In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, many people are feeling overwhelmed and need some time to rest and recuperate. At some point, almost everyone has a desire to break away from reality, both physically and emotionally, and the way each person escapes from daily routines can vary. For some people, a getaway is as simple as cleaning the house, but for others, a getaway means going somewhere far away, eating at a fancy restaurant, and so on. However, everyone has a different way, and the Danamon JCB Precious Card can help find a getaway that suits them.
"Every single person has a different way of #BebasDariRutinitas or to be free from their routines, it does not always have to be physically like going on vacation but also emotionally, namely doing hobbies that are completely different from their daily professions. Traveling is often considered effective because we are directly in an environment that is different from our daily lives, but in fact, there are many ways we can free ourselves from our daily grind. For example, in the midst of a series of online or offline meeting schedules, we can order special food or snacks that we enjoy while having a break. Others may specifically plan their weekends for cooking, watching movies, meditating, doing yoga, or hanging out with friends and family. Research has shown that taking time off from work can have physical and mental health benefits. People who regularly take breaks and ‘me time’ have lower stress levels, a lower risk of heart disease, a better outlook on life, and greater motivation to achieve goals,” explains Saskhya Aulia Prima, Psychologist, at the Danamon JCB Precious Card launch.
“#BebasDariRutinitas, especially because during the pandemic we are faced with a series of activities, the majority of which occur virtually. Moreover, most of us are still afraid to leave the house and take a vacation because of social restrictions. I love my profession and am highly dedicated, but I find that a break from routines is important to my mental health. The Danamon JCB Precious Card is my chosen getaway companion because I can enjoy my hobby without losing control of my expenses. This card is not only for payment, but also a means of money management with the benefits and features offered,” added Karina Nadila.
