Take up a new hobby
Staying indoors more means more time for yourself. So why not use that time to work on your hobby or even better, take up a new hobby? It could be something you wanted to learn for a long time, but never got the time to work on it, or something you already know but due to your busy schedule, never really have the time to polish on it. Try your hand at cooking your favourite meal or baking that delicious fudge brownie you’ve tried at a restaurant and been wanting to make it ever since. If you’re into music, learn to play a new instrument, if you’re in the mood to do something creative, you could start with some indoor gardening as well. You have so many options, and finally all the time you ever needed, so start now!
Redecorate/De-clutter your room
If you’re one of those who have already wasted their free time doing nothing this winter (you’re not the only one), maybe it’s time for you to actually get out of your cozy bed and do something productive – even if it’s to just de-clutter your room. Your room might even start resembling the claustrophobic stores at Dhaka College, after you’ve been piling clothes in every corner of your room. But it’s time you stop being a lazy bum and utilise this time to de-clutter and revamp your room. Get rid of items that you no longer need, donate clothes you barely wear, and finish off by giving your room a makeover.
Fitness is the key (physically/mentally)
Stop being a couch potato, already? You’re here binge watching all the shows on Netflix, while the rest of the world is busy going to the gym or playing some kind of sport, to get fitter and making themselves better in every way possible. That doesn’t mean we’re asking you to go outdoors, and start running. You can even stay indoors and start your daily workout routine. Start with 10 minute workouts, and increase that time gradually every day. But getting fitter doesn’t only have to be physical. Before getting to that, you first need to be mentally fit as well. Yoga or meditation can always give you the mental strength you need, and soon you’ll realise that you can achieve anything and everything you want.
Start painting or work on a DIY project or try knitting, there’s so many things you can do, instead of just sulking and complaining about the bitter cold outside. And it doesn’t always have to be a sole project, you can get your family and friends to join and help you out. In that way, you get to do something creative and even spend some quality time with your loved ones.
