20 things to keep you sane during the winter

Now with winter clearly here to stay and hibernation mode fully engaged it’s hard to look forward to anything besides seeing green grass once again. Here are some ideas for fun things that you can do to lighten your spirit without even leaving your house or dorm room:

  • Host a movie, poker, video game or board game night
  • Test out a new TV series (recommendations: Breaking Bad, Workaholics, Game of Thrones)
  • Become a baker extrordinaire
  • Take up knitting or crocheting (bonus: warm socks and scarves)
  • Do some plain ol’ reading
  • Start a blog or create a Tumblr account
  • Brainstorm for the perfect Christmas gifts for your family and friends
  • Reorganize your closet (bonus: spring cleaning will be a breeze)
  • Invest in some at-home exercise videos and equipment to help off-set all that baking
  • Sit down and write a bucket list
  • Indulge in a luxurious bubble bath (something that all genders can appreciate)
  • Cook a gourmet meal
  • Organize the junk drawer (and while you’re at it the rest of the drawers in your house)
  • Catch up with distant friends or relatives over Skype
  • Invent something
  • Perfect your favourite warm beverage (be it hot chocolate, café or tea latte)
  • Teach yourself or let YouTube teach you how to play a new instrument
  • Build a fort (no one is ever too old for forts)
  • Have an indoor picnic

Decorate for Christmas (never too early!)
