10 “Hygge” Touches to Cosy up your Home this Winter

Hygge a buzz word that’s been around for a while, but if you haven’t heard of it, Hygge – pronounced hue-guh – is a Norwegian word meaning well-being. It is used to describe the Danish culture of celebrating what we already have and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Homes have a warm, cosy atmosphere where you can relax, eat comfort food and enjoy the company of friends and family.

The idea is to create a space where you can wind down and forget about all your worries. A comfortable couch with the lights dimmed, or candles burning, where you can cuddle up with your dog and read a book is Hygge.

It doesn’t matter how wealthy you are, hygge is a way of life which increases happiness and well-being. A lifestyle believed to be responsible for Denmark being one the happiest countries in the world.

Here are some hygge touches you can introduce into your home.

Make the time for Friends
Hygge is surrounding yourself with everything you love and that includes friends and family.  It’s a mixture of the atmosphere created by the décor style and the company that makes us happy.

Make hygge part of your daily routine, don’t take life too serious and make time to enjoy the things that make life great. Give yourself a break, don’t feel you need to be perfect, wear your comfy pants if they make you happy, enjoy time with friends and family, laugh a lot and be aware that these are the things that make life great.

I hope this week you take some time each day to ensure you have a hygge moment.
