Don’t be bored this winter! In fact, you are more at risk for depression in the winter due to light deprivation and other factors. Throw caution to the wind—that bone-chilling, artic wind—and do fun stuff. Here are some fun wintertime activities…
# 1 – Go winter camping! This may sound crazy but given you’ve got the right gear, it can be fun in that “I’m overcoming a great challenge” sort of way. At the very least, make sure that your sleeping bag is rated for below freezing temperatures.
# 2 – Catch up on all the Oscar prospects. There is no better excuse to stay inside than watching an incomprehensible art-house film.
# 3 – You know all of those books you’ve been meaning to read? Wintertime is a great time to do it. Consider joining a book club.
# 4 – Cook more. Not only will help you save some cash, you can experiment with different dishes.
# 5 – Go to MeetUp.com and look for activities that interest you! Ever been interested in underwater basket weaving? You might find a group that does it!
