10 Essentials for a Cocooning Day
10 essentials for a cocooning day
What is cocooning? According to a definition found in the dictionary, it is "to please ourselves in a cozy comfort". The goal of a cocooning day is to feel so good at home that you absolutely don't want to go out! How do we do that?
Here are my 10 essentials to get there...
1. Find what you want to do
It is still important to plan your cocooning day as little as possible. You have to know what you want to do to relax. You don't need to make a list, but at least have a little idea! Do we want to listen to movies or series? Want to finish a novel? Listening to music and doing some relaxation? In short, you have to think about it a little bit before!
2. Wear comfortable clothes
The key to a cocooning day is to feel GOOD. For that, it is essential to be dressed super comfortable! Pyjamas, jogging pants, a dressing gown, anything you feel good in.
3. Have a cozy ambiance
The ambiance is so important. You have to feel good at home to hang out all day. A little cleaning, light candles to make the house smell good, dim the lights, and you're done!
4. Eat comfort food
Whether it's your grandma's meal or delicious muffins, the important thing is that it is good and comforting for you! I always find it pleasant to cook a few dishes and then enjoy them in front of a good movie.
5. Drink hot drinks
Who says pyjamas and soft clothes, also says a small hot cup of coffee! If you don't like coffee, there's no shortage of options (hot chocolate, tea, herbal tea, etc.).
6. Stay away from all negativity
The cocooning day is there to make us relax and feel peaceful. Therefore, it is important to put aside all things that could tend to interfere with our morals. For example, we do not look at our work emails!
7. Take a good hot bath
It is well known that hot baths are good! Their warmth is relaxing and soothing. For my part, this is how I start my cocooning days. I take a nice hot bath, I relax, and then I feel ready to start my day of relaxation!
8. Get face and body treatments
As with the bath, this little ritual is part of the relaxation session. Like putting on a face mask when you're in the tub and taking the opportunity to hydrate your body well. In short, apply care that you don't do every day. We take care of ourselves!
9. Make sure you stay warm
This point mainly applies if the cocooning day is during the colder seasons. If possible, make a small fire or light the fireplace, have thick warm blankets nearby and good slippers on your feet.
10. Keyword: Comfort
In short, you will understand here that the keyword is COMFORT. For example, if you are going to read in your bed, make sure it is as cozy as possible. If you want to watch movies in the living room, why not put plenty of pillows on the floor and have a big home cinema!
Hope these tips help you have a perfect cocooning day. These days are essential for us to relax, especially during the holiday season!
