• mahabis ambassadors // downtime in december

 

With Christmas almost upon us, we thought we’d find out how some of our mahabis ambassadors choose to spend their festive time. The holiday season can often be crammed full of festivities, and a hectic time of year, so we’re focusing on how people choose to unwind amongst the chaos.

We spoke to some of our favourite instagrammers to hear about what their best part of the holiday season is, and how they like to spend their downtime in winter. From curling up on the couch, to going for long walks in the crisp air, everyone has their own way of relaxing and enjoying themselves this time of year.

Mary Maddocks 

 

"I love getting crafty at this time of year - something about the cold weather just makes me want to nest and get creative. I love gathering foliage and making messy wreaths to decorate the house, and I also usually make my own Christmas cards and tree decorations. I also love getting out of the city and exploring the countryside - those frosty sunny days in winter are so beautiful. We wrap up warm, give ourselves the whole day and always take a big flask of hot chocolate."

"I love Boxing Day when all the craziness of Christmas day is over and there's a chance to relax, spend time with my family and eat copious amounts of leftovers in front of the TV. There's no need to get up at a certain time, no big meal to cook and no pressure to do anything. It's just a lovely unstructured day."

"The way I like to relax in the winter is I go for a run every morning (the colder the better) and upon my return home stick the fire on in my small front room."

"Cosy doesn't come close to explaining how relaxed a place it is to be, logs crackling in front of me whilst enjoying properly garnished porridge... For me that is making the most of freelance life!"

Duygu Ntagkala

 

"During my off times, I usually like going to small and cosy cafes around my neighbourhood and gather with my very close friends. Also, one of my favourite activities is to wander around streets to discover small and lovely boutiques for inspiration for my own brand."

"My favourite part of the holiday season is having my family around and all the decorations in the city."

"In winter during my downtime I like to watch tv series or films, and also surfing on internet on design website to increase my creativity and inspiration."

"My favourite part of the holiday season is the lunch with my relatives which makes me feel a part of a big family."

Caroline Birk Bahrenscheer 

 

"During the week and when it's really dark in the afternoon, I love curling up on the couch after a long day with a good magazine or a good series. At the weekend I take a walk if the weather is nice, to get the last sun of the year, or maybe visit a Christmas market."

"My favourite part of the holiday season is that it's all about "Hygge". A danish expression that is hard to explain but it's all about spending time with your loved ones, picking up the Christmas tree, go ice-skating and just have a really nice time."

 

mahabis ambassadors // seasonal downtime

Mohammed Aneez

 

"I always like to start by making a to-do list for my downtime. I used to think the point of having free time was to avoid having a to-do list. However, I've found that as with my job I'm far more productive if I set out goals for myself at the start of the day. Even if an item on my downtime list is as simple as, "Read for an hour," at least I know I'll feel accomplished when I get to cross it off."

"My list during the holiday season tends to include things such as: plan a winter party, explore a neighbourhood, try out new techniques in photography."

Ilenia Martini 

"I travel a lot for my work, therefore whenever I have some downtime, I like to spend it at home. I like to unwind with a nice cup of tea and a book or a good tv series."

"My favourite part of the holiday season is definitely the crisp air, chestnuts and the smell of Christmas. I love to indulge in long walks whilst sipping a chai latte and just take as much time for myself as possible (before all the family shenanigans begin!)."
