Gray Winter Days + My Favorite Hibernation Activities
Ever since last week I have been in major hibernation mode. I’ve had minimal plans with friends and if I’m not in a meeting or working out, I’ve been at home staying super cozy as I work.
My favorite ways to hibernate?
I get in comfy clothes (usually these sweatpants or these leggings plus this amazing Old Navy sweater find and then my slippers or favorite cashmere socks), cook a hearty meal (current favorites on rotation are this risotto and this bolognese), pour a glass of wine, light multiple candles (currently I’m loving Otherland), get under the coziest blanket I own and then turn on Netflix (obsessed with Schitt’s Creek right now and also blew through the most recent season of Grace & Frankie) or I watch a favorite feel-good movie on Amazon Prime (included on repeat for me are The Holiday, First Wives Club, Roman Holiday & Father of the Bride). I only recently discovered you can purchase your favorite movies on Amazon and then my new-ish Samsung Smart TV syncs with my account and can stream them – brilliant!
Then I end the night either with taking a bath or by getting into bed and reading a bit (trying to do this more frequently and start it earlier in the evenings as I strive for earlier bed times this year!) I am about 100 pages into this book and enjoying it so far! (The author wrote Big Little Lies.) It’s been so, so chilly this week and I’m loving the excuse to get super cozy.
What about you guys? What are your guys’ favorite ways to hibernate?
