Ways to Winter Well

Winter can be a hard time for many of us with short, cold days and long, dark nights. This year, however, I am determined to savour it. There is so much beauty in the sparkling frost and silently falling snow, so much sweetness in the cozy warmth of a cup of tea under soft blankets. This season was meant to be a time of rest, rejuvenation, and reflection. This year I want to cultivate that.

Below are a few different ways I've been celebrating winter. I hope they inspire you to find your own ways to savour this beautiful season!

Read comforting or seasonal books

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The witch, and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis

The Hobbit: or There And Back Again by J. R. R. Tolkien

Snowdrift And Other Short Stories by Georgette Heyer

Warm Drinks



Hot Cocoa

Make A Snuggly Space



Heating Pads

Stuffed Animals

Dress For The Weather

Make sure you are dressing warmly enough if you are in cold climates. Taking the time to put on an extra layer or fuss with your mittens can make a huge difference!

Work With Your Hands



Create a collage out of old magazines

Draw or paint


Soft & Warm Lighting



Fairy Lights

Fake Candles

Bake Something Homey


Hot Cocoa Madeleines

Be Introspective & Reflective
