GO IT ALONE

Being alone does not have to be lonely. Society may push us to be in groups, but tremendous growth opportunities are possible when we are by ourselves.

 

TAKE A CLASS


Learn something you've always been curious about

at a local college or community center.

GO TO THE LIBRARY (or coffeehouse)

Depending on how much noise you like in your background, bring a laptop or tablet to work on a

project or task away from home. 

WRITE A GREETING CARD

Write and send a note to someone you care about, 

or want to re-connect with.

PLAN A TRIP

Think of a place you've been meaning to go, or person you've wanted to visit, and plan the itinerary. 

LISTEN TO AN AUDIOBOOK

OR PODCAST

Head to a favorite spot (in the house or out).

Bring your headphones.

 

BABYSIT

Offer to babysit a friend's child for the day (or evening). 

Stepping out of your comfort zone may help

comfort someone else.

TWO PEAS IN A POD

Whether you're with your honey, or just a friend, here are some activities you two can do together.

GO TO A COMEDY SHOW

Check out the Funnies coming to your area for a night of LOLs!

(Put your phone away to elevate the experience.)

PLAY CARDS, CHECKERS, OR CHESS

Bring your favorite game to a diner or coffeeshop.

(Don't forget to be a paying customer!) 

VOLUNTEER

Find a local organization near and dear to your hearts,

or one you know could use your time.

GO ON A TOUR


Find an interesting tour in your city, then sign up and go! 

You might be surprised how much you still have to learn about where you live.

GET ON CAMERA

Plan a video call with a long-distance friend.

Wine optional.

THE MORE, THE MERRIER

When you want to include anyone, and everyone wants to be included.

ORGANIZE A GAME, SPORT, OR TOURNAMENT

If you're staying in, play board games, pool, or ping pong. If you're headed out, try frisbee, disc golf, basketball, baseball, soccer, bocce ball, or volleyball. 

 

START A MONTHLY CLUB 

Almost anything can be easy to do 1x per month when planned accordingly. Depending on your group's interests, try a book club, run club, hiking group, crafting get-together, cookie party, reoccurring play date, or jam session.

RENT A CABIN

Rent out a cabin in a location that makes sense for your group.

The more people who stay, the less you pay. Have everyone plan a meal

so cooking and cleaning responsibilities are shared.

FIRE UP THE RACLETTE

Host a dinner party and use a Raclette Grill to cook various food items and cheeses. Everyone (including the host!) cooks and socializes at the same time.

TRIVIA!

Test your group's worldly I.Q. for a game of Q&A

at a local establishment (check for hosting dates and times).
