Winter break. A time of relaxation. No school, no work, just time to do whatever you want.
If you’re suddenly realizing your only prospects are binge watching Netflix, we’ve got you covered for those moments when you’re able to pull yourself off the couch.
Try A Winter Sport
Sports like ice skating, skiing, and snowshoeing can be intimidating the first time, but they’re so much fun once you get the hang of them! You can choose whatever best suits your abilities and enjoy trying something new, or revisiting a favorite pastime if you’ve done it before.
Learn A New Skill
Learning a skill is a great way to boost your creativity and brain power. Whether you decide to pick up an instrument, a paintbrush, a wood burning kit, or finally break out those knitting needles you got years ago, you’ll be entertained for hours. Plus, at the end you’ll have something to show for your work. It may be a lopsided scarf, or an illegible wooden sign, but you’ll have the pride of knowing you made it yourself.
Bake Something From Scratch
Delicacies like macarons, chocoalte souffle, and gnocchi are things that we don’t often have time to make. When you do enjoy them, it’s usually from a restaurant or shop. Why not take the time to make it yourself? You’ll be amazed at how wonderful homemade pasta tastes, or how rewarding it is to serve cookies you make from scratch.
Redecorate Your Room
Wallpapering a room may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. There are tons of new peel and stick options for walls that can transform your room in minutes. The White Brick NuWallpaper gives a loft feel behind a bed, the Birch Tree design adds an element of nature, and the Kolkata Blox create a cozy, Nordic feel.
Clean Out Your Closet
If the recent holiday wardrobe additions have your closet overflowing, maybe it’s time to do some winter cleaning. Who said you need to wait for spring? Having a clean closet will help you get ready faster in the mornings, will keep you more relaxed, and you can donate your old things or sell them for a little extra spending money!
