20 Things to Do This Winter So You Don't Catch Cabin Fever
Posted on February 05 2019
I get it, not all of us are icemen/women (yet).
The winter makes a lot of people just stay inside and not do much, or just fall flat when it comes to thinking of things to do.
Time is our most valuable asset, and we should spend as much of it as possible doing what makes us happy.
Well, today's blog post is made for people who enjoy being outside and staying inside. I found 10 indoor and 10 outdoor winter activities everyone can enjoy, from baby to teen to adults.
I found some exciting new stuff that's easier & cheaper than you think...
- Go on a winter hike
- Go ice fishing
- Go winter camping and learn survival skills
- Host a bonfire
- Go star gazing (bundle up!)
- Host a snow sculpture competition
- Shovel snow for someone who needs help
- Go swimming in a frozen lake, but be very careful! Ice is unforgiving.
- Go snowshoeing
But if you put your mind to it, there is a lot you can do while cooped up inside...
- Try new workout or dance videos on YouTube
- Learn card or magic tricks
- Go through your belongings and donate what you no longer use
- Learn how to cook new meals
- Read one book a week. Infinite knowledge trumps infinite scrolling!
- Plan your dream vacation
- Plan out your life goals
- Host a slumber/Netflix party
- Take an online class in something you are passionate about
See? Winter isn't all that bad at all.
I view it as a time for massive self-improvement. The choice is mine to zone out on a TV or turn my attention inwards and grow myself as a person.
You could also endlessly Netflix binge, that's cool too :)
Do you have any other off-beat activities that are worth mentioning? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading, stay warm!
