    19 Things That’ll Help Take Your Mind Off *Gestures Broadly At Everything*

    Meals, games, shows, arts and crafts... and learning?!

    1. A teeny Lite Brite that'll fit right into the palm of your hand. It has 150 lights and a few designs, so you can create artwork that'll take you back to your childhood.

    2. A rock-painting kit that'll give you a little nature moment and a cute decoration for your house. It comes with four rocks, metallic paint, brushes, and a step-by-step instruction book to create beautiful designs.

    3. A meal kit from HelloFresh that’ll be delivered right to your door — it’ll include everything you need to make a delicious dinner, so you won’t have to go to the grocery store. You can pick from different seasonal dishes, like pesto chicken with lemony couscous, cheesy stuffed meatballs, or Mexican pork tacos! It’ll be super yummy and save you time and money.

    4. A handheld Tetris game that has all of the sounds from the original game, as well as the classic on/off button, joystick, and four-colour screen that’ll take you back in time. It also stands upright, so it looks just like a mini arcade game. (Remember those?!)

    5. A subscription to Disney+, so you can binge all your favourite childhood classics like Beauty and the Beast as well as the new stuff, like The Mandalorian, or the latest in the Star Wars franchise.

    6. A pass to over 80 classes taught by the most talented people in their field. Learn how Serena Willams, Gordon Ramsay, Anna Wintour, Neil deGrasse Tyson and many more do what they do — and teach you how to do it as well.

    7. Or join a skill-building course, so that you can learn something useful in about four to six weeks. There are tons of free classes you can sign up for, like The Science of Well Being, Business Analytics, and Foundations of Positive Psychology. You can also sign up for a paid course that’ll give you extra quizzes and projects, as well as a shareable course certificate upon completion — you know, if you’re looking to beef up your CV.

    8. A spot-the-difference puzzle for eagle-eyed puzzlers looking for a more visual challenge. Look for the unique unicorn, root out a rogue raccoon, and generally find the one thing that doesn't belong.

    9. A robot-building-kit that'll teach you how to make three little goofy friends out of spare parts. It's designed to be used as a springboard for your own homemade creations, so you can upcycle more lil' robots with cute personalities from the bits and pieces you find in your house.

    10. A sodoku book that'll distract you from your problems and give your mind a bit of a workout. Rather than the traditional square sudoku, this book contains 272 elegant puzzles designed to resembled mandalas. They’ll engage your mind and eye in a different way.

    11. A stunning picture book that'll transport you to Italy while you stay at home on your couch. It has beautiful photos of Cinque Terre and the Italian Riviera that are so good, you'll almost feel the sea breeze on your skin.

    12. A double-sided puzzle that'll have you occupied for hours as you try to recreate the Guggenheim Museum or Frank Lloyd Wright's impressive home. For a little added trickiness, the buildings as we know it are on one side of the puzzle and the blueprint of the structure is on the reverse side.

    13. A disposable camera that you can snap some pictures with during your afternoon walk around the block. Save up a few rolls of film and then develop them in fall so you can look back at what you were up to in the warmer months.

    14. A lucite chess set, because your dad was onto something when he made you learn how to play this when you were a kid. Brush up your skills and get ready to take down your opponent, because saying "checkmate" is super satisfying. Games can last anywhere from ten minutes to an hour or two, so get your brain working to out-strategize the person you're playing with.

    15. A secret decoder ring that'll put any amateur cipher to the test. Just spin the ring to find the hidden letter that each number represents and try to break the code. Once you do, you can leave coded notes for your friends and fam to try and figure out.

    16. A memory game that'll keep your mind sharp. Turn over two cards at a time and try to remember where each card is until you get a pair of the same cards. You can play by yourself or, if you’re feeling a little competitive, with a friend.

    17. A Gudetama Tamagotchi that'll hit you straight in the nostalgia. Make sure to nurture the little friend and he’ll eat, sleep, and play! (Ignore him, and, well... you remember what happens, right?)

    18. A mini wand vibrator, because something about a really good orgasm tends to take your mind off of things. It has ten functions, plus a rippled texture on one side, a ridge at the top, and is flat and smooth on the other side. It also has a flexible head that'll really hit the sweet spot, and it can be used underwater if you or your lover are looking for a little extra fun during bathtime.

    19. Or a rabbit vibrator, because two orgasms are better than one. This luxurious toy stimulates the clitoris and G-spot simultaneously and has 12 settings that'll rock your world.

    Your brain and body after doing any of these things:
