Self-quarantine. Snowstorms. Summer heatwaves. It seems as if there's always a cause to kick off your shoes and hunker down at home, but some things are easier said than done. Humans are social creatures innately, and after a few days — or even hours — stuck inside, it's easy to forget all the enjoyable things we can do at home. Whether you're waiting for flu symptoms to pass, enjoying paid time off, or settling in with the kids for the winter, there's no reason why staying in can't be the most fun you've had in a long time.


1. Plant the Right Garden For You

Gardening is a fulfilling endeavor. Whether you decide to grow drought-resistant succulents or exotic vegetables, design your green space to be as big or small as you need. Apartment dwellers can grow tomatoes or peppers in a pot on the balcony, and herb gardens make lovely additions to windowsills. Backyard gardeners can grow foolproof greens like zucchini, lettuce, or nopales, and aloe vera comes in handy in home remedies. If you have space, consider starting a compost pile. Not only will you generate less waste, but you'll also produce nutritious mulch for next season's crops.
