Some days, I surprise myself by checking everything off my to-do list and on other days, I just lay down on the bed and stare at the walls for hours. When I was a child, I remember my teachers telling me that laziness is a ‘bad habit’. Growing up, I realised that it is not so bad after all. It’s okay to spend a day doing nothing at times, right? While I can pull myself out of a lazy mood during summer, winter is the worst. It takes an army (or a message from my boss) to get me out of bed. So, while I sit here trying to figure out how to do that today, I have compiled a list of a few easy hacks that will help you sail through this winter.
Workout in bed
This may sound bizarre to a lot of people, but ‘bed workouts’ are a real thing, guys. You may not lose as many calories, but something is better than nothing. A few yoga poses that do not require you to get up from the bed will be perfect on a cold winter morning.
Replace your normal shampoo with a dry shampoo
Washing your hair in winter can actually be a pain, but with dry shampoo by your side, you don’t have to worry at all. Use it on the days when you feel super lazy to shower (no judgement here, we’ve all been there!)
Layer it up
We all love to add layers but have you ever layered up smart? For example, if you don’t have a pair of leg warmers, wear your summer tights under a pair of jeans and you’re good to go.
Invest in a good moisturiser
Ladies, how often do you apply a moisturiser and it wears off the moment you step out? Winter makes your skin dry and no matter how much you moisturise, sometimes it’s just not enough. Investing in a moisturiser that can last all day is probably the best decision you will ever make. My go-to is the Emami Boroplus, which is made with natural ingredients like milk, saffron, vitamin E and antiseptic herbs. So, not only does it moisturise your skin, but it also heals your skin while you use it. Moisturisers actually double up as great make-up removers too. Especially during winters. Amazing, isn’t it?

Use a blow dryer to dry your clothes
Not only do clothes take ages to dry clothes during winter, but they are also ice-cold when you wear them. You can use your hairdryer to make sure any traces of dampness is gone. Pro Tip: Blow dry them right before you wear them for a warm, fuzzy feeling.
Keep a muffler with you at all times
A muffler or a woollen scarf can be very handy when the weather gets too cold. You can also style it in different ways to look trendy and feel cozy at the same time.
Use a razor to remove sweater fuzz
Sweater fuzz can make your favourite new sweater look old and worn out. Just slide your razor on it to remove the extra fuzz. It really works! Just be careful you don't end up cutting your sweater.
Moisturise your hands and wear gloves
Ladies, this is the best hack that my mother taught me when I was a child. It helps retain the moisture in your hands. I guess that explains why I have such soft hands now. (Not bragging)
