8 Things To Do This Winter In Toronto When It's -20 Outside
There's never been a better time to stay inside.
I’m gonna keep it 100: winter just ain’t my cup of tea. Actually, I retract that statement; OUTDOOR winter activities aren’t my jam. That, though? I’m ALL about that life.
Listening to Xmas tunes, sipping hot toddies by the fire, watching pretty snowflakes dance from the clouds... Come on! What’s better than not stepping foot outside and thoroughly enjoying the comfort of your own home? Chilling all while Netflix plays in the background, watching the struggles of the winter play out from your window; let's be real, that's the TRUE way to enjoy a -20 Toronto winter day! And if you're having trouble figuring out some fun ways to spend an awesome winter day, look no further .
1. Breakfast In Bed
Ahhh, the ol' B&B! Gotta say, I do consider myself a certified breakfast pro. Breakfast and brunch are my all-time fav meals, so you could say that I take them very seriously and get pretty creative with my spreads.
Whip up a mouth-watering breakfast andto enjoy this deliciousness in the . Careful with that pool of syrup, though!
2. Epic Game Night
Round up yummy snacks, prep some mulled cider, and invite your crew over in their comfiest outfits. Add a few exciting games to the mix and watch hilarity ensue. You'll be laughing so hard that the cider may eventually get to your head and your stomach will be sore the next day. But it's all worth it in the name of FUN.
You'll no doubt be glad to slip into theonce your friends leave, knowing just a tad more about what makes you crack up and looking forward to the next get-together!
3. Declutter & Redecorate
Ever since the hugely-popular KonMari method blew up, most of us have developed a slight obsession with getting rid of useless clutter. And where does clutter pile up most? In our lovely little homes. Wash your makeup brushes, dust every nook and cranny, throw out expired food, meal prep for the week, wrap last-minute gifts; invest time in the universally dreaded yet highly-necessary tasks that often get overlooked with our busy schedules. Trust me, you'll feel much better when you've crossed a boatload of things off your to-do list.
Decluttering (AKA getting your sh*t together) and redecorating (AKA sprucing up your life) are two easy ways to brighten up your holidays. Now that your place is tidy, splurge on a few unique accent pieces to match your.
4. All-Day Movie Marathon
Along with Christmas carols, one of theis classic flicks. We grew up with gems such as the iconic Home Alone series, the hilarious Santa Clause trilogy, and (my personal fav) the tear-jerking Jack Frost starring Michael Keaton.
GEMS, my friends! Absolute friggin' gems that are DEFS worth revisiting by indulging in an unforgettable Xmas-movie marathon. And if this film extravaganza were to be carried out in, say,? The whole experience is instantly heightened to a whole other level of relaxation. You can thank me later.
5. Rediscover Your Love of Literature
Remember when, as avid book lovers, we used to actually set aside time each day to revel in the wonder of the written word? Yeah, me neither. It sucks to admit, but we're so busy nowadays with work and different priorities that our passion for reading tends to fall by the wayside.
My recommendation? Throw on your fuzziest socks,, and open up that book you never finished. Welcome it back like a well-adored friend, a long-lost companion. Just try not to pass out while comfortably laying on your . (Yeahhh, good luck with that, BTW!)
6. Drinking Hot Cocoa
It may seem kinda silly to some, but sipping on a cup of piping hot, richly flavoured hot chocolate is the epitome ofcoziness. And to really amp up this holly jolliness? Play some soothing music and in your ultrasoft for ultimate relaxation. Spend an hour contemplating all the reasons why winter ain't too shabby after all.
7. At-Home Spa Day
A little R&R never hurt nobody. In fact, we could all use a little more self-care. Devote a day to pampering yourself from head to toe. Light up some sweet candles; use that special bath bomb you've been saving; slip on a hydrating sheet mask; give yourself a mani-pedi; have a glass of wine. Or two.
By the end of this well-earned self-indulgence day, your relaxation levels will have you aching to tuck yourself into . That luxe against your freshly shaven and well-creamed skin? Um, yes, PLEASE!
8. 24-Hour Pet Cuddlefest
One of life's greatest simple pleasures is slipping into freshly washed, softener-infused sheets. But us devoted doggy parents know that letting your newly scrubbed pup jump into bed and cuddling together on your amazing is a one-of-a-kind experience.
So, for the chronic canine cuddlers out there, give adorable Simba his much-needed scrub-down and revel in his soft fur and awesome scent. Enjoy your furry best friend while he's still mud-free; and giving him plenty of cuddles because he's been SUCH a good boy - yes, he has!
