Healthy Ways to Spend a Typhoon Day | Liv

As typhoon Mangkhut bears down on the city and everyone heads indoors to ride out the storm, we’ve come up with some inspo to keep you happy and healthy at home.

Catch up on Netflix

This one might be obvious, but rather than binge-watching Nailed It!, take the typhoon as an opportunity to catch up on all those documentaries you haven’t had a chance to see. On Netflix right now are Minimalism, about the power of decluttering; and The Bleeding Edgea highly regarded closer look at how the speed of progress in modern medical devices is compromising patient health.

Get Mindful

There’s no better time to give meditation a go than on a day when you’re cooped up indoors. Guided meditation has never been easier with apps such as Headspace or Calm. Find a quiet room in the house and get mindful.

HIIT at Home

Pacing your flat like a caged tiger? Hop online and get inspired with some workout tutorials that you can do at home. Check out HASFit for HIIT tutorials; or Do Yoga With Me, which offers hundreds of free online classes. Got kids? We love Cosmic Kids Yoga, which has cute, story-driven asanas for the entire fam.
