Maximum Cozy Vibes: Instructions For Escaping From This Cold World

Hunker down

It's a cold world out there. Not only is winter starting to rear its ugly head, but also, maybe you noticed just who managed to get elected as the President of the United States and is inspiring terrible, hateful behavior all over our country. It's beyond scary. Kind of makes you want to curl up under a big pile of blankets and never leave your room. And you know what, I think maybe you should do just that. At least for a little while. Take shelter from the cold weather and this political shitstorm and decompress. "Treat yo self," as they say, to some maximum cozy vibes. We all deserve to hide from the world sometimes to recharge our batteries before we gear up to keep fighting. Here are our detailed instructions for doing so.

You’re going to want to start off with establishing the base for your coziness, which we’ll refer to as your “nest.” Obviously, your bed is the first place that comes to mind for this, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. Like with this giant furry beanbag.
