Get out and paddle board! If you have the ability to find water that is not frozen solid then it is time to get out and paddle board! If this does not seem to be an option, check out some of the locale paddle board groups and see if any are doing indoor activities or pools rented.
If you have a dog or a puppy that you will want to take paddle boarding this is the perfect time to get them used to it. Set it up where you would normally spend time (without the fin) and hang out on the board with your dog or pup as you read or watch tv. Have plenty of treats with you so they learn the new board is the most amazing thing ever.
