All this winter weather has us wanting to curl up with a good book! In fact, now is the perfect time to take advantage of being stuck at home. Don’t let this cold weather and all the snow get you down.

If work has been busy or if you are overdue for a vacation, now is your chance. Or, maybe you have a few things on your to-do list or some projects you want to get done before you list your home for sale on the Wellesley real estate market. Here are some perfect ways to take advantage of being snowed in.

Take a “Staycation”

When you can’t get out of the house or travel safely, have a “staycation.” Watch a movie, play some games, read a good book or work on a hobby. Put up your feet and take a day or two off.

Unplug from Work

You might not be able to unplug from work for days, but you might be able to turn your computer off and step away from things for an afternoon. Sometimes we get so tied up at work and don’t have a chance to reenergize ourselves. Now is a great time to do that.

Get Some Family Time In 

Between work, school, errands and everything else that is going on, it’s hard to fit in family time. While everyone is home during the bad weather, gather together for a family movie night, play some games or take on a project together. Even just spending some time chatting around the dinner table is a great way to connect.

Take on that DIY Project

We all have do-it-yourself projects that we want to get to. Now is a great time to take some of those projects on. These projects can also make your home more attractive to buyers and even increase your home’s value.

Even smaller projects, like hanging a wreath, creating a photo wall or rearranging your furniture can make a big difference in how your home looks.

Cross Some Things Off Your To-Do List

If you’ve been putting off repairing things like loose doorknobs, squeaky floorboards or a wobbly table, cross them off your to-do list now! Making these kinds of repairs is also a great way to prepare to list your Wellesley home for sale. Small problems can distract potential buyers, so getting them fixed before you list your home for sale is a good idea.

Don’t let this winter weather and all this snow get to you. Now is a great time to take some time off or take on a few projects to prepare your home for listing.
