Check out a few other ways to pamper yourself and celebrate being stuck inside.

Set the Scene- Even if it’s just you, light your candles and dim the lamps.  The low light will mellow the mood, helping you relax and make the most of your day home.

Grab a Warm Drink- Try kicking up the classic hot chocolate or herbal tea with a little liquor.  Any of the Godiva liquors taste wonderful in Cocoa and Rum goes beautifully with hot tea.

Take a Nap – How often do you get to curl up with a cozy blanket and close your eyes in the middle of the day? There is no better way to rejuvenate your mind and body.  To maximize your nap time try turning off the TV and opting for a good novel.
