In the past, I’ve given you lists of ways to be creative and ways to beat boredom and ways to improve your life.  But today, I just want to share a list of 50 FREE fun things to do.  Self care gets a bad rap sometimes, with people touting it as expensive or indulgent.  I’m hoping this list will prove that neither is true (unless you consider a good game of Scrabble indulgent, and then by all means…indulge away).  
Christmas is long gone (and our decorations finally are too!), and spring seems crazy far away.  I used to think of the months post-Christmas as ho-hum and boring (not to mention cold), but this year I’ve decided that life is too short not to make the most of each and every day, no matter the season.  Some might chalk it up to my recent hygge addiction, others might say I’m just trying out this newfangled lifestyle called whimsy.  There may be some truth to those theories, but really I just like having fun.  Having fun is my favorite.
