How to Keep Things Exciting this MCO 2.0
(and stand a chance at winning cash!)
Does 2021 feel like another year that will fly by with a blink of an eye because of the COVID-19 episode? Big yes. But this MCO 2.0, let us not only focus on work, trying out new recipes, workout regimes, or increased screen time.
Spice it up by joining an online casino Malaysia and trying out online casino games that will keep your stay-home groove fun, exciting, and rewarding (we’re talking about extra money!). Continue with the article to see what type of games you can give a go. But first, let us talk about –
There is nothing new about starting the New Year with two weeks (possibly longer) of MCO. With the same SOPs, it feels like 2020 version 2.0.
With COVID-19 cases hitting four figures daily, and perhaps 8,000 a day by the middle of March if we are negligent, people in the MCO areas are to stay home, work from home, and jangan ke sana ke sini. Otherwise, kena roadblock or saman!
For individuals living with their families, housemates, or partners, the MCO days pass by differently than those who live alone. It certainly gets noisy and irritable at times, spending so many hours with the same people under the same roof, but the flip side is that nobody gets lonely.
For the single men and women, there’s nobody to:
• make Dalgona coffee for
• Netflix and chill with
• popek to when they attend yet another useless and time-wasting Zoom call
• talk to throughout the day
• eat meals with
The list goes on. The closest to human interaction is when abang Grab shows up with the food. And when the night comes to an end, they climb into bed for a goodnight’s sleep, only to repeat the same mundane routine the next morning.
Read on to find out what effects staying home by yourself can bring.
The pandemic is doing well enough a job getting Malaysians in a state, but with the stay-home practice enforced, it is like a double whammy.
Whether it is a self-imposed quarantine or you doing your part in flattening the curve by social distancing, the outbreak and MCO 2.0 have forced many individuals to be alone unexpectedly.
And this isn’t one of those “I’m going on a people-detox for self-care” kind of situation. MCO 2.0 causes social isolation that takes away human interaction we can so easily access in February 2020.
Being alone takes a toll on a person’s mental and physical health. We are social species in nature that need our buddies to survive.
Some of the unfavourable effects your brain can experience due to a lack of brain stimulation are:
1. Declined thinking abilities – You process information slower and find it harder to make decisions or recall.
2. Heightened stress response – You stress about anything and everything. Little and big inconveniences trigger your stress alarm too.
3. Repetitive negative thinking – You jump the gun and think of the worst-case scenario.
Some of the unfavourable effects your body/emotion experiences due to isolation are:
1. The body becomes a 7-Eleven – Your body and system cannot relax because of the stress your brain takes on, thus, keeping you awake throughout the night or experience night time restlessness.
2. Constant feeling of unease – You may experience a mild or severe anxiety attack, panic attack, or depression triggered by a build-up of stressful life events, some of which can be extreme and serious.
3. Feeling fatigued – When your mental and emotional health are compromised, your brain automatically produces less DOSE – dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphin. These are chemicals responsible for creating positive emotions. When you lack them, you become less motivated, and slowly, the gloominess eats you up. Naturally, coping becomes more difficult, thus sucking the life out of you, leaving you drained.
The domino effect of this pandemic is harsh. We may be 3,204 km from Wuhan, but the impact is close and closer to heart for those who have suffered directly or the by-product of the outburst, such as MCO 2.0.
Everybody deals with this predicament differently. Some learn to take it easy, while the rest feel it deeply. Whichever you may be, there are multiple ways for you to pull yourself out of the funk.
