So it’s snowing out and you’re stuck inside, high as a kite, trying to keep warm and wishing you could get out of the house and have some fun, what do you do to fend off cabin fever? We all know the usual answers to this question: watch a movie, listen to music, fire up a video game, spend some quality time with your favorite man or lady friend, smoke more weed. That’s all fine and good, but when it’s all you’ve been doing for the entire winter, it starts to get old. Here are a few ideas to spice things up.
Make Some Dank Food
Now I’m sure you’ve all gotten the munchies and stuffed your faces before, but I mean really put some effort in, don’t just open up a bag of chips or throw a pizza in the over. Plan ahead and have some extra ingredients on hand and cook up a real meal from scratch. Too high to operate the stove? Get creative! Take your munchies to the next level and smash up some Oreos, pour some milk over them, and go to town on it. If you’re the gambling type, pick a few random ingredients from your fridge or cupboard and try to find a way to put them together. Disclaimer: I take no blame if your concoction doesn’t taste good.
Take a Shower
No really. If you’ve never taken a shower while high, you’re missing out, Step into that glorious, steamy-hot waterfall of righteousness and let it flow over you. You already know you do some of your best thinking when you’re high or in the shower anyway, so why not take it to the next level? Bonus points if you class it up with some candles and turn the lights off. Just remember to get out before you use up all of your hot water.
Watch the Fire Burn
This may be an obvious one for anybody who has a fireplace in their house, but if you don’t have one, turn on Fireplace For Your Home on Netflix, flip a space heater on, and spend some quality time around the fire with your friends and family. It’ll draw you in and you’ll have some great conversations around your new digital fireplace. Don’t knock it til you try it.
Build Your Very Own Stoner Fort
Blanket forts are awesome. I know it, you know it, everybody knows it. You know what’s more awesome than hanging out in a blanket fort? Hanging out in a blanket fort while high. Besides, you’re not going anywhere and you’ve got time to kill, so why not? Hotbox it up once you’re done, just be sure to keep some Nerf guns on you. You know, to defend your fort from all of your jealous friends.
Reorganize Your House
Where’s the fun in that you ask? Do it while your roommate or kids are away. Whether you move furniture from room to room or subtly shift things a few inches to the side, the look on their face when they walk in the door will be worth the effort and if they get upset with you, just blame it on cabin fever.
Make Some Art
Let your creativity flow and do something creative. Draw a picture, write a song, play an instrument, even fingerpaint if that’s your thing. I’m not one to judge you on your creative outlet, just start doing something and let it flow.
