12 Things To Do During The Void That Is Betwixmas

Bored? Same.

You might hate it, you might love it, you might be completely indifferent to it either way – but Betwixmas is coming soon, and you need to be ready.

The period between Christmas and New Years is a divisive one, with some adoring the severe lack of things that need to be done, and others despising the intense boredom.

No matter where you fall on the scale, chances are you’re going to want to do something on those nothing-days this years.

Here’s 12 bits we’ll be doing to pass the time.

1. Book a weekend away. It may be pricey this time of year but it’ll get you out of the house.

2. Give your social media a spring clean. There’s no better feeling than getting rid of all those accounts you’ve no interest in following anymore.

3. Become a Monopoly master… and bankrupt your nanny in one fell swoop. 

4. Clear out your wardrobe – you know you’ve been meaning to do it for months. 

5. Pick up a book that’s been on your to-read list all year. Now is the ample time to dive into a new novel.

6. Rewatch your favourite TV show. May we suggest Desperate Housewives, Lost, Pretty Little Liars, or Gossip Girl? 

7. Get yourself some new plants. Gifting season may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t buy yourself some presents.

8. Loosely plan your holidays for 2024. No need to book anything, but deciding where you want to go is half the fun. 

9. Clean your makeup brushes (you know you need to!) 

10. Take yourself on a solo cinema date. Large coke, box of popcorn, and sitting in the dark for two hours – bliss. 

11. Learn a new skill. Crocheting is all the rage these days, we hear. 

12. Go on a walk in a new place every day. Look up the best strolls to take, grab your jacket, and head out on an adventure.
