Even though winter is ending soon, it does not mean the cold is. While we face the last couple of weeks of winter there are many things you need to do. You might have been counting down the days until spring, but make the most of these chilly and cloudy days. Grab a blanket and a glass of hot chocolate, and do these five warm indoor activities for those rainy winter days.
1. Hot Chocolate
This one might seem obvious, but what if I told you that having a cup of hot cocoa is more than chocolate powder in warm milk? I'm sure you have left over hot chocolate from November and December, so it's time to finish them off. First off, there are a variety of flavors, from White Chocolate, Pumpkin Spice, Mint, Caramel and the list goes on.
And you don't have to settle for regular milk! Mix it up using almond or coconut milk. Lastly, the best part is the toppings. By adding some whipped cream and a cinnamon stick, a regular cup of warm chocolate powder in milk becomes more like a dessert. So when it is too cold for an ice cream party, you can have a hot chocolate party instead!
Now that you have you hot chocolate, it is time to relax. Wrapping up in a warm blanket with a hot drink and some calming music is one of the best ways to spend and indoor kind of day. Especially if you have school work to do, background music can help fill the silence of late night studying. I created a Chill Pill playlist on YouTube for some relaxing vibes.
Soon, weekends can be filled with park trips and beach adventures, but for now, the weather is temperamental, so a movie night can suffice. Romances and horrors are great genres to cozy up to in the dark. If you have Netflix or Hulu, the possibilities of movies are endless.
If movies aren't your style or you need a quieter way to relax, pick up a good book. A good book on a rainy day or with calming music is a wonderful way to take a break from the responsibilities of life and escape into another world.
You have your hot chocolate made, playlist downloaded, movie set and books chosen. Time to forget about any work you have to do, and treat the weekend as a weekend. The only way to properly do this is to be comfortable, because why relax when you could relax? Build a pillow fort on your bed in any clear space using four chairs, an abundance of blankets and all the pillows you can find. This will make any chill session that much more enjoyable. This works in making work more enjoyable too.
