7 rituals to shake the winter blues

Winter can be a challenging season – some love the cold, and others hate it. With shorter days and colder temperatures, the winter blues can quickly set in. With Easylife Kitchens, we’ve put together 7 rituals to shake those winter blues!

Seasonal Recipes

One of the best ways to shake the winter blues is by cooking up hearty, winter meals. Embrace seasonal ingredients that will fill your home with warm aromas. Our “Breads, Soups, & Pasta” digi-cookbook is packed with winter recipes!

Coffee, Tea, & Hot Chocolate Station

Create a dedicated hot beverage station as a delightful addition to your kitchen. Keep it stocked with your favourite coffee and tea blends, a coffee machine or a kettle, and all the extras to make the perfect hot chocolate! Your station will be a hit in the chilly mornings and for enjoying a calming evening brew.

Light Up Your Space

Proper lighting in your kitchen and living space is essential when it comes to beating the winter blues. Use a combination of ambient and accent lighting to brighten your kitchen and consider adding some fairy lights for a touch of magic. Bright and well-lit spaces can improve your mood and make your kitchen and home more inviting.

Warm Colours and Textures

Add warm colours and textures to your décor to create a cosy atmosphere such as cushions, rugs, curtains, and even wooden elements. These soft textiles can easily add comfort to your home.

Home Baking

Baking is a fantastic winter activity that can bring warmth to your kitchen. From breads, cookies, rusks, pies, and other favourites, you’ll get to enjoy a sweet treat while filling your kitchen with a delicious smell.

Start An Indoor Garden

Bring a bit of nature indoors and start an indoor herb garden. Use your windowsill or countertop and start with herbs like basil, mint, and rosemary. They thrive indoors and provide fresh flavours to your winter dishes.

Host A Dinner Evening

Winter is the perfect time to catch up over a cosy gathering in your kitchen or home. From a casual brunch to a dinner party, or even a biscuit-baking session, spending your time with friends and family can quickly beat those winter blues.

Embrace the season with these rituals from Easylife Kitchens. From cooking hearty meals to adding cosy décor to your home, there are so many ways to spend the cold weather indoors in a warm and inviting environment.
