While summer brings happiness to my life, Winter brings snow and rain. Sure, first rain is always very exiting, the smell, the solid excuse to stay home… But after a few times of staying home and being a total bum I’ll get sick of it. I’ll be extremely bored from lack of challenge.
Personally, being half millennial, half adult? It’s to stop my phone addiction and actually get creative with my time. Nonetheless, I looked for things to fill those freezing days and may have found too many 😉 Now I can’t choose between all the possibilities!
I’ve listed the activities in categories, so if you don’t want to try a DIY, you can continue to winter recipes 🙂
Organize Your Home
You have all this time to spare, so get motivated and take charge of your home!
Pick Up A New Hobby Or Skill
Every time I see a cool project or a DIY I wish I knew how to do all sort of stuff that I can’t. So winter is a great time to actually learn some of these skills!
- Learn to play an instrument.
Guitar is a popular and easy choice.
I love these coloring posters. So much crazier than a plain coloring book!
- Drawing & Doodling
You can watch Youtube videos or go pro and get an instructions book.
- Water coloring
I love writing as a hobby. There are many positive influences of writing, and enough guides to get you started.

This is a skill that will be a lot of fun and effective as well. Try Skill Share and learn from the best if you are serious about mastering it. As a beginner you can start with youtube videos and see where it takes you.

Eat & Drink
If you decided to take on cooking, Consider starting with one of these wonderful winter recipes:
- Make hot chocolate
- Bake an eggnog cake
- Bake banana bread
If you’ve just started experimenting with baking, banana bread is the perfect recipe to start with!
- Make soup
Soup is such an easy way to start cooking, most recipes are very simple! Pinterest is filled with amazing ideas.
- Order food delivery service
Defiantly one of the easiest ways to master cooking very easily. I order Blue Apron from time to time. They send you the exact measurements you need, so no food goes to waste. In addition, they will send a beautiful card with ingredients pictures and direct instructions.

Even tho I want it to be, winter is not an excuse to not work out. Youtube is full of easy workouts you can do at home.
For someone who can’t stand the cold like me, it doesn’t take snow to keep me home. Diverse options of things to do is so important to have on hand so you won’t end up with your phone in your hands.
