The Importance of Relaxing Away from the TV Screen

It is easy to fall into the habit of spending the festive season in front of the TV. But this sedentary lifestyle can take a toll on your health, both physically and mentally.

Physically, too much sitting can increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. It also reduces energy levels and weakens bones and muscles due to lack of movement. Mentally, too much television watching can leave you feeling lethargic and unmotivated and can contribute to depression. 

The good news is that a winter garden lounge is a great way to enjoy the festive season without relying on the television. 

Creating a Sheltered Heated Area

Creating a sheltered, heated area in your garden to lounge in this winter is the perfect way to relax away from screens and keep warm. Here are some easy steps to get you started:

  • To keep your space cozy and warm, you may want to consider investing in patio heaters. 
  • If you’re not near a wall or fence that can provide protection from the wind, you may want to look into buying some wind-proofing. 

Picking Cozy Furniture

When it comes to picking cozy furniture for your winter garden lounge, there are a few things to consider. The key is to find pieces that will keep you warm and comfortable, even in the chilliest weather. Here are some ideas for furniture that will make your winter garden lounge both inviting and functional.

For starters, try out a cozy outdoor sofa set. Look for pieces with weatherproof upholstery and deep, comfortable cushions. If you’re going for a rustic look, look for a sofa set made from teak or wicker. Or opt for a modern-style outdoor sectional with stylish, sleek lines.

Complement your outdoor sofa set with plenty of blankets and pillows. Not only will this add some extra warmth and comfort to your garden lounge, but it also makes a great design statement.

Preparing Simple Finger Foods for Snacking

Finger food is the perfect addition to any outdoor lounge experience because it’s easy to serve and eat and can be enjoyed without needing to sit down at a dining table. For an extra special touch, consider offering dishes that are made with seasonal ingredients such as apples, pears, squash, and pumpkins. This will give your guests something special to remember your gathering by!

Having finger food available is also an excellent way to keep your guests warm and comfortable during cold winter nights. Snacks like mini pizzas and decadent brownies are likely to be popular and will definitely help keep everyone’s spirits up. You can learn how to make the best cosmic brownie here.
