10 Things to Do Instead of Watching the Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday is the one day of the year where I can count on my husband to do absolutely productive. During the Super Bowl I watch him scream at players on the tv, call out flags on plays before the referee announces them and eat tons of unhealthy foods laden with cheese.


To make matters worse, my two-year-old repeats everything his dad does; almost like a bite-sized apprentice, so there is double the annoyance.

I’m over it and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Instead of miserably watching the Super Bowl here are ten things (that are way more fun) to do instead.

Search for a new job.

Whether you absolutely love your current employer or loathe every minute spent at the office, Super Bowl Sunday is a great time to see what’s out there on the market. The worse that can happen is that you use some of that industry information to leverage a pay increase. Always keep your options open!

Go to the gym.

Let’s just face it, the gym has been a complete mess the entire month of January. You’re probably tired of waiting for a parking space or the elliptical. On Super Bowl Sunday, the gym will be a ghost town, fully at your disposal.

Update your resumè and LinkedIn page.

If you have a side business, you can request to be listed on LinkedIn ProFinder. LinkedIn ProFinder connects freelancers (aka side hustlers) with quality leads in search of your services.

Start on your taxes.


Hopefully, by now you have all the documentation necessary to start the process. I admit it, its not a fun task but its a necessary evil. Plus we may have another government shutdown, which could include the IRS.

Complete that one deplorable task you’ve been avoiding all year.

I’ve been neglecting to clean and organize my bathroom. Not sure when or how this happened but I have tons of products for my skin and hair plus cosmetics just sitting on my counter. Walking into the space gives me anxiety and I want it to spark joy.

Host a girls night in SupHER Bowl party.


Your tribe is phenomenal and you can always count on your girls to hold you down. Invite them over for a girls night in that includes girls chat, wine, and light snacks.

Write a tasks list for the following week.

Granted this should not take an entire 2 hours but you can always get a jump start on those things. Think about curating outfits that you will need for the rest of the week.

Treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure.

If those cuticles could talk what would they say? Mine would say “Nah” because  haven’t had time to go to the salon.

Donate to Souper Bowl of Caring.

Since 1990, the Souper Bowl of Caring has been raising money to donate to local charities. This year, it’s raised nearly $5! Those funds will go back to local charities to support hunger.
