1. Binge watch a season of a show you’ve been meaning to watch.
There are too many options to list, but you could start a Netflix original like House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black. Take it back a decade and watch Sex and the City, The Wire or The Sopranos. Just make sure you watch a whole season.
2. Go outside.
It’s cold, I know. But bundle up and go out there. It’s a winter wonderland!
3. When you’re outside, do something.
Make a snow angel, catch snow flakes on your tongue, get in a snowball fight. The options are endless.
4. Meet up with a friend who lives close to you.
The Polar Vortex 2 is more enjoyable with a friend. Plus, you can throw snow at each other, which is fun no matter how old you are.
5. Take a #snowfie.
Yes, that is the official hashtag for a selfie of you in the snow. Get creative.
6. Take a picture of your pet in the snow.
Or a Vine or a video. Animals seem to love or hate the snow, but either way, they look so cute out there.
7. Make a crockpot recipe.
Brave the elements and buy the ingredients for a Pinterest soup recipe, or just grab a bunch of ingredients you have in your fridge that you think would taste good together. Leftover rotisserie chicken with some chicken broth, carrots and celery makes a tasty, quick chicken soup.
8. Drink something hot.
Hot chocolate. Hot apple cider. Hot tea. Add some alcohol if you don’t have anything to do tomorrow, or even if you do. Here’s a convenient list of hot alcoholic drink recipes. You’re welcome.
9. Take a cat nap.
Bundle up with a good book, or that TV show you’re binge watching, and let yourself drift off for a bit. You won’t be going outside for a while anyway.
10. Charge your electronic devices.
You never know when the power may go out, and you don’t want to be without your precious cell phone.
11. Play a game.
Pick a game, any game. It could be a card game, a computer game, a video game.
