What to Do When You’re Stuck Inside Apartments in Chico California

girl at windowWait, was that rain we saw or were we imagining it? If it did rain, it sadly isn't forecasted to stick around. Though at this point, we will welcome any and all rain that shows up! Although when it does, the rain it brings with it the inability for outside activities – except for puddle jumping of course! According to Punxsutawney Phil, there is still 2-3 weeks left of winter so there is a possibility of more rain in the near future (here's hoping). While there has been very little rain this season, people have been stuck at home fighting off the flu for the last 2 or 3 months that then turns into a cold. So whether you’re stuck inside your apartments in Chico California to stay dry from rain or because you’re just trying to fight off the flu or a cold, we’ve got some ideas for you to bide the time. Hint: we have more ideas than just binge-watching on Netflix, although that is a solid idea if you want to go that route.

If you want to be productive…

If you’re bad at being sick, meaning you refuse to actually acknowledge you’re sick and need to feel like you’re accomplishing something, start organizing. This is a great time to clean out your closet, go through old photos, sort the mail, or just re-organize the kitchen cupboards to be more efficient. Organize your to-do list by energy level to help you get things done while feeling under the weather or stuck inside because of bad weather.

If you have ants in your pants…

If you just can’t sit still and are itching to be active, head on down to the fitness room at your apartment complex. Getting your heart rate up and feeling the burn will help you relax and calm down a little bit. If you’re feeling up to it, venture out and take a run in the rain. A little water never hurt anyone (unless you are sick- then give your body a rest and take a nap). You could also check the clubhouse schedule to see if there is anything exciting happening, like a game night or other social event. Not only would it help your mind be active, but you could get to know others in your complex too.

If you just really need to be out of the house...

If you aren't sick, staying inside can get a little old. If you want out of the house but still want to be "inside," see if there are any good movies showing at Cinemark.

More of a fan of the live theater shows? The Chico Theater Company is one of the best places to go because they have a pretty regular show schedule,click here to see if one of their shows is playing now. If you feel more comfortable on stage than in the audience maybe you should audition for one of thier upcoming shows!

Plan a visit to FunLand one evening this week or on a Saturday and see how many times you can skate around the "ice" without falling. If the weather is just overcast or cloudy you can even get in a round of mini golf or take your best shot at the batting cages!

If you need a change…

If you just need a break from reality or are feeling the itch to make a change in your life, use this time to reflect. Give yourself honest answers to questions like:

  • Do you need a career change?
  • Are you happy in your relationships?
  • Do you need a change of scenery?

We can help with that last bullet. Maybe you’ve outgrown your current residence or are in a position to upgrade. We offer apartments in Chico California for just about any personality, depending on your likes, wants and needs. Decide these first, then search our Living in Chico properties for the place that’s just right for you.

If you’re under the weather or just enduring the wet weather, it won’t last forever, but you can make the most of your time inside.
