There’s a funny thing that happens this time of year and that’s that days seem to be longer. Obviously daylight hours ARE longer, but somehow this means that days seem actually longer. However not everyone loves being out in the sunshine and not everyone wants to spend their evenings watching soaps. So what else could you do with your lighter evenings?
Build a jigsaw
Something I find really relaxing is making a jigsaw and with lighter evenings you have much longer to work on a jigsaw without squinting in the dark. So long as you have the space, why not start one and continue it on over a few days so it doesn’t stop being fun and gets too stressful. This is something all the family can help with, as well as drop in and out of.
Play Online Games
A major advantage to the internet is that it really never sleeps. This is great for many things including shopping online and of course playing online games. Online casinos can be incredibly fun and relaxing, plus the advantage to doing it online means you can commit to only one game or stay doing it for hours. There are internet gambling review sites too which help you to pick what you might like to play.
Head out for a meal or grab takeaway and watch a movie
As much as we all love a BBQ in the summer, it can be a lot of hassle to organise. Grabbing a takeaway and spending the evening watching a movie as a family, is a great way to break up the norm and give you a change from cooking or eating the same things. Heading out to dinner is also a good way to get out of the house, without really needing a purpose and you can then enjoy and evening walk to and from the restaurant or pub, still in daylight hours.
Curling up with a good book
Although reading is a great hobby any time of the year, there is something about curling up in the evening, while it’s still light outside, and enjoying your read. It doesn’t make you as tired and it doesn’t strain your eyes and you can often feel less sleepy because of that – meaning longer reading time. If you have spare time in longer evenings, why not make the most of your extra time and catch up on the latest releases.
Of course there are many other great ideas but these are just a few to get you started.
