Abstract Since the outbreak in early 2020, COVID-19 has fundamentally altered many aspects of society and human lives globally. The changes are likely to remain for many years to come. The COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in the least expected way and many countries were caught unprepared and struggled to establish public policies to avoid economic downturn while still providing adequate protection to the people in the initial stage. Various preventive steps were put in place to curb the spread of the pandemic. Malaysia has been praised as one of the five model nations that successfully stopped the virus transmission while safeguarding the welfare of its population. The impact on the mental wellbeing of these preventive strategies on Malaysians is still being felt. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of health behaviour changes reported in Malaysia from the first to the last movement control order (MCO). The behaviour changes observed in this study included physical activity, eating habits, sleep habits, smoking, and alcohol consumption, as well as psychological distress.
