how to spend your days

I received this great email from my rental company this morning providing some rad ideas for how to spend your days, thought I’d share:

  • Complete a puzzle. Take on a Rubik’s Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!
  • Start a journal or blog. Sure, it can be about the coronavirus, but it could also be about a specific interest from chess to cheese.
  • If it won’t bother your neighbours: Dust off that old instrument and practice.
  • Text all your exes just in case you have one more thing you wanted to get off your chest.
  • Watch all the really long movies you’ve avoided until now.
  • Download Duolingo, or a similar app, and teach yourself a foreign language
  • Write actual letters to family and friends. After that? Write thank-you notes to service people who you remember went out of their way for you.
  • Learn calligraphy. YouTube can help.
  • Learn how to braid (fishtail, French, etc.) via YouTube tutorial.
  • Interview your grandparents (over the phone, of course) and save the audio. Can you create an audio story or book with that file.
  • Go through your camera roll, pick your favourite pics from the past year and make a photo book or order framed versions online.
  • Dye your hair a new colour. No one else needs to see it if you don’t like it.
