Here at MFCH, we are all about the art of slow living and for our upcoming May Box, we are now sharing with you the art of cocooning. After a long year inside our homes, we have found the importance of taking time for ourselves.
There are many ways to cocoon at home but here are some of our favorites!
When cocooning at home, we find it important to be calm, warm, and surround ourselves with elements that make us feel good. One thing that makes us feel calm and warm is when we are curled up with a good book and cozy throw on a chair next to the window or fireplace – one of life’s simplest pleasures!
Another way to cocoon at home is to control the lighting in your environment. Lighting can change a whole mood, whether indoors or out. Placing some pretty lights, candles, or garlands can create a warm air in your living space. Beautifully scented candles can also bring a delicate and deliciously fragrant touch to the home and create an ambiance of serenity.
If settling in with a book is not your thing, then you can always relax with some of your favorite music. Music can trigger so many things in our emotions, so make sure that you choose something soothing and light-hearted. Our favorite tunes to relax to are anything by Edith Piaf, nature sounds, or some smooth jazzy numbers by Micheal Bublé.
You can also cocoon with a meaningful movie, snuggled on the couch or in your bed. Make sure to choose a film that makes you want feel relaxed and think happy thoughts. A good romantic comedy or a film for the whole family is the way to go for us. Films such as, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Midnight in Paris, or one of our personal favorites- The Intern.
Lastly, if you do not want to stay inside, you can also cocoon outdoors. By either relaxing in your garden, listening to nature or by going on a nice stroll in a nearby park.
We hope that you are all taking good care of yourselves during these strange times and have enjoyed our tips in the art of cocooning!
