Cold days are amongst most of us this time of year.  If you are one of the poor unfortunate soul, such as myself, who have to endure snow, blizzards, and low temperatures then you know there is not always the option of going outside. This is a harsh reality for a lot of us this time of year but I am here to tell you there are things you can do to prevent yourself from becoming stir-crazy from being indoors a majority of your time this winter. 


In these circumstances, it can be easy to be confined in the house with nothing to do but to get through those cold winter days you have to keep yourself busy.


I am here to give you 10 things you can do on a cold winter day.


Read A Book

Is there a book you’ve been wanting to read or catch up on?  If so, now would be the time to open up the book and cover up under a blanket with a nice warm beverage.


Start A Project

If you are a hobbyist, now would be a great time to dive right into it.  If you are an artist draw, paint or create some digital art.  If you are a photographer take some pictures indoor and outdoors.  Get those creative juices flowing!



I understand that exercising for some is best done in the gym but there are plenty of exercises you can do from the comfort of your home.  If you have some old workout DVDs, it’s time to dust them off and use them.  You can also go on youtube and find workout videos.  Don’t let a cold day prevent you from getting it right and tight.


Clean and Organize

If you are going to be stuck in the house now would be a great time to clean or organize some clutter you’ve put off.  It’s bad enough being home bound but it’s even worse to be surrounded by messiness and clutter.


Learn Something

With  Google and Youtube at your fingertips, it may be a good time to learn something.  If there is something you’ve been wanting to learn about now would be a good time to do so.  There are so many free and paid classes out there.  If you are interested in learning computer coding check out Codecademy.  Want to learn a new language check out Duolingo. There are also free and affordable online classes you can take on Udemy, Coursera, and EdX.  Time to expand your mind!


Take A Nap

If you rather catch up on some sleep, then taking a nap may just be what you may need to make the time go by.  Catch up on your sleep so you can wake up more refreshed for the next day.


Get On Social Media

Social media is a good way to pass the time.  Spend time on social media connecting with others or check out some good blogs.


Movie Day

Watching movies are a  great time killer.  Gather some movies together and spend the day relaxing and watching some of your favorite or new movies.Cook A Meal


Cook A Meal

Cooking a delicious meal can add some spice in your hound bound life.  Try cooking a meal you never tired or cook a meal you’ve had a craving for the longest.Talk time with friends


Talk Time With Friends

Granted you may be housebound but that doesn’t mean you have to be a hermit.  Call up or text a friend or family member and get caught up on the times.  Gossip or just say a quick hello. 


Although spending a majority of your time indoors on  a cold day is not always ideal, there are plenty of things you can do to keep yourself occupied.  Find something that will kill the time and most importantly do something that will be enjoyable.  Stay warm!
