Welcome Winter

 

Are you getting cold feet about tackling the winter season? The dipping temperatures can directly affect our moods and energy levels proportionately. But hey! Every season has its specialities. It is winter and holiday season is fast approaching for family gatherings and winter festivities.

If the tendency to become a couch potato and sinking under the pile of blankets becomes a regular affair, here are a few ways to get the better of them.

 

 

Give the winter touch to your home

 

 

Begin by keeping yourself warm and cosy by bringing out the blankets, mufflers, shawls and sweaters out which were carefully stacked away keeping from dust. Get vibrant and colourful to add cheer instead of shivering and being uncomfortable. As the body tends to lose the significant amount of heat from the head, it is important to wear warm caps to keep you from falling sick. Your home needs a special attire too! A string of twinkly lights is just the right attire to pep up your window and door frames or your bed support to add a little cheer to your ambience. Light up aromatic candles at your favourite hangouts at home which probably would make family members who like to keep to themselves to open out warm conversations, stirring up the winter air. Probably your nosy neighbour may peek in to check out your cosy ideas and may lend a few too. Small plants at strategic locations within your home would purify the stale heavy winter air and improve circulation, providing natural vitality. Green plants like Fikus, Aloe, Spider plant, etc would be great oxygen providers for your cherished home. Give a rustic look to your home by hanging up memories in frames that exude warmth to the winter air. Photographs that make you relive your special moments for endless times.
