Coziness is when you are in a place that feels like home – whether it is your own home or not. It can be in any type of space – small or big, dark or light, wet or dry. And it doesn’t have to be just one particular space either – you can be in many different places at the same time and still feel coziness around you.
Cozy living spaces are not only about the aesthetics of the home. They are also about simple, cozy touches that make it feel more inviting and comfortable.
Prepare your heating system: If you use a space heater, make sure it is plugged into a power source like an extension cord or surge protector. Avoid using it near curtains or other flammable materials, as the house could catch fire.
Install draft guards: The best way to stay warm is to ensure that there are no drafts around the home. This can be done by installing draft guards on windows and doors so that heat does not escape through them when they are opened or closed during winter months.
Get up and move around frequently: When you feel cold, standing up and moving around is often the best course of action to take.
It can be hard to get out of bed when it’s cold outside, but if you do it right, you won’t even notice the cold. One suggestion is to put on socks before you get in bed.
This will make your feet feel warm and cozy, which will make the rest of your body feel warm too. Another suggestion is to have a warm drink before bed. Hot milk or tea are great for this. If you’re not into that, just have a hot bath before bed!
I’d also recommend putting your central heating on at a low level at all times, to keep your home at an ambient temperature, and setting a timer, so it kicks in, in the early morning, so when you wake up, the house is cosy.
A study by the University of Glasgow found that being at home gives you a higher chance of feeling happy. People who work from home were also found to have a better work-life balance. Therefore, creating a cozy oasis for yourself becomes vital to your mental health and well-being.
