Your house serves as a safe haven from whip­ping winds dur­ing the long chill of win­ter. When the days are short and the nights are long, mak­ing your rooms warmer and more invit­ing can brighten the mood of the whole house.

Com­bat win­ter blues by cre­at­ing comfy days this win­ter with these tips from the ex­perts at Sun Prod­ucts, the mak­ers of Snug­gle fab­ric soft­ener:

• Break­fast in Bed: It may feel deca­dent, but break­fast in bed is the per­fect way to stay cozy as you get the day started.

• Movie Night: Set aside a night each week to snug­gle up on the couch for movie night. Be sure your fam­ily room or liv­ing room is decked out with plenty of pil­lows and just-washed throw blan­kets. Put some pop­corn on the stove for a pip­ing hot treat.

• Build a Fort: Look­ing for a fun fam­ily ac­tiv­ity? Build a fort us­ing snug­gly soft sheets. Play a board game or work on a puz­zle in your cozy fort.

• Fire­place: Get the fire­place go­ing and have a “camp­fire” in your liv­ing room, com­plete with marsh­mal­lows and sin­ga­longs. Make sure the kids have their fa­vorite teddy bears to cud­dle up with for when you tell scary sto­ries!

• Soften up: Cre­ate com­fier rooms all around the house by giv­ing your fab­rics a touch of soft­ness. Treat sheets, linens, blan­kets and other laun­dry with a fab­ric soft­ener. Ex­tend the cozy feel­ing of a hot shower by wrap­ping up in soft, fluffy fresh­s­cented tow­els and robes.

To put a good mood in the air, look for a fab­ric soft­ener with a long-last­ing scent and fresh­ness. For ex­am­ple, Snug­gle Ex­hil­a­ra­tions comes in five fra­grance com­bi­na­tions, such as white laven­der and san­dal­wood and wild orchid and vanilla, that last from wash to wash.

• Make soup: Noth­ing is more hearty and ful­fill­ing then a big bowl of soup in win­ter. Make a big batch of healthy soup at the start of the week and serve it as a side all week long.

With a bit of care, you can stay warm and cozy all win­ter long at home.
