Hygge (pronounced HOO-GAH) is something you already know; it’s defined as “coziness of the soul” and “taking pleasure from the soothing, ordinary, and inexpensive things in life,” so think: sitting by a fireplace under a blanket and eating warm cookies. Heaven, pretty much. The Danish, who invented the word, are considered to be the happiest people on the planet so I feel like they must be on to something here…
Here’s how I like to #Hygge:
1-) Invest in a blanket that makes you feel cozy. 🛌
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m slightly embarrassed that I spent this much money on a blanket, but after seeing it 10,000 times on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I was officially sold and I have zero regrets about it. It truly is the softest, coziest blanket that I’ve ever owned and the cats are obsessed with it, too. Texture is a big part of hygge so definitely surround yourself with fluffy pillows, soft clothing, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2-) Cuddle up under that blanket with a good book. 📚
I’m a big reader though, admittedly, lately podcasts have been taking over! That said, I do enjoy reading a good book and “Peppermint Twist” is especially meaningful because it involves my family and the book even mentions my grandmother a few times.
3-) Light a candle that smells amazing. 🕯
If you follow me here on IG then you know I’m v. into BBW candles. Right now I’m burning @bathandbodyworks Marshmallow Fireside and the scent is just SO good. Candles are great to hygge if you don’t have a fireplace in your home.
4-) Take a detox bath 🛀.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honestly, I’m not a huge bath person. I love the idea of them but I typically get bored/restless about five minutes after getting in the bath, ha.... but when I DO set my intention to really relax, a nice detox bath can be really refreshing. I also just find my bathroom relaxing in general (even with all the beauty products, haha). Recently I’ve been using @thelordjones CBD Bath Salts and I love it.
How do you hygge? 🧘🏼♀️ (P.S. linking everything I mentioned in my Stories).
