Do you hygge yet? Have you heard about this amazing new “trend?” I hesitate calling it a trend because it is more of a way of living that has just happened to become extremely popular this past year. Hygge is a Danish word with no exact translation, but the concept is that of coziness and enjoying the simple things in life. So how do you hygge? I’ve compiled a list of things that I enjoy during the winter, I’d love to hear your ideas as well!
Light candles. A lot of candles.
Drink hot cocoa.
Go outdoors and enjoy nature. Try hiking.
Share a meal with some good friends.
Wear thick socks and mittens.
Read by the fireplace.
Enjoy a glass of wine.
Play a board game. Or work on a puzzle.
Make snow angels or have a snowball fight.
If you are still struggling with the concept (and I seriously doubt you are) here’s a hygge starter kit.
