3. Engage in relaxing activities
Prepare a bowl of popcorn, light some scented candles, take a comfortable blanket, and find a movie or a TV series that you love watching. Or you can consider reading that book that you hadn't had the chance or time to catch up lately, with a cup of cappuccino next to you. Or maybe you enjoy petting your cat or dog. You get the picture.
Find suitable relaxing activities indoors that you enjoy most and make the best of them.
