If you constantly find yourself planted behind a desk or stuck in the car for much of your day, you’re not alone. Thanks to our urban lifestyle and the convenience of technology, people in Singapore are more inactive than ever. All that sitting down could be taking a toll on your health. Furthermore, in an era of instant communication and rocketing productivity, it is even more important to practice self-care. This month, we curated a list of invigorating experiences to get your body, mind and soul moving.

And congrats, you’ve made it more than halfway through 2019.

Circle of Life in Singapore Zoo (till 31st August)

Can’t get enough of The Lion King? How about a trip to the Singapore Zoo? Move to the jungle beats and spot animals that inspired Mufasa, Simba, Timon, Pumbaa, and the laughing Hyenas. Sing along to the tune of Hakuna Matata as mobile sets of iconic scenes from The Lion King move around the zoo. Tired of walking? Hop on the savannah themed tram for a musical performance as you ride through Singapore Zoo’s Wild Africa. Stay till the evening for a wild nocturnal experience at the Night Safari with drum and fire performances.
