The weather is starting to cool down and pretty soon it will be that time of year again where half the population of Montreal “hibernates” until spring. Yes as true Canadians we can handle the cold weather. And we even enjoy outside activities such as ice skating, tubing, snowboarding and so forth. But let’s be honest. There are some days when the weather is so cold that even the bravest ones won’t step outside. I’m talking about below 20 temperature that the second you step out, your eyelashes freeze kind of weather. Aside from the cold weather, there are days when it’s raining and you just want to stay inside. So here’s a list of things you can do when you’re stuck at home because of the weather.

catch up on sleep

We’re always complaining we’re tired and never have time to sleep. So what better moment to catch up on some much-needed rest? Whether you want to sleep in a little longer or take a 60-minute power nap, give your body some time to rest and recuperate.

read a good book

You know that book you’ve been wanting to read but never had the time? Well now’s your chance!

clean out your closet

There comes a time where you need to clean out your closet and get rid of clothes you no longer wear. Since you’re at home anyways, what better time to get on it and get rid of clothes you haven’t worn in forever? I promise you will feel better when it’s done.

Catch up on your favorite TV show

Been falling behind on your fave show and haven’t had a chance to catch up? Now’s your time!

Netflix & Chill

Because who doesn’t want to Netflix & Chill?

try out a new recipe

Been wanting to try a new recipe but never had the time? Why not try it out today when you’re home? It’s the perfect time to put your kitchen to use!

play a game

Forget TV and staying on your phone the whole day, why not play a game with your partner? Whether it’s a game of scrabble, cards or making a puzzle, have at it! Make a whole day of it!


Nothing feels better when you’re at home cuddled up in a nice blanket when it’s cold out. Grab your best fluffy blanket and cuddle up with your partner or pet. Even if you’re alone, nothing feels as good as cuddling under a nice soft blanket.

pamper yourself

Because why shouldn’t you? Give yourself a facial mask or mani/pedi. Or even take a nice bubble bath.
