Arts, Crafts, and Bright Ideas
Learn to do Nail Art.
Draw pictures for seniors at Waveny Care Center.
Knit or crochet.
Look at yourself in the mirror. Attempt a self portrait with pencil and paper.
Coloring books: They’re not just for kids!
Learn how to braid (fishtail, French, etc.).
Learn origami. Make cranes for your loved ones.
Actually try to reproduce something you see on Pinterest. Probably fail. Try again.
Fold a piece of paper into a fortune teller you put your thumbs and pointer fingers into. Proceed to tell fortunes.
Complete a puzzle. Take on a Rubik’s Cube. Or maybe a crossword puzzle!
Finally read the rules to those long and intense board games you’ve never played with the family. Encourage the family to play.
Memorize the periodic table. You never know when that will come in handy.
Attempt things with your non-dominant hand, from writing to brushing your teeth. And challenge your family.
Try moving in super-slow motion. It’s OK to laugh at regular speed.
In the Kitchen
Host an International Dinner Night.
Put together the most attractive charcuterie board possible, but you can only use foods you already have in your fridge and cupboard.
Perfect Grandma’s bolognese recipe.
Organize your spice rack alphabetically or get crazy and do it by cuisine.
It may have been canceled, but you can still make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day.
Have a space in your home where all of the Tupperware goes? Organize it and actually match lids to containers.
Healthy and Happy
Go on a health kick and learn how to cook new recipes with ingredients you may not be using already, from miso to tahini.
Meditate. Try lying down with your eyes closed, palms up and while focusing on your breath. Or, spend 20 minutes sitting cross-legged and repeat a soothing word to yourself in your head.
Face masks, moisturizers, oh my! Treat yourself to a 10-step skin care routine you don’t have time for during a normal work week.
Try out at-home workouts or yoga with the family.
Acquire a foam roller and treat yourself to some physical therapy.
Stretch. Work on your flexibility. It’s possible to get the splits back, right?
Take deep breaths; in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Sleep. Get lots of it.
Take a bubble bath.
Shower your pets with love…walk, run, bath and belly rub time!
