After a long work day and an even longer day loaded with classes, all I really want is to just sit back and enjoy feeling of a blanket over my legs as I sit comfortably on the coach working on an assignment (so nerdy of me), write a new blog post, or catch up on missed YouTube videos, The Mindy Project, and PLL. Since we are transitioning into the real season of cozy (aka winter), I wanted to share with you some ways that I like to unwind.
My evening starts of a with a cup of tea or a glass of almond milk. I need some form of snack too, be it slices up apples, a sandwich, or anything that I’m craving that evening. Now, I am not a person that hates eating food on her bed or the coach, so I go ahead and make myself super comfortable. Food always just tastes better when you eat as far away from the table as possible, doesn’t it?
It wouldn’t be cozy without a fuzzy blanket and PJs. Sounds like a recipe for a lazy day, but I try to remind myself to indulge in the simple pleasures such as having a blanket over me before the rude awakening the next day.
Personally, I am not into candles, so instead I dim the lights if I am getting ready for bed, or I snuggle up with a book/school reading. By the end of the day, the last thing that I want to be doing is homework, but all is well when you have a cup of tea in one hand. I have also noticed that after doing my class readings, reading a normal book has become so difficult. I find myself skimming lines, looking for valuable information rather than enjoying the book for what it is.
My next step is to unplug and do some cleaning up around my room before I head over to the washroom to start with my beauty night routine which is quite simple. After brushing my teeth and showering, I cleanse and moisturize my face, that’s it. If I am feeling fancy, I will apply a face mask and a blackheads nose strip. I also enjoy moisturizing my body in the mean time as I wait because #WinterisComing. While many people like to plan their day before bed, I find it most productive to do that early in the morning.
Lastly, considering that I have unplugged from social media, I fill out my Q&A journal and decide to snooze shortly after.
Hope you enjoyed these tips for a cozy, lazy evening. Let me know what you like to do to relax in the evening.
