Ways To Keep Busy And Have Fun This Winter
Aah, winter. Whilst it can be pretty fun just re-watching the same series over and over again on Netflix, it soon gets boring, and you need something to fill those dark days when going outside may not be an option. There are many ways to fill the time, however, and they don’t all involve watching the television and staring out of the window wishing summer would come back (that doesn’t work, guys). We’ve put together a list of a few things that you can do to get rid of those winter blues, so read on if you want to have fun this season!
Listen to an album a day
Whatever you decide to do this winter, the Christmas season is a great time to listen to new music, and find out bands and artists that you love. Whether vinyl is your thing or you’d rather stick to Spotify, there is just so much time right now, and finding some new jams wouldn’t go a miss. Mix up your genres, try something different, and you could find something that you’re really glad you’ve discovered. Winter is a great time to get listening, so that you can go to those pub quizzes in the New Year and get every single question right on the music round. Winning.
Try out some new games
There are so many games out there on the market right now, that it can be difficult to choose. If you’ve been playing something like Fortnite Battle Royale for a few months, don’t you think that it’s time for something new? Anime is a totally underrated genre, and there are many Japanese Role Playing Games (JRPG) if you fancy a change from the whole killing-the-opposition thing. These games are quite story-focused, so you can spend a few hours really getting into character. A great way to pass the time, right? Check out AnimeWhiz for more advice for beginners.
Go on a road trip
Look, we know. Going on a road trip is a summer thing, and it sounds like hell in this weather. But don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it! A winter road trip will allow you to see some beautiful sights, particularly if it has been snowing. Get the air con on, get your scarves and gloves out, and explore somewhere amazing near you! Going for a forest drive if you can get to one is a great idea, and if you’ve got your thermals on, why not go for a walk? You’ll see unique wildlife, a beautiful snowy skyline, and you can even have a snowball fight. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Sign us up.
So, there are many ways to keep busy and have fun this winter, and listening to an album a week is one of them. Try out some new genres, and you’ll have new music all year! Trying out some new games such as JRPGs is also a good shout, as you’ll get lost in the interesting stories. And going on a road trip will get rid of that stubborn cabin fever, so give it a try, too. Have fun!
