How to Have Fun on a Lazy Day at Home

In this guide, we’ll look at some of the best ways for you to relax on a lazy day at home, something that we all seem to be having a lot of right now! These activities include playing games at top Canadian French casinos, chatting with friends, and more.

As you’re partaking in these activities, just remember to stay safe, don’t stress, and enjoy yourself!

Play Casino Games

Online slot machines, table games, and Live Casino games are available in abundance and can be enjoyed directly from the comfort of your own home. You just need a compatible device and a secure Wi-Fi connection and you’re good to go.

You can choose from a variety of French-Canadian casinos these days, all of which are available in both English and French. The best casinos have hundreds of games, ensuring there is a little something for everyone, such as:

  • Slots
  • Jackpot Games
  • Virtual Scratchcards
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Sic Bo
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
  • Poker
  • Video Poker

Online gambling is completely legal in Canada and has been for a number of years, so you’re free to enjoy yourself! Just make sure you gamble responsibly and stay within your budget.

 Party (Virtually) With Friends

Just because you’re having a lazy day at home doesn’t mean you can’t invite your friends along—virtually, of course.

2020 has been the year of the video conference, with apps like Zoom, Houseparty, Skype, and countless others bringing everyone together. There’s a good chance you already have them on your phone. If not, now’s the perfect time!

You can use these apps to arrange virtual bingo nights, pub quizzes, and even board games. Arrange a quiz and offer a prize, break out a popular board game or strategy game, or try your hand at a little puzzle game or escape room!

Have a Movie Marathon

We’re living in an exciting age for media consumption. As little as a couple of decades ago, watching a film meant going to the cinema or renting a VHS/DVD. These days, you have thousands of movies at the touch of a button and can watch them all day without pause!

When you’re having a lazy day at home with nothing to do, why not catch up on all those films that you always wanted to watch? Binge some classics, watch an entire series of films back-to-back—make a day of it!

IMDB is a great source for top films. This list, for example, shows you the top 1,000 “must-watch” films in the world. Even the most dedicated film buffs will find a few classics that they haven’t seen before!

Lose Yourself in a Book

We all have books that we bought years ago and never got around to reading. Some of you will have just one or two, others will have an entire bookshelf. Regardless of how many you have, now is the time to read them!

Whether you have your eye on a classic American novel, a new romantic comedy or a spine-tingling horror, now is a good time to crack the spine.

If your bookshelf is looking pretty empty, don’t worry. You can get thousands of top free eBooks from Amazon, all of which can be downloaded on Kindle. There are also PDFs available for classic books (from Homer’s Iliad to the works of Edgar Allan Poe) that have entered the public domain.

Your library is a great source too. Or you can just ask some friends if they have any old books sitting around that they are happy to lend you!

Nothing beats sitting down with a good book and losing yourself in a world of fiction or fact.
