Making time for a little self-care couldn’t be more tempting in 2022. It’s the beginning of a new year, but with the pandemic in its third year, the commencement of the fifth COVID-19 wave and the borders of Hong Kong remaining firmly shut – time has lost meaning. With this, many of us are probably experiencing, to varying degrees, lockdown fatigue.
From wearing masks all the time to isolating to working from home, COVID-19 has undoubtedly affected every aspect of our lives, and while we’re adapting, it’s stressful.
One good way to find relief is through self-care. Self-care is pretty self-explanatory – it’s taking care of yourself both physically and mentally. No matter the form it may take, if something enriches you and positively benefits your overall health, it can be considered a type of self-care.
Read on for some of our recommendations for self-care in Hong Kong that will help loosen your body and your mind.
