What are the holidays and wintery days without watching your favorite movies? You can relive your childhood while watching every festive classic available on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. Don't forget to light up your evergreen-scented candle, bake chocolate chip cookies, and prepare a batch of hot chocolate for snack time while you tune in.

02
Finish The Book You Started

Reading is difficult to fit in when you have so much going on with your weekly routine. A snowy day is the ideal time for finishing that book you started earlier this year. Cozy up on the couch in your pjs with your book and a fleece blanket for an old fashioned snow day, just like when you were a kid.

03
Try A New Holiday Recipe

Experiment with a new recipe that catches your eye on TikTok or Pinterest. This is a great way to get creative and make use of your alone time. Creating something new can be a challenge, but it can also be a lot of fun and quite delicious. Who knows, it might end up being one of your favorites.

04
Create A Winter Playlist

When was the last time you made a seasonal playlist? Consider putting together a winter playlist as you search for new songs that capture your feels this season, like jams from Taylor Swift's evermore album. You'll have some new music to rock out to and inspire you all winter long.

05
Send A Sweet Note To Your Long-Distance Friend

Writing physical notes seems to be a lost tradition, but it's always a pretty cool idea to write and send one to someone you're thinking about. It's such a treat to receive one, and will make your long-distance bestie or family member feel extra special.

06
Do Some Winter Cleaning And Organizing

Most people don't spend time organizing in their house until spring, but why not get a head start this winter? You can bag up old clothes to donate and declutter your home so that it feels brand new. You'll feel productive and satisfied with a job well-done.

07
Treat Yo' Self To An At-Home Spa Experience

Grab your favorite bath goodies and treat yo' self to an at-home spa day. There's no better time to give yourself a bit of TLC. Soak in the tub with a minty bath bomb or polish your nails in a winter-themed pattern. Embrace the peace and tranquility of it all. You'll be snow glad you did.
