The temperatures have been steadily dropping for the last month now, and there’s a definite bite in the air! When it’s cold like this, there’s nothing quite like kicking back and relaxing at home in the coziest environment possible. While this is a fantastic way to treat yourself, making time like this is actually really beneficial for your health too as it reduces stress levels. So if you really needed another excuse, here are some of the ways you can plan for a comfy and cozy night in at home!
Run a Hot Bath
A hot bath is the perfect way to warm your bones and get relaxed, particularly if you’ve just come in from the cold! You could treat yourself to a bath bomb, some bubble bath or some luxurious bath oil. Pamper your skin and hair with hydrating masks, and soak away all of your troubles. Don’t forget to crank up the heating so that it’s lovely and warm when you get out.
Wrap Up In Comfy Nightwear
You could treat yourself to a new set of pajamas, dressing gown and slippers. Or dig out your warmest night garments from last year. Something soft and fleecy would be extra comfy when it’s cold outside there’s nothing better!
Find Things To Do
You can’t go wrong with a good movie night; you could re-watch all of your favorites or find something new to download. You could catch up on all of your tv shows; there are always so many good ones on at this time of year! Alternatively, you could curl up on the sofa or in bed with a book. No need to visit a bookshop, look online and download one straight to your phone or tablet. Sites like Trade Bit can be useful since they have everything you need in one place.
Don’t Forget Soft Furnishings
Soft pillows and cushions, throws, blankets and rugs will all make the room feel much more cozy. You can buy these on places like eBay, they don’t cost much but make such a difference in the home, particularly over the colder months. You could go a step further and light some scented candles too which will help set a relaxed mood. One of the biggest things people forget is that lighting can change an atmosphere. Stores like Big Lots have some really nice lanterns / lights which could be a great addition to any room.
Indulge in Tasty Food and Drink
Finally, a good night in means indulging in some tasty treats. You could buy some specialist coffee syrups to make your regular cup of joe taste like it’s come right from a coffee shop. You could invest in some good quality hot chocolate. Pinterest has loads of ideas for snacks you could put together if you’re having a couple of friends over this is a great way to go. Or if you don’t want to put any additional effort in, just order a takeaway!
What’s a perfect cozy night in for you? Do you have any nights like this planned over the coming weeks?
