7 Things You Can Only Do in Your Own Home

What do *you* do when you're home alone?

Shares

Many of us do things differently when no one is watching or when we are surrounded by the people that we love. Without the fear of being judged or the pressure of pleasing someone else, we can be as simple, silly, and real as we would like to be.

Although we all come home to different kinds of places, the things that we do within the four walls of our private haven often remain the same. Here are the seven things that most of us do in the comfort of our own homes:

  • Remove "unnecessary" pieces of clothing

Some men like to take their shirts off when they get home. On the other hand, most of the women that we know like to remove (or at least unhook) their bras as soon as the front door closes behind them.

  • Drink straight out of the pitcher

We know, we know. This is uncouth and unhygienic. But, most of us would be lying if we said that we have never done this once or twice before, especially when we don't want to reach for a drinking glass. 

  • Show off outstanding flexibility

Speaking of reaching for things, have you ever noticed how most of us would avoid sitting up, standing up, or moving more than an inch while we're on the sofa? If we want to change the channel or turn the volume up, many of us would rather pull the remote control closer by leaning, stretching, and dramatically contorting our limbs.

  • Put our feet up

Another thing that we often find ourselves doing at home? Putting our feet up! Although this is a habit that would annoy our prim-and-proper mothers, you have to admit that there is nothing quite like the feeling of bringing our knee closer to our chest while watching TV.

  • Take a shower before (or after!) dinner

If you are just hanging out at home with nothing to do and nowhere to go, we're almost 100% certain that you won't even think about taking a shower until 5 PM! After all, who wants to take a shower when you have chips to eat and movies to watch?

  • Sing in the shower

Once you've finally dragged yourself to the bathroom, you might catch yourself singing your favorite songs underneath the showerhead. You know you're in your own house, condo, or apartment if you start belting out hits by Adele, Taylor Swift, or some other artist at the top of your lungs. 

  • Wear the oldest shirt that you own

What do you wear when you are safe inside your own sanctuary? Most of us would pick out something that we have had since we were in grade school or high school! While that shirt may be old, ratty, and full of holes, it is usually the most comfortable thing in the closet.
