Ladies who are staying by themselves especially single ones... how are you keeping yourselves engaged / motivated ? With the holiday season kicking in, now that social gatherings, travel are not the ideal scenario. I am personally super burnt out from work and not being able to go meet friends etc is getting too depressing.Looking for ideas beyond Netflix ! TIA

I've discovered cooking and baking. I also go kayaking and walk around my beautiful neighborhood.

Oh no OP, I'm sorry. I don't know my neighbors very well. Actually, I never see them but I leave the baked goods anyway. 😁 maybe they think I'm crazy 🤷‍♀️ I don't have a mall either. I haven't lived in cold weather for a few years and forgotten how challenging it can be. What about a cold weather activity? Ice skating or cross country snow skiing? The meal deliveries give me enough food that lasts the week. Each box contains 3 meals for 2, so 2 dinners. Some of them are really good. Since the recipes are provided you can make them other times. I hope you find something you like to do 🤗

Here are some recommendations on things to do. As for motivation, plan out an activity/fun thing to do each week. It’ll give you something to look forward to and feel accomplished about, even if it’s a quick or simple activity. -Crafting (painting, making decorations, jewelry, woodwork, etc) -Books (audiobooks are nice to listen to while walking around) -Paint by numbers (have a few friends who started doing these and enjoy them) -Learn more about something you’re passionate about -Write letters to friends -Foster animals -Workout -Cooking/baking
