HOW TO HYGGE / STAY COZY THIS WINTER
I enjoy the change of seasons, because there is novelty in it, but after a few weeks in the cold winter days I can say I’m a bit over it. So, I need to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in my house so it can lighten up the cold winter days. I learnt a few tips and tricks from my family in Denmark when it comes to creating a hygge place. Hygge is a nordic concept literally meaning a quality of coziness. Well I need all the possible coziness to get me to through the grey British winter days.
- 1. CREATE THE ATMOSPHERE
- 2. BE PRESENT
- 3. PLEASURE
4. COMFORT, BOOKS & TEA
Get yourself some comfy loungewear, heavy socks, a nice cardigan. You want to feel comfortable, relaxed and warm. If you live in a warm place, well I’m jealous.
Bring out the book that makes you forget the world and disappear between the pages. Take your time, enjoy the story while sipping on a cup of your favourite tea.
5. MUSIC & PHOTO ALBUMS
Create different playlists for the vibe you want to create in your house. You can have a slow and chill one, or something that gets you moving and lifts up the spirit. Music heals everything so turn up the volume and relax. Print out some photos and create a photo album. There is something really hyggelig about browsing through an album.
5. SPEND TIME IN NATURE
