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 Edge, a highly regarded closer look at how the speed of progress in modern medical devices is compromising patient health.
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.
