FUN AND FREE
Check out your local
church, temple or mosque for activities.
Call every Chamber of Commerce in
your town and surrounding towns for information on activities.
Pretend you're a tourist and find
out what's neat to do in your area.
Need a flat surface to walk on?
Lots of shopping malls open early for walkers before the stores are open.
This is especially nice in winter
when it's nasty out or in summer when it's too hot to exercise outdoors.
Need a free outing? Try the
library - most libraries have subscriptions to a wide variety of magazines.
You can sit in a comfortable chair
and browse, cost free.
Don't have a computer? Check them
out at the library - the librarians will be happy to help you get started.
Most libraries have computers with
Internet access - go to the library, sign in and log on.
Short on money? In addition to
books, many libraries have movies you can borrow for free.
Most libraries also have books on
tape so if you don't feel like reading you can kick back and listen.
Shut in? Can't get out? Call your
local library about getting on the bookmobile route where the books come to you.
Send for catalogs that are free
that might spark an idea of what to do. Wonder what catalogs are available?
Look in magazines that are
interesting to you.
Support groups have activities.
Find a local support group by calling the local hospital, the closest rehab center, the
Chamber of Commerce, or the Department of Social Services.
