When you first heard about the Government’s Work From Home policy, you probably felt ecstatic. Especially if you are living in Jakarta. Finally, you can take a break from the exhausting traffic jams, pollution, and the hustle bustle of the metro city. Some of us might even think this is our opportunity to experience a long holiday.
Work From Home is Not a Holiday
But in less than a week, you might feel bored and run out of ideas on what to do besides finishing some office work or doing virtual meetings with co-workers. Especially when we realized that we are not supposed to go anywhere. Instead of feeling that we are on a long holiday, we begin to feel imprisoned by all the limitations that are imposed on us. We started to miss our family and friends who are not in the same home as us.
Let’s Self Care Together, KALMers!
But this does not mean we can then go outside because simply we feel bored, KALMers! There are other things we can do in our own homes at times like this. So what is it? What else can we do? Well, self-care of course! Here are some self-care tips you can do at home during WFH! We even divided it by room.
Activities in the Bedroom
- Sleep well.
- Start downsizing (streamlining the contents of your room by removing unnecessary items or donating things that are still in a good condition.
- Use a face mask or scrub.
Activities in the Kitchen
- Experiment with new recipes.
- Make your favorite cake.
- Tidy up your fridge.
Activities in the Living Room
- Watching movies or back to back Korean dramas.
- Doing some sport with Youtube video guides.
- Power nap for 20 minutes.
- Solo concert

PS: We know that not just everyone can do work from home. For all of you who still have to work out there for various reasons we hope you will all be okay. Keep maintaining your immunity and hygiene, KALMers. Let’s all pray for the best so that this will pass as soon as possible.
Keep up the good energy, KALMers!
