I’ll be the first to admit that winter is my least favorite season. But, there’s something to be said about spending cold winter days bundled up inside! In the winter I look forward to the moment when I can change into my pajamas and get cozy inside. Now that the holiday season chaos is mostly behind us, I’m looking forward to spending my days bundled up inside and focusing on self-care a bit! Today I’m sharing a few ways to spend a winter day inside!
Best ways to spend a winter day inside
SPEND THE DAY IN PAJAMAS WATCHING MOVIES | Like I said above, there is nothing better than cozying up in my PJs at the end of the day! One of my favorite things to do in the winter is to stay in my PJs and have a movie marathon day, complete with my gravity blanket! I ordered new pajamas from Serena & Lily a few weeks ago and I can’t get over just how cozy they are! I’m a big fan of pajama sets and this flannel pair are so warm! They’re made with eco-friendly cotton from Portugal and the quality is so nice. I have worn them so often since getting them in the mail.
COZY UP WITH A GOOD BOOK | It’s no secret around here that I am an avid reader! One of my favorite forms of self-care is getting lost in a good book. I find that I read a lot more in the winter. Let’s face it, being out in the freezing cold isn’t appealing! I would much rather cozy up in my PJs with a good book instead! P.S. My December book review will bye up tomorrow!HAVE A SELF-CARE DAY | Winter can be a bit depressing for me (seasonal affective disorder, anyone?!) so I always like to make sure I am taking a bit of time for myself. Self-care comes in all forms – mental, physical, and emotional – and can affect many aspects of your life, even if you don’t realize it. It’s important to take care of yourself, especially this time of year. A few of my favorite forms of self-care are reading a book, taking a bath, and getting a massage. A day of self-care equals a healthy and happy mind.
TRY A NEW RECIPE | Nick and I really enjoy cooking and trying new dishes! We love experimenting with new pastas, new crockpot meals, and sometimes baking something new. Winter is the perfect time try out a few new hearty recipes you have bookmarked in your cookbook! Nothing better than a comfort meal, especially when it’s cold out!
UNPLUG FOR THE DAY | It feels like I am always attached to my phone, so unplugging is sometimes necessary. Unplugging from my phone and social media is a great way to “reset” and focus on being productive and the things that matter most!
GET ORGANIZED | Sometimes I get a bit of “cabin fever” in the winter. If I don’t want to venture out, I like to go through our house and organize it! It makes me feel productive, I get rid of unnecessary items that we have accumulated & I love the feeling of an organized home!
how do you like to spend winter days?
