100 fun things to do at home other than mindless eating

100 things to do other than mindless eating at home - Michelle Rogers Healthy Living

When you’re house-bound, it’s easy to let boredom or stress get the best of you — and mindless eating ensues. To make matters worse, being at home means easy access to all the goodies you have on hand. Is it any wonder that over-snacking is a struggle?

There is no magic pill to cure that, but distraction and staying busy helps a lot. So, to that end, I’ve created a list of 100 things to do at home instead of mindless eating while you’re at home. Many are fun and a few are practical, but all are a better choice than downing a bag of chips! They are listed in no particular order.
