EX­PLORE A MU­SEUM

You don’t have to live in a big city to brush up on your lo­cal art or his­tory. Look for mu­se­ums and art gal­leries on your city’s web­site, and use apps like Yelp to find pri­vate gal­leries and artists’ stu­dios. Or try a dig­i­tal mu­seum tour through Google. To search for his­tor­i­cal sites and events, visit Mu­se­um­sUSA.org.

TAKE YOUR TASTE BUDS

ON AN AD­VEN­TURE

Ex­plore a new-to-you cui­sine by din­ing at (or get­ting take­out from) a restau­rant owned by new Amer­i­cans or de­scen­dants of im­mi­grants. Or look for food tours or cook­ing classes. If you’re con­cerned about carbs or in­gre­di­ents, “Look ahead at the menu and ask ques­tions when you get to the restau­rant,” says Paloma Ke­mak, the cre­ator of the di­a­betes blog Glit­ter Glu­cose, who lives in Scotts­dale, Ari­zona.

EN­GAGE YOUR IMAG­I­NA­TION Stretch­ing your cre­ative mus­cles can pro­vide re­lax­ation, says Bon­giorno. Find a play, mu­si­cal, or con­cert to watch. Check out events at li­braries, com­mu­nity cen­ters, uni­ver­si­ties, and col­leges, and con­sider on­line op­tions too. For ex­am­ple, Skil­lShare.com of­fers pho­tog­ra­phy, writ­ing, art, and lan­guage classes.
