Once you've exhausted the usual suspects (board games, movies, etc.), getting some fresh air is the best way to get through an afternoon slump. If you've got a good spot within walking distance, venture out for a stroll to your favorite coffee shop or diner for a hot cocoa date. If the outing requires a ride in the car, pair it with a bundled-up stroll around town or in a nearby park.
