing about KTV is that it can be enjoyed individually just as much as with a group. Whether you’re a little embarrassed with your voice, or you just prefer going solo, go ahead and sing your heart out to Jay Chou’s and/or Stefanie Sun’s songs!

Go window-shopping
It’s no question that the malls around Singapore are quite known. So much so that shopping is even considered a hobby by many. Even if you don’t have much money, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to the malls and have a little fun.

Visit a museum
If you want to learn more about the history and culture of Singapore, then there’s no better place than the National Museum of Singapore itself. Both the History and Living galleries are incredible sights to see.

Take a hike
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Fort Canning Park, Pulau Ubin, and MacRitchie Reservoir are among the many parks and nature trails in Singapore. Taking a hike and having a date with nature can give you a time for stress relief and relaxation, hence making you calmer and keeping your mind fresh.

Try a new form of physical exercise
Cycling and jogging or common ways to exercise. Give yourself a challenge and try something new. Go gym climbing, boxing, fencing, swimming and etc. You never know, you might find a physical hobby that you’ll actually enjoy.
