Make this your first HYGGE winter~ Ohhh warm and toasty.
So, what is it?
Pronounced "hoo-ga," this Danish concept cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Wildly simple!
Allow yourself to get cozy, to become obsessed with all things HYGGE! Lean all in!
How do you live a HYGGE lifestyle? You may already have some HYGGEISH tendencies
and don't even know it:)
Do you read a book or binge on netflix in your sweats? Then, you're already doing it - There's even a name for those sweats ~ Hyggebukser are that pair of pants you'd never be caught dead wearing in public. I'm wearing a pair right now-LOL
Here are a few more ways to get HYGGE with it:
First and foremost, you must embrace the lifestyle- wholeheartedly, without hesitation.
Go all in or be cold and miserable!
Light candles, many of them.
Light that fireplace.
Snuggle under a warm blanket.
Sip some delish hot chocolate or cacoa- YUM!
Enjoy homemade sweets and comfort foods. Like clam chowder, pot pie of your choice or a
delicious Danish pastry:)
What HYGGE is not!
Wasting precious time looking at your phone.
Dwelling on the past.
Putting pressure on yourself to accomplish something. Be sweet to yourself.
Hibernating alone all the time!
Hygge is all about keeping things simple and easy. Did you know that Denmark is always at the top of the list for the happiest countries in spite of their long winters. Just like Americans needed Ted Lasso, we need HYGGE!
