Do you love cooking? Try a new recipe, or whip up a fancy dinner for one. If you don’t feel like doing dishes, treat yourself to a meal out.

Of course, there are all the old standbys — movies, books, new workouts, and the projects you’ve been putting off for months.

If you’re not stuck indoors, go for a walk and take in the natural beauty of winter. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, take a trip!
