5 Unorthodox out-of-office activities to unwind and destress

Ever find yourself doing the same activities to destress? Here are five uncommon activities to find joy and wind down.

Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing is a form of eco-therapy that involves basking in nature, away from the fast-paced world.

A direct translation from the Japanese term "shinrin yoku", forest bathing is a form of eco-therapy that involves basking in nature, away from the fast-paced world.

Unlike hiking, no set destinations and goals exist in forest bathing. Forest therapy guides conduct forest bathing sessions in parks, gardens, or nature spots, combining it with meditation or tea ceremonies to facilitate a more therapeutic experience.

This might be the ideal out-of-office activity if you seek a sanctuary to momentarily unwind and slow down. To kickstart your forest bathing experience, click here to learn more.

Aqua Yoga

While aqua yoga may seem more challenging, it is ultimately a unique experience that should be tried at least once.

Yoga might be the first to come to mind when we talk about meditative yet stimulating exercises. With the surge in yoga studios in Singapore, you might think you’ve seen or experienced it all.

Here's something different: Instead of yoga mats, you can learn to hold your poses on a floating mat in a swimming pool. Your centre of gravity will change as you move from one pose to another, so be prepared to get wet!

Fishing is another activity well-loved by both young and old Singaporeans alike.

However, with many fishing sessions conducted during the day, you are exposed to unpredictable weather and can potentially get sunburnt, which might spoil the fun.

Night kayak fishing allows you to spot different species that are more active at night. You can also enjoy the cool breeze and serenity of the night as you fish, providing an environment to unwind while waiting for your catch.
