[TEST] “New year, same old me?” Forget Resolutions, We List Out 6 Most Important Things M’sians Should Focus On In 2021

With the dawn of every new year, most people would often set a few new resolutions that they wish to achieve for the year. But considering that we’ve welcomed 2021 in a ‘new normal’ way, it’s hard for us to set up expectations since the entirety of last year has been a giant moment of unexpected history!

Thus, we think that it’s probably time to stop being so hard on ourselves and put those resolutions to rest this year. Instead, let’s focus on a few things that really matter to ourselves. Check out this list to get a better idea!


1. Pay attention to your mental wellness

Staying at home during MCO is definitely safer for everyone, but it can take a toll on your mental health. If you’ve been feeling demotivated, stressed or lonely, please start taking steps to improve your emotional state and mental wellness. What you can do:

  • Try to do some meditation or breathing exercise. A good simple one is the ‘square breathing’ method where you can inhale, hold, exhale, hold, all for 4 seconds each and repeat!
  • Walk around your house area to get fresh air (but wear your mask and don’t go wandering too far off!).
  • Try to minimise your social media usage as it can promote unhealthy experiences such as feeling isolated or inadequate.


2. Get some exercise even if it’s just aunty-style power walking

If you’re staying at home 24/7 and working on a laptop from 9 to 6 every day, there’s a good chance your body is not getting enough movement, which will lead you to feel like you’ve aged 40 more years in a blink. What you can do:

  • Set up a timer to take a break every few hours to get up and stretch.
  • Get any form of exercising done, even if it’s just power walking around your house.


3. Say goodbye to teh tarik & boba teas

Yes, we know that pretty much everyone would set ‘get on a diet’ as their resolution but actually, you don’t need to put yourself through torture. Even just by skipping certain sugary drinks can already do wonders! What you can do:

  • Skip sugary drinks altogether and all the junk/fast food.
  • Start eating your meals on time to avoid snacking or random cravings. NEVER skip your meals!


4. Find a creative hobby to express yourself

Try out a paint-by-number kit like this!

Since we have a lot more free time indoors, why not fill them up by indulging in creative hobbies? Not only will this keep you occupied, but it’ll also provide an expressive outlet for your brain. What you can do:

  • Try out a new creative hobby like painting or sewing (there are tons of step-by-step kits you can get).
  • Challenge your creativity by rearranging furniture or reorganising closets.


5. A simple “you ok bro?” text/call can do wonders for you AND your friend

It is now more important than ever for you to stay connected and check in on your friends from time to time. It will also help you stay socially connected. What you can do:

  • Sending a simple “how are you?” text can make all the difference.
  • Don’t disregard any ‘red flags’ from their postings on social media.


6. Time to make ‘rumahku, syurgaku‘ a reality!

We’ve spent a great deal of last year staying at home and it seems like we’ll be doing the same this year, too. Thus, try to take some effort to create a more comfortable and stable environment at home to survive through these uncertain times. What you can do:

  • Don’t be a hoarder! A cluttered space equals a cluttered mind.
  • Reorganise your shelves, cupboards, storerooms, all of it!
  • Upgrade your place while the market is beneficial for buyers.

After spending a lot of time at home due to MCO, many Malaysians have come to realise just how much our living environment can actually impact our wellbeing. A good home is important to not only help you stay sane but also to upgrade your overall lifestyle.

Speaking of upgrading, if you’re currently considering moving to a new place, now might be the perfect time to do so, especially with the property market offering so many crazy deals now. I mean, have you seen this one from Tropicana? It’s awesome!
