What’s cozier than curling in front of a fire with a good book on a cold day?

3. Organize Your Pantry
Is your kitchen messy or cluttered? Turn on music and organize your pantry, cabinets, fridge, and freezer.
Throw out expired canned goods and foods, and get rid of cracked, rusted, worn-out containers and pots and pans.
Let your creative side out by exploring new hobbies!
Try painting, playing an instrument, knitting or sewing, woodworking, scrapbooking, or really any new hobby you find interesting.
9. Create a Budget
This might sound boring, but having a good budget is important!
Sit down, either by yourself or with your partner, and go over your finances so you can come up with a budget that works for your household.
Baking taps into your creativity, too! Scroll through our dessert recipes on the CleanFoodCrush blog and save a few you want to try.
These can be treats for you and your family, or you can give them to friends and neighbors!
11. Start a Journal
Journaling is good for your body, mind, and heart, whether it’s a health journal, productivity journal, gratitude journal, dream journal, or simply a personal diary.
This can be an act of self care or meditation and may also help further your health goals. So, pull out one of those empty journals you never use and start writing!
12. Challenge Your Brain
You’re never too old to learn something new! Utilize the endless resources online and learn a new language, such as ASL or Spanish, or teach yourself how to dance. Also, challenge your brain by doing puzzles or learning a new game like chess or sudoku.
13. Write Letters
When was the last time you received or wrote a handwritten letter? Take some time to sit down and write a letter to a loved one! It’s a simple act that will brighten their day.
14. Indoor Scavenger Hunt
If you have kids at home going stir-crazy, get creative and come up with an indoor scavenger hunt for them to do! It’s a fun activity to engage your children in and make memories as a family.
15. Movie Night or Game Night
After a long day of scavenger hunts, meal prepping, exercising, and practicing self care, come together as a family and wind down by having a movie night or game night.
Light a fire, make some hot cocoa, and turn on that movie you’ve wanted to see or play the new board game you got for Christmas!
You may love winter, or this may be your least favorite time of year, but there are several ways to make it memorable, fun, and productive!
Fill your time with positivity and the opportunity to transform what might be a less-than-ideal situation into something fantastic.
