Activity ideas for the week of 

December 12-18

The following schedule is just a guideline. There is no right or wrong way to do this. If you do not enjoy something - skip it! If you loved it, do it again.
Try adding in a social element - schedule a phone call with friends and do the same activity together or talk about it after you have done it.
