Several deep breaths and sun salutations are sure to keep you busy. It’s a great activity that will help boost your flexibility, strength, and mind-body awareness.

Paint your nails

Give yourself a little bit of manicure and pedicure. Grab your favorite color and give yourself a little bit of self-care.

Go through your photo album and pick your favorite photos. Then, create a photo collage to put on your wall. If you don’t have any printed photos, that’s fine. You can create a photo collage of your digital photos online and share it on social media!


The book can be fictional or educational. Level up your knowledge or delve into a new world with whatever book you choose. Don’t have hard copies? I’d recommend getting a waterproof Amazon Kindle to read any book you want whenever you’re bored. It’ll save you more money in the long run and great for mother Earth, too!

Play with your pets

Nothing’s better than spending time with your best friend. Play with your pet, give them a bath, or teach them a few tricks.

Your pets would die to spend time with you! Give them a day of awesomeness and fun.
