Making 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.
