Dear Singapore: It's OK to take a break. Love, Sentosa

'Make time' campaign, via BBH Singapore, includes TV, OOH and research showing just how reluctant people are to let themselves, and their kids, relax for a while.

A new campaign for Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) by BBH Singapore encourages hard-working Singaporeans to unwind a bit—and includes research showing that they currently only set aside 1% of each week as "leisure time".

The “Make Time” campaign includes a nice TVC that visualises the mental burden of work as literal desks that both adults and children carry around at all times. Is it a bit manipulative to show a little kid labouring under such a weight? Perhaps, but it's also an unfortunate truth that many kids in this region don't really get the time to just be kids.

The campaign includes PR events around a study performed by Asia Insights as well as partnerships with influencers such as food blogger Miss Tam Chiak and actress Kate Pang. Launched today, the campaign will continue for about six months, including nine weeks of print and TV.

Here's some of the campaign posters:
