#1 Build a Dutch Cardboard Micro Home

The Dutch design studio Fiction Factory sells a DIY kit that you can use to build a tiny house in less than a day. We’re not joking.

The Wikkelhouse is made of sturdy corrugated cardboard panels constructed with environmentally-friendly glue. The designers claim it can last up to 100 years.

Kate, our Director of Marketing, wants to construct one of these tiny beauties to do her meditation retreats in. So, when the fine folks at Wikkelhouse are ready for their first client in the USA, she’s game.

#2 Make Dynamite Vegan Sushi

Barb, our Visual Designer, is always trying out new recipes. Her Asian-inspired chili did not win our annual Chili Cook-off (it’s tough to beat Ryan’s), but it was super good. Barb’s next culinary adventure is to try making the vegan dynamite rolls over at Olives for Dinner.

#3 Throw a Holi-inspired Party to Celebrate Spring

The Hindu festival of Holi celebrates the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. Holi is usually celebrated in March in India, but since we’re still waiting for spring to arrive in Minnesota (brrrr and grrrr), there’s no harm in holi-ing it up as we all need a shot of color in the northlands about now.

Jeanna, our Goddess of Social Media, suggests that you can create your own Holi-inspired celebration with friends at any time to mark a happy life event or an achievement that you’ve worked hard to obtain.

#4 Make a Mini Unicorn

Like Anand Sanwal, we have a thing for unicorns around Quotacy.

We’ve worn unicorn onesies to our office Halloween party and have received etched unicorn wine tumblers for a work anniversary. If you missed the unicorn craze, you can still get in on the mini craze by learning how to sculpt your own miniature unicorn. If you do, make Jeanna’s day by tagging us @quotacycares on Instagram.

#5 Try Volunteer Puppy Hugging

This one is from Natasha, our InsuranceLife Blog Queen, who is a self-described animal rescue fanatic. Animal care centers across the country need volunteers to socialize with shelter animals to help them learn how to trust humans again. Volunteer puppy hugging (or walking) makes for a happy human as well.

#8 Get Stitching

Needlework isn’t just your grandma’s pastime. There’s activist craftivists using cross stitch needlework and embroidery to gently prod society toward…well…gentleness. And, blokes, like Mr X Stitch are also creating wonderful online repositories for contemporary needlecraft enthusiasts of all genders. Make a cup of tea and slow your life down with needle and thread—plus, it’s a safe hobby that won’t impact your life insurance premiums.

Enjoy life.

And, hopefully, we can help you have more time to do that by lessening the time it takes you to compare life insurance quotes and find the right term life insurance plan to protect your loved ones.
