Malaysians have been confined to their homes to abide by the Movement Control Order (MCO) issued by the government for safety reasons. For many, MCO has caused their daily lives to go awry while indefinite social distancing and information overload has caused feelings of anxiety and isolation. These feelings can affect our overall well-being and it is imperative for everyone to destress in a healthy way.
Here are Tanamera’s top picks that can help relieve stress, relax the body and promote better sleep.
