With winter weather and a recent onslaught of rain, San Fraciscans are in need of some indoor activities that don't require leaving the sanctity of their homes. Here are four stellar activities to do indoors that will keep you warm and safe from COVID-19.

1. Do a virtual wine tasting

If the dreary weather has got you dreaming of sunnier days, Passalacqua Winery offers completely virtual wine tastings in a variety of themes to brighten up your day. There are multiple options to choose. For a personalized experience, the sample sips kit includes three curated 2-ounce pours suited to your personal palate, gleaned from a virtual consultation.

With pickling now a top quarantine hobby—along with jigsaw puzzles and sourdough bread—we asked Preserved, Oakland to provide a recipe that can be made at home. Read the full recipe here.

3. Meditate with The TM

TM, short for Transcendental Meditation, helps channel inner peace through a unique meditation technique. The method is based on "transcending," which allows you to escape your level of awareness into deep bliss. Its results do not go unnoticed. Many have found the method to produce the highest level of tranquility and peace of mind. Studies have found that this meditation produced three-times the amount of self-actualization than leading competitors in the meditation world. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi crafted this platform for the greater good and to help others reach new heights in health and wellness.
