SINGAPORE - Artist Tan Yang Er, 25, has a morning ritual she swears by. It starts with a coffee - Nespresso and coconut milk - followed by a podcast as she does her make-up. This is followed by meditation, at least thrice a week for 10 minutes, sometimes on the bus or taxi, guided by a subscription app on her smartphone called Headspace.

Ms Tan is among a growing number of millennials here aged 23 to 38 who see value in spending time and money on self-care, many with the help of technology.
