Winter is right around the corner and with that comes a lot of time spent at home. Whether you live alone or with family, here are a few ways to enjoy the cold season spent indoors:
Having a movie night is the best way to spend your time indoors, especially when you’re snowed in and can’t get to a movie theater.
Make some popcorn, grab all the cozy blankets and pillows, and throw on a holiday movie! Here are a few of our favorites:
- The Holiday Calendar
- Holiday in the Wild
- A Christmas Carol
- Home Alone
Elevate your movie night even more by lighting one of our holiday scents. Our Peppermint Bark candle with notes of peppermint, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg is perfect for bringing the buzz of the holidays in from the cold, revitalizing your mood and your space while you cozy up to a good movie.
Cook your favorite seasonal meal
Another way to enjoy the indoors is by cooking your favorite seasonal meal. If you live with someone, have everyone chip in or cook their own favorite holiday dish to make it an experience.
It can be something as simple as a yummy warm soup, a batch of homemade cookies, or even a quick mug of hot cocoa. Sharing a warm meal during the cold season is always enjoyable for everyone.
Find a cozy hobby
Whether you love reading books, knitting a new winter scarf, or crossing some winter cleaning off your to-do list, find an indoor hobby that helps you feel cozy in your space. Try getting in the holiday spirit by crafting your own decorations. This is a great way to enjoy your time spent indoors.
Take care of yourself.
For some, the cold season tends to bring out a bit of seasonal depression. It’s times like this when it's important to remember that it’s okay to feel sad. Finding cozy indoor activities that you enjoy is an important part of caring for yourself during the winter.
Here’s your reminder that you don’t have to be productive. You can slow down and do things you enjoy. Put your mental health first and trust that God is right by your side, guiding you towards better (warmer) days.
