Its easy on a cold and snowy day to curl up on the couch with Netflix, a cup of cocoa, and only get up for a snack. Sometimes, that’s really nice. However, all the times, that’s not good for anyone. So what to do when your typical activities are out because of weather – for those of us that don’t love blowing snow and frigid fingers? Well, try to make use of the time to accomplish something that is beneficial for your life, family, and goals. Here is a great starter list that covers physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness!

21 Snow Day Activities

  2. Read a great book that teaches you something new.
  3. Crosswords or sudoku
  4. Write a letter to someone
  5. Craft projects!
