How You Can Plan the Perfect Cozy Winter Day

The days are getting shorter, and the air feels extra chilly. It's no secret that winter is here in full force. But just because you've swapped your flip-flops for a winter coat doesn't mean you have to hibernate until spring. You can enjoy the season to its fullest with this step-by-step guide to creating that perfectly cozy, special winter day.

Step 1: Pick Your Activity

Do you want to bundle up and head outside? Or would you rather stay home and curl up under a pile of soft blankets? Once you choose where you want to spend your cozy day, you can pick the activity that sounds the best. Is it…

  • A brisk hike along a local nature trail?
  • Cracking open a fictional novel?
  • Spending the afternoon binging on Netflix?

Remember, your perfect winter day is all about feeling warm and cozy, so choose something that is enjoyable and will relax your mind and body.

Step 2: Dress for the Occasion

What’s a comfy day without a cozy outfit?

If you’re staying home, put on your favorite sweatshirt or soft pajamas. Don’t forget your fuzzy slippers!

And if you’re heading out, don’t forget some gloves and a scarf. You may want to opt for layers rather than one big heavy sweatshirt. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Wear a thin inner layer to help pull away moisture from your body.
  2. Add a middle layer to keep you warm.
  3. Top it off with an outer layer to buffer you against the wind or snow.

The best part about layers is that if you get too hot, you can pull off that outer layer and still have enough clothing to protect you from the chill.

Step 3: Pour Yourself a Hot Drink

Winter was made for piping hot mugs of cocoa or cider. But if you’re looking for a more health-conscious option, consider one of these delicious options instead:

  • Healthy Hot Chocolate – This non-dairy treat only has six ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to whip up! (If you’re a dairy fan, swap out the almond milk in this recipe with the same amount of raw milk.)
  • Chai Tea Latte – Enjoy a warm cup in the morning or for an afternoon pick-me-up.
  • Ginger Tea – Give your immune system a boost with a powerful cup of ginger tea. Ginger is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, it may help lower your blood sugar and treat indigestion. (This makes it a perfect addition to your diet during the holidays!)

And while you’re at it, treat yourself to a bowl full of savory soup. We personally love a mouth-watering butternut squash soup, like this, or a hot stew such as this winter lentil one. Soups and stews are great when you’re on-the-go so be sure to fill up your mug before you head out!

Design Your Cozy Winter Day

This year has definitely been one for the books. And it’s high time for you to dedicate a day for some much-needed self care. The holidays are right around the corner and with all the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to overlook the importance of self care.

Remember that at the heart of your perfectly cozy day is you. So, take a few moments to plan out your perfect winter day and enjoy every moment. You deserve it!

Happy Patients

I have had back issues most of my life. Since starting treatments with Dr Greg I have had no more issues. It's such a relief to be able to be physical at the high level I want to be. I am able to maintain wellness by seeing Dr Greg on a regular basis. Thank you Dr Greg!!

Hello! I just want to say that you are truly a healer! After leaving your office last Monday, I was more able to breathe, truly breathe - after having suffered all weekend to take a deep breath due to a "rib out of place" OK - if you say so....all I know is that, though I continued to have a bit of pain in my upper back and neck for a day or two, I could take wonderful, glorious deep breaths thanks to your treatment. Thanks again for all you do! Even if I do make many sound affects while you are treating me - "OUCH!!! Hmmmph!! Ughhh!! Really???" I truly appreciate your healing touch....


I have had Parkinson's Disease for 8 years.  I have developed arthritis in my back and hips. The stiffness of the Parkinson's and the arthritis has caused me a lot of pain. Because of that unrelenting pain I was unable to exercise. Exercise is an important part of pain management for Parkinson's.  Since I have been seeing Dr. Krapf I am feeling much better and his care has allowed me to begin exercising again, which has improved my overall well being. In the past I have been treated by physical therapists and orthopedists. Dr. Krapf's chiropractic manipulations have had an amazing impact on my health and happiness. I highly recommend Dr. Krapf to anyone who needs excellent chiropractic care and the many alternative therapies he offers. I would say he is magical!

When my friend received excellent care from Dr. Krapf, she recommended him to me. I have had gastrointestinal problems for nearly 50 years that have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease with lactose intolerance. All that, including unrelieved stress had made me unhappy and unhealthy. Today I am a different person with the help of Dr. Greg. The Gastro issues are practically nonexistent, my stress levels have plummeted, and my body is changing. I am so grateful for Dr. Greg and his healing hands.

Our family have been patients of Krapf chiropractic for a few decades. We have several success stories archived. The most recent event involves our youngest son who is completing his senior year of high school. He has been a patient of Krapf Chiropractic (KCA) since birth. He has been an avid soccer player since the age of four and has sustained numerous injuries over the years. Dr. Krapf has successfully assisted in every recovery.

Most recently, he began complaining of his feet hurting while playing soccer. Both feet hurt - particularly the balls of his feet while running and cutting. He came to Dr. Greg with his complaint as this was seriously affecting his game. Dr. Greg evaluated the situation and decided a foot scan should be done. The finding was dropped arches. My son was fitted for orthotics. They arrived within days and he wore these as directed. Within a few short weeks he is now playing full games pain free.


I first called Krapf Chiropractic when my back was so bad that I couldn't get up off the floor. It's been a blessing to have Dr. Greg help me with my overall wellness and health! I find this to be a place where you are not a number and everyone cares. Mollie is always cheerful and reminds me to come. Erin is always smiling and helps relax me when I'm in pain. I would not be functioning if I did not have Krapf Chiropractic to keep me going. As I get older my appreciation deepens, especially when I see people around me who are suffering with back problems. If they only knew how helpful this is. I believe Dr. Greg treats the person not the symptoms. Thank you

I've been lucky to have exceptional health care from the beginning. At the beginning, seventy-six-plus years ago, Hugh Rodgers brought me into the world in mother and dad's second-floor bedroom in our dairy farm home. Hugh's son, Hugh, Jr., practiced with his dad and beyond caring for my parents, he, also, cared for hundreds of others and me. Roughly forty years ago, a friend suggested I make an appointment with Richard Krapf for help with back-pain. Richard treated the pain that, often, was debilitating, and on Richard's death, his son, Greg became the second second generation to help me from one place to another. I'm grateful to Hugh, Hugh, Richard and, perhaps, most of all, to Greg.
