Brrr… winter is here! As a cool chill begins to settle in, we move many of our activities from the outdoors to inside, which may make some feel dreary and bored. Never fear! Consider any of these winter activities to keep busy, healthy, and in high spirits!
Visit a Museum
Museums usually offer discounts for senior citizens or free admission, so they’re the perfect winter activity for seniors. Invite your friends and family to check out exhibitions they’re sure to enjoy! There’s a museum for just about everything that piques your interest. Most importantly, walking around the exhibits is a great way to get some exercise while learning exciting new facts and information.
Plan a Game Night
Playing games is a great activity for any time of the year, but especially in the winter as most require you to be indoors. Join a bingo or scrabble group or host one at your place! Get a group of friends and family together and see who can wrack up the most points. By playing games, you can build connections and strengthen bonds! If you’re hosting the game night, don’t forget to pick a prize for the winner, even if it’s just bragging rights or choice of the next game! A clear goal will make everyone motivated to try their best.
Gardening is a great hobby to have, even in the winter! How? An indoor garden is just as fun to nurture and cultivate and you won’t have to deal with the unpredictable winter weather and chill. Consider growing your own vegetables, fruits, or herbs as motivation to eat healthier… Or if you want something more simple, plants and flowers are a great way to add pops of color to your home. Doting on a garden can help you relax and destress, reduces the risk of dementia, and serves as the perfect way to get low impact physical activity. Worried about the toll of indoor gardening? Consider visiting a botanical garden instead.
