Planning a Cozy, Restful Day at Home

Sometimes a cozy day at home is just what you need to escape and unwind from the rest of the world. Make sure that you have everything you need before your planned day in, so that you can enjoy your quite time uninterrupted. Here are some things to consider.

Physical Comfort

Whatever activities you choose for your cozy day in, you want to be warm and comfortable wile you do them. Be sure to have enough soft blankets for everyone. Light your fireplace if you have one. If you notice that your home seems perpetually drafty, you can have thermal imaging southeast done to pinpoint cold spots that need attention. Making sure everyone has soft, warm pajamas to spend the day in would be an added bonus, and you’ll be ready for a nap if the urge strikes.


Reading is an excellent way to spend a cozy day indoors, but it’s not the only option you have. Do make sure everyone has at least one engrossing book to read, then consider what else sounds fun. You could settle in for a movie marathon or binge-watch an entire season of a TV show you’ve been wanting to see. A few fun board games can bring the whole family together for cozy fun in front of the fireplace.


If you’re watching movies or TV, you have to have popcorn, of course. There’s no need to stop there, though. Grab some premade cookie dough and get ready to eat warm, gooey cookies straight from the oven. Make sure everyone has their favorite mug for tea or hot cocoa. Finish the day strong with a comfort dinner. Your favorite casserole is a great way to bring comfort to the dining room table.

Adventures and outings have their place, but if you’ve been craving more quiet, planning a cozy day at home can give you just what you need to rest and recharge.
