5 Ways to Make a Snow Day Meaningful
We woke up to a big winter storm today in NYC. We could sit around and watch Netflix OR we could be productive. How about a little of both? Here are our suggestions for making a snow day meaningful.
1. Bake. Don't worry if you are out of an ingredient, there are plenty of recipes on google that can be made without eggs, flour, etc. These are some of our favorite baking projects:
2. Go for a Run. Even if it is just for a few minutes. There's not much better than making fresh running shoe tracks in the snow. It doesn't matter that your Garmin will be under several layers of clothes - there's no reason to look at it when running in the snow. Snow running is about strength, not speed!
3. Ride the Trainer. Working up a sweat always makes a day better. We ride the trainer all the time, not just on snow days. It's our most effective way to exercise without leaving the house. Here's a guide to Trainer Riding and a sample workout.
4. Meal Prep. This is always something we think we're going to do, but it rarely happens. No excuses on a snow day though. Here are some good make ahead recipes to try:
5. Find 5 things to donate. Start with an easy target. Anyone else have an overflowing kid' book shelf? Or go for something more challenging. That bike clothes drawer?
