Things to do when you're home alone:

  1. Feeling lazy? You can watch a movie marathon in the comfort of your bed or sofa! Or binge-watch a series/show.
  2. Whether you’re into printed books, e-books, or audiobooks, no one can deny that reading a good book is a perfect way to pass the time.
  3. Need to relax? Have an at-home spa day! Turn on an essential oil diffuser, so you can breathe in a soothing scent while you enjoy self-care time. Combine your bath and mask time and give yourself a mani-pedi. Related post - 10 essential oil blends for better sleep - These blends will help you relax!

Things to do with your family at home:

  1. Stuck in the house with energetic children? Try a classic treasure hunt or scavenger hunt. It's fun and gets them moving! Create a clue to find a location or item, then have another clue waiting at that spot.
  2. Whether it’s Monopoly, Cluedo (Clue) or Scrabble, board games are a great way to spend a rainy afternoon with the family.
  3. Wondering what to do? Consider baking some goodies. From cakes to cookies, cupcakes or brownies, the possibilities are endless. Nothing cures rainy day blues like a fresh batch of cookies!
