Four Steps to the Perfect Cozy Moment
Fall is a time where colder weather and changing foliage arrive to remind us of just how quickly time passes. There’s something about the season that beckons us to slow down and soak up the simple things in life—especially those times where everything seems right with the world and you can’t help but feel a sense of comfort.
Perhaps it’s curling up with a good book, warm blanket, chai tea, and getting lost in the plot of the newest NY Times best-seller. Maybe it’s coming in from the cold weather, and cuddling with your pet while continuing your Netflix binge. Whatever your moment looks like, make sure you have all the ingredients to infuse a little “cozy” in your life this fall.
4 Steps to the Perfect Cozy Moment
1. Warm your bones. Cold weather calls for an internal warm-up. Think pumpkin spice lattés, chai tea, hot chocolate, wassail, apple cider, and cappuccinos. Our go-to hot beverage is the #2 most-consumed beverage in the world after water—tea! So many flavors and types, you’re bound to find one that you enjoy.
2. Get comfortable. Blankets are the simplest way to get cozy anywhere and come in so many different weights, fabrics, and sizes that it’s hard to go wrong. Our top pick is most definitely the king of all blankets, The Gravity Blanket. Weighted blankets like the Gravity Blanket are engineered to relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.
3. Entertain and inspire. Your mind is most relaxed when it’s focused on something it actually wants to consume. A good book, your favorite movie, or perhaps you’d rather close your eyes, pop in your headphones and listen to your favorite artist on repeat. Here is one of our favorite playlists for relaxation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xDyPcJrl0c
4. Set the mood. For added cozy ambiance, fire is second to none. The warmth and glow of a flame are a must-have for a perfect cozy moment. If you’re not lucky enough to have a fireplace, a candle will do nicely and provide the perfect scent.
