When we have snow or ice days here and you are stuck at home, you can chase the boredom away with these ideas to help you along. Tuesday is going to be below zero another day you might want to stay indoors where it's warm.

Plan a Dream Vacation

Dream a little, plan your dream getaway. Download a fun trip planning app, then get started. Research some landmarks you’d like to see. Find a destination that caters to your specific interests. If you’re taking a trip abroad, start learning a new language so you can get around. even if you can't afford to go now, it may give you the push to save for that trip.

Do A Little DIY

Chances are, there are some repair or DIY projects you know are easy, but you just haven’t gotten around to learning them. Now is as good a time as any. Here are a few common, incredibly simple maintenance projects around the house:

Replace a low water pressure faucet
Fix a leak
Figure out why an electrical outlet isn’t getting power
YouTube can be a big help for projects like these, too.

An experiment in the Kitchen

Get your cooking on, one of my favs is binge-watching an entire season of Chopped, and now you’re inspired to take your own cooking skills up a notch. Have some fun in the kitchen!
If your dish turns out not so tasty, you can always call for delivery during the storm, too. Just don’t be a jerk about it.

Chill Day
