Good morning! Stress in our daily lives is unfortunately normal, and when you add a pandemic to the mix, that stress can become an ever-present part of everyday life. We’ve had to redefine how we take time for ourselves to unwind and relax as travelling out of the country, as Singaporeans usually do, is no longer an easy option.
To get a better understanding of how stress is affecting individuals during the pandemic, Traveloka conducted a wellness survey with Singaporean respondents. Through their research, they found:
- More than 60% of respondents had felt their stress levels increase after the pandemic
- The results showcased the top 3 reasons for Men’s stress were caused by financial stability (51%), longer working hours (44%), and limited mobility (44%). While for Women, the top 3 reasons stress were triggered by limited mobility (45%), longer working hours (43%), and health risk (42%)
78% of respondents indicated their interest in getting some rest by doing a staycation in a hotel or resort with more than 3 days off to relax and unwind. While 53% of respondents also stated their desire to have fun at attractions and 45% of respondents looking for adventurous tours
