if cannot find job, at most go do grabfood, lower expectations in daily life.
Sounds tough. Good to have substantial savings before retirement age. Singapore should not have another future single elderly dying alone in their one room rental unit.

did not take up the recontract offer after contract end, decided to take a break first after travelling is open up after covid. lucky for me, im single with no commitments and parents are still healthy.
I'm also at a similar position.
40 years old. Quitting my new job after joining for 6 months by the end of this month due to mental stress.
I'm married with no kids. Wife earns enough to spend herself
We live in HDB with existing loan of $240k and no car. We don't spend alot other occassional holidays and food.
I have $170k cash savings and a further $20k in investments
Taking a year or two off but am worried about finding a new job.
Worse comes to worse will resort self employed jobs like property agent or financial consultant

Honestly one should consider retiring in malaysia.
Way things are going with inflation in singapore only the rich with at least $5m savings can afford to retire in Singapore. Otherwise you're better off renting out your HDB and living off your HDB rental in Malaysia. Average 4 room flat in singapore can be rented out for $3k p.m. which would translate to myr10.3k per month which is decent in malaysia

If you are worried you cannot find a job in the future, why quit your job without coming out with a plan in the first place?
Worrying something yet to happen can let own self goes into depression.
After age 40, within the period of 11 years, I quit 4 jobs. However, I did not secure any job in advance prior I resigned.
Those jobs I accepted after age 40, I was still given good salary increment, even though I was already jobless.
I could be fortunate in my job hunting, but importantly must able to think positively and cannot be rigid in thinking. All roads lead to Rome.

Find a lesser stress job instead of taking a 1 , 2 years break.

Staying in my current job is causing me mental and physical health issues. Already my blood pressure is 150/95, chest tightness at times, anxiety issues and sleepless night. Go on for a few more months i scared I'll die of heart attack. I don't think its worth dying for the company even though it pays ok.
