Write thank you notes. 

Send that overdue thank you note! Even if you think it’s too late, it’s not. Sometimes checking in with someone you haven’t in a while can go a long way and make you feel better in the end.

Back-up your photos. 

Have you meant to back up your photos, but takes forever to load them all in? Now is your chance to make sure that all your memories with friends and family are safely stored.

Have an indoor picnic.

Have yourself an indoor picnic with a friend full of all your favorite foods. You can binge-watch your favorites movies or shows while spending time with them.

Do Pilates.

If you can’t go out to your Pilates class, bring Pilates to your home. Don’t worry if you don’t do Pilates, there are other helpful exercise videos online.

Listen to podcasts.

Listen to educational podcasts or motivational talks on your downtime. Podcasts such as “Clark Howard” and “Ted Talks” are very informative and inspiring.


Bake all your favorite sweets for you and your family while listening to your favorite tunes. This is a great way to bond with those you haven’t in a while.
