As we fast forward to the chillier months of the year, the temperatures are plunging to below freezing levels and earlier darkness leads to longer nights.Soon you may roll over in bed and glance out the window to the sight of three feet of fresh snow in the morning. As winter settles in, be prepared. ¬†There is nothing more relaxing than burrowing into your warm and comfy bed for a few extra hours in the mornings. In fact, you may be snowed in for days on end with little warning.There are several important things to do during the winter months so you can take full advantage of hibernation season. Here is the SHEEX guide to prepping your home for extended periods of rest and relaxation:
Make Your Home Winter Friendly¬†
Is your home winter ready? You can count on colder temperatures, but try to avoid wasting extra money each month on a substantial heating bill. On a cold day, take a walk around your home and find the drafts. You can trap more heat inside by caulking cracks, investing in rubber seals or plastic insulation, and installing thick drapes along your windows. These measures will keep heat in, and the drapes will keep light from waking you prematurely.Warm up those chilly hardwood floors with throw rugs or a runner and don‚Äôt forget to set your hibernation mood with lighting. String lights and a variety of candles can make it cozy but if you suffer from the ‚Äúwinter blues‚Äù add extra lamps with some LED smart adjustable, multicolor light bulbs so you can set your own mood.
You cannot properly enjoy a snow day if you find yourself running low on basic necessities, so stock-up in advance. Load up on non-perishable meals and dry snacks to keep the cupboards full during a blizzard. Also, buy a kettle if you do not own one, and have an assortment of hot drink options like cocoa, cinnamon spice tea, and coffee available in your kitchen. Nothing will warm up your hands like cradling a steaming mug of hot cocoa from the comfort of your bed.
Snuggle Up in Bed
Creating the perfect sleep retreat during the winter months involves a delicate balancing act. You naturally want to layer sheets, comforters, and throw blankets to fight the winter chill.
