While a night out is always a fun time to catch up with friends, we all can use a night in just to unwind from the week. There’s nothing wrong with just staying home tonight and spending time with me, myself, and I. If you’re not sure what to do with your free time, here are a few things you could consider doing to make for an enjoyable evening.
Just Lounging on the Sofa
There’s nothing long with just having a night on the couch, watching some TV or a movie. Think about that Netflix series that you’ve been wanting to watch but never got the chance to. Now is the time to settle into your sofa and throw pillows and binge away. Pop some popcorn or order a meal and just chill out. Even a small space can turn into the ultimate oasis to take in a show or a film. It allows you to shut down your brain and just enjoy something that truly entertains you, whether it’s making you laugh, scream, or cry.
If you’re a gamer, fire up your console or your computer and get into game mode. If you’ve been stuck on a level, give it another shot, or try a new game. CS go, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, has been a fan favorite since its release back in 2012. It’s a tactical shooter game that emphasizes teamwork, strategy, and gunplay. Getting kills in CS comes from recognizing and holding angles, working with a wingman and your group to create a strong militaristic strategy that will put prime players at the top of the heap as they reach the next level.
Playing Around With the Pets
Beyond your hobbies and what’s on TV, a night in gives you some time to catch up with your loved ones, as well as your furry friends. Nuzzle up on the mattress with your dog or cat to get cozy. If you feel like getting active, clear out some of your surroundings for a game of fetch. If your kitten is feeling like exuding some energy, make room for a cat scratcher to let them have some me time.
It’s important that your little pal also has a home within your home. CardboardCatHomes offers cat condos and castles to give your kitty the warmth of their own household. These cardboard cat houses allow kittens to scratch and claw without worrying about doing too much damage, plus they’re made from 100% recycled materials. Cats are natural explorers who love to try new things, so it’s important to introduce new items into their environment. Your pets won’t get bored by having their old little cardboard playhouse where they can find all new things.
A night in is a good chance to do some home makeover work. Take the time to look for some tips for styling your apartment to make some adjustments right now without having to go out to Target or any other home decor store. Shuffling around your workspace to design it to your efficiency could end up helping you in the long run. From moving around lamps or pillows to changing your drapes and adding candles to your coffee table, this can turn a space in your house into more than just a couch and a rug.
If you have some do-it-yourself tasks that you’ve been putting off for some time, get to building bookshelves or finding where they are best suited for your living space. If you’re really feeling ambitious, consider some painting to provide a pop of color to your dining area or kitchen. It’s also a good chance to take inventory of everything you have to get the clutter out of your house, whether you want to sell those items or donate them to charity.
