How to Get Cozy in the Evening

Nothing like coming home after a long day of work and relaxing on your favorite spot. It's important to have moments everyday where you can relieve yourself of all the accumulated stress, you don't want to go to bed worried or extremely tired. It's important to unwind for a while so that your troubles don't mess up with your much needed good night sleep.


  1. 1
    Pick a main spot of laziness. You don't want to be moving around all evening. A comfy chair, couch or your bed are great places to settle in.
  2. 2
    Collect what you need. Gather up your favorite things, such as your tablet, smartphone, laptop, e-reader, book, whatever you normally use while relaxing. Have everything at hands reach.
  3. 3
    Keep the remote close to you. If your cozy corner is facing a TV, make sure to have the remote handy. You don't want to be searching for it at the last minute.
  4. 4
    Get your favorite pillows, and comfy, fuzzy blankets. Even during the summer, it feels great to crank up the AC and get under the covers.
  5. 5
    Get something to drink. For a really relaxing evening, make decaf coffee, tea, or hot cocoa. Add whipped cream, or even a cherry, to jazz up your drink. Pour your drink into your favorite mug, and put it next to your bed/couch!
    • You can also have a glass of wine, or maybe a beer. Alcohol can help you wind down, but take it easy! You don't want to be hungover the next day, especially if you have to work.
  6. 6
    Avoid bright lighting and go for dim lamps. Don't rely just on the light of your TV/phone. Without another gentle light, it can be bad for you eyes.
    • It is a fact that looking at bright screens at night messes up with your sleep patterns. Dim the screens of your electronic devices.
  7. 7
    Turn on some relaxing music. A relaxation playlist on a music app could set the mood. Lay down, and enjoy your comfy evening.


  • Do you have a personal habit that helps you relax? Add it to your agenda! Showering or taking a short bath is always a great way to unwind after a long day.
