If you live alone:

1. Celebrate the weekend by rewarding yourself with a luxurious spa day

Working from home can be as stressful and draining as working in the office, and you deserve to treat yourself. Go ahead and order a body scrub to exfoliate your skin. If you have a bathtub, fill it up with essential oils or any of your favourite ingredients. 

Set your phone on silent mode or switch off your mobile data. The last thing you need is some disturbance as you spend some precious me time.

Then put on some music, light some candles, apply that face mask, and relax. 

2. End the day by getting on a call with your besties or loved ones

Once you're all relaxed and refreshed, get on a call together with your friends or loved ones to check in on each other. Catching up with one another can do wonders to your overall mood. 

Update one another about your week, play some online games, or enjoy a virtual cinema experience together. While you're at it, order some food so you can makan together. 

Sometimes, all we need is a little company to make our weekend more fun and productive. 

If you live with your partner:

3. Have a dressed up, sexy date night at home

It's another weekend of staying at home. Why not spruce it up a little bit? 

Instead of having your usual dinners, recreate a fancy dining experience with your partner to turn it up a notch. 

Put on that shirt or dress you've been meaning to wear and decorate your place for a more atas look so you and your partner can get into that romantic, sexy mood. 

And we get it, cooking home-cooked meals can be tiring or eating them often gets boring after a while. Why not order some good food this time around, and save all the trouble from cooking? 

If you're married with kids:

4. Throw an indoor treasure hunt to keep you and your family entertained for hours

Kids love games. Having an indoor treasure hunt would be a great way to keep you and your kids occupied and engaged. 

The treasure hunt doesn't have to be difficult, but rather, a simple one with easy-to-solve puzzles and questions. Firstly, set a theme to determine the type of clues and puzzles to search and solve. Next, plan out a map or a timeline to identify how long the treasure hunt will roughly take. 

The best part? Your kids will be tired and hungry after all the braining and running around. :p

5. Challenge your kids to do house chores and reward them

House chores can get dull at times, so why not make a friendly competition out of it? Challenge your kids to find out who can fold laundry faster, or who can make their beds the neatest. It makes cleaning and tidying a little more fun!

Or if you're up for more unique challenges, get your kids to do some arts and crafts, or have a family mukbang together! 

If you live with your parents:

6. Experience virtual museum or gallery tours together in front of the big screen

Take the time to bond with your parents by going on hour-long virtual museum, art gallery, or aquarium tours in front of your TV. And since travelling isn't permitted, this is one way to dive deep into different cultures and histories. 

If museums and galleries do not interest you, why not watch travel videos together, so you can have a list of things to do when your family goes on a holiday in the future? 

There are loads of travelling or tour shows available on Netflix and YouTube, which you can easily hook up to your TV screen. 

If you live with housemates:

7. Organise a game night and food feast

Take out an old board game that’s been in your storeroom. If you don’t have any, there are plenty of fun and affordable board games you can order online. 

Or if you prefer fast-paced games, there are numerous websites and apps online like Triple Agent, Among Us, Skribbl that are great for groups. Also, you can take advantage of the fact that y'all are now at home together. Make up simple games to get to know each other better and on a deeper level as well. 

Have a feast together with your housemates once you're all ready to makan. After all, food is best enjoyed with company. And ordering a feast from McDonald's is sure to keep everyone happy! 

No matter who you're living with, you can always level up your weekend by ordering McDonald's [email protected] packages!
