The trees have shed all of their leaves, the sun is setting at the ungodly hour of 4:30pm, and the novelty of “sweater weather” is long gone. That’s right—winter is officially upon us and if you’re anything like us, your mornings are finding you desperately fighting off the urge to stay in bed all day. So, what to do when your circadian rhythms seem to be screaming, “HIBERNATE! HIBERNATE! HIBERNATE!” at the top of their lungs and you’re finding it impossible to leave the comfort of your plush, crinkle-velvet duvet? We say don’t. If you’re looking for the perfect way to #LiveYourBestLife this season, we’ve got it right here: BED. FOREVER.
“That sounds good in theory,” you might say, “but what about exercise? Food? Entertainment?” You’d be surprised to learn that the list of things that you can do from the warm, luxurious comfort of bed is pretty much limitless. All you need is a little bit of imagination. To illustrate our point, here is a list of 7 things you can do, all without ever getting out of your pajamas. Here’s to staying in bed!*
TV is an essential part of being alive. Schlepping all the way to the living room to watch it can be strenuous, though. Instead, prop a laptop on some pillows and get your entertainment fix from bed.
Have A Spa Night
Winter can really take it out of you. Give yourself the down-time you deserve by cranking up the slow jams and throwing on your favorite rejuvenating sheet mask.
Stay Nourished + Hydrated
The kitchen is far away. Like, really, really, really far. Solve this age-old dilemma by bringing the kitchen to you!
Stalk Your Friends
Just because you’ve decided to shut your bedroom door forever doesn’t mean you need to be shut-out from the world. Keep up-to-date with regular Social Media check-ins.
Don’t just survive. Thrive. Unleash your creativity, without unleashing too much.
Because getting out of bed is bad, but muscle atrophy is worse.
Throw A Party!
Slumber parties were the best part of being a kid. Let’s bring them back!
And, if you’re going to stay in bed for literally ever, you’re going to need a good mattress. Shop Leesa mattresses on westelm.com + sleep like a baby.
*Note: We’re totally kidding. Please go outside.
