“Hygge is the Danish concept of
coziness…the art of creating warmth, comfort, and well being through
connection, treasuring the moment, and surrounding yourself with things
you love.” -Pia Edberg
A whole art dedicated to coziness! How awesome is that?
Hygge is…homemade chicken noodle soup when you’re sick. Drinking hot chocolate after playing in the snow. Lots of comfy blankets. Family movie nights.
It’s a card from a best friend when you’ve had a bad day, autumn leaves crunching under your feet, the smell of concord grapes and apples ripening in the fall. It’s a snow day, the way your daughter’s face lights up when she sees you’re home, the cat curled up in the corner, and cute slippers.
Hygge is being aware of the fullness of your life. This awareness brings gratitude and the gratitude just multiplies as you begin to truly treasure and savor each day. You begin to feel more content, more at peace. Life feels more rich and joyful.
