Winter is nearly upon us and as much as I love the great outdoors, I absolutely cannot stand being cold! This means it’s inevitable for me, and many of us, to start spending a lot more time indoors. Aside from wrapping up warm to attend a fireworks display, I’d rather be snug at home with the log fire roaring if it’s cold and dark outdoors. It’s only a matter of days before the clocks go back and darkness will soon begin at around 4pm.
To make the most of those long evenings indoors, here are a few ways to entertain yourself at home:
Online Bingo (for free)
If you’re feeling lucky check out the list at Boomtown Bingo of no deposit bingo sites. These are sites which have a no deposit offer, meaning you can play bingo for free for a chance to win some real cash. Boomtown Bingo have done all the hard work by trawling the web to find all the best no deposit bingo deals for you and creating the ultimate list. Park yourself on the sofa, pop on your favourite TV show and try your luck at winning at bingo for free.
If you never normally have enough time to cook as you’re not usually home much, take this opportunity to perfect your culinary skills. Make those dishes you’ve been longing to try, but didn’t have the time for in the summer. Make batches of hearty vegetable soups to see you through the cold months ahead. Take this time to slow down and enjoy cooking, rather than seeing it as a chore.
Have a clear out
Forget a spring clean, how about a winter clean? Go through your summer wardrobe and get rid of anything you haven’t worn for the past year. Give it to charity shops or sell on eBay to make some extra cash in time for Christmas. If you’ve got any unwanted gift cards you can sell them for cash on Zeek.
Switch the TV off for an evening, light a scented candle, cover yourself with a throw, curl up and stick your head into your favourite book. Let your imagination take you on an adventure in your head with the words on the page. Switch your phones off and have a digital detox for the evening to really recharge and relax whilst you read.
There’s nothing quite like binge watching an intense box set with good snacks and good company. Long winter evenings are the best time to get hold of those box sets you’ve been dying to watch and as it’s dark outside you’ll not feel guilty about spending time indoors.
If you’re going to be stuck indoors a lot, then it’s the perfect time to redecorate or touch up that wall you keep putting off painting! Make the most of being indoors now and getting your home up to scratch, so you can spend plenty more time outdoors once spring rolls around next year.
Yoga is great for fitness, meditating, reducing stress, toning, weight loss, flexibility and so much more. Search YouTube for free videos tailored to your needs, be it time or the level you require, and practice in your own cosy living room without needing to leave the house.
Write a letter
Take this time to stay in touch with loved ones. Write a letter by hand to a faraway friend or elderly relative. Why not take the time to really write a personalised message in all your Christmas cards to update loved ones?
