1. Take a hike.
Nothing boosts the spirits like being outdoors. Pull on those hiking boots and hit a trail — or stay closer to home on one of our many greenways. Make it a family affair that could become a tradition!
2. Play a game.
Pull out your Monopoly board or Candyland if you have tikes, and spend some time having fun together. A jigsaw puzzle or a few rounds of cards can work the same magic.
3. Cook something scrumptious.
Whip up something that feels like a real treat. It doesn’t need to be fancy; Rice Krispie Treats would make my kids smile!
4. Watch a movie.
A batch of popcorn and a big screen TV are the next best thing to being in a movie theater.
5. Take a few minutes to be grateful.
Yes, it’s been a helluva year. But there have been blessings along the way — dedicated health care workers, stocked shelves in grocery stores, volunteer mask makers, and so much more. Don’t forget to feel blessed.
