5 Tips For Getting Extra Cozy This Winter
It’s already winter time which means you may be surrounded by snow, frost, or cold air nipping at your nose.
One of the best things about the winter months would be the fact that you can just stay home and be comfortable.
There’s something so warm and special about being curled up in a blanket, a cup of hot cocoa, and just relaxing at home. While this is all wonderful, you should also try out these helpful tips for getting in some additional warmth and coziness at home.
Begin by focusing on the feet
This isn’t only going to keep you warm, but comfortable as well. Usually, in the winter months, our feet tend to freeze at an alarming rate. Did you know that your body heat can escape through your feet? This is only going to create additional coldness. Look into wearing some fuzzy socks, or maybe look into getting heated floors for your home.
Take a hot bath
Baths are one of the best ways to just get all cozy and warm up. There’s something so rejuvenating about taking a bath. One of the best parts about baths would be the fact that you can add things to the water to make it smell fantastic (plus loads of great perks for the skin too). This can include adding bubble bath soap, bath bombs, or even bath salts. These will help keep you warm and your skin will be loving it too. So why not go burn some candles, read a book, and take a bath.
After having a nice hot bath (or shower) you’ll want to then put on something comfy, right? Pajamas come in such a large variety, and the same can be said for the materials used to make them as well. Even onesie pajamas are quite popular now with all ages. So this could be something fun for you! But even a nice fuzzy robe can be a great option as well for keeping all warm and cozy while you lounge around at home.
Have some soup
The best time to have soup would be during the winter months. Soups are not only tasty and nutritious but they can really help you feel all warm and cozy, even during the coldest months. There is such a major variety in soups as well such as a delicious sausage and lentil soup. You can even add something like sourdough bread to complement the tasty soup. But overall having some soup is a great way to boost the coziness during the winter while you’re at home.
Have a hot beverage
While the soup is a wonderful way to get yourself all full and warm, something else to add on would be a nice hot drink. There are so many choices such as tea, coffee, or even some hot cocoa with roasted marshmallows on top. But a hot beverage is going to really be the icing on the cake in terms of keeping cozy.
Change up your space
This may seem like an odd tip but did you know that the layout and even the decorations in your space are going to heavily base how you feel? It may be high time to make the most use out of your space by trying out interior design. For instance, adding a lot of textiles whether it be blankets, pillows, rugs, or anything else can all impact the “coziness factor” inside your space. The same can even be said about your choices of colors in your home as well.
Dark blue can make you feel chilly while light brown can make you feel calm. So what are some ways that you can create a more cozy area for your home? This could include adding some softness into your home through plush textiles such as throw blankets, but you can even incorporate more designs such as tartan. But there is so much more you can do to your space as well.
Whenever you think of cozy evenings, what immediately comes to mind? For many, it’s going to be a roaring fire. You even check Instagram and you’ll be met with plenty of pictures showing a nicely lit fireplace and a hot drink. But even if you don’t have a fireplace at home, there are other options. Sure, you can buy yourself a firepit but those can be a bit expensive. Instead, you can burn some candles.
Candles can still create that warm ambiance that a fireplace also creates. Whether you just want one candle burning or a whole bunch, the possibilities are simply endless. Another perk of candles would be the fact that you can even burn a nice scented candle and allow the aroma to flow in your home.
