Hyggeā€”Canadian Style!

Coziness of the Soul. Doesn’t that sound marvelous? Hygge (pronounced HOO-gah) is the Danish art of creating coziness of the soulā€”things that make you feel good.

As the hours of daylight decrease, itā€™s the perfect time to bring coziness into our lives. What images come to your mind with the words ā€œcoziness of the soulā€?

Allow me to add a few images to your thoughts…

  • candles
  • a soft, warm blanket
  • comfy wool socks
  • a good book
  • a fireplace
  • a warm drink
  • a perfect spot to watch the snow fall
  • comfy clothes
  • a get-together with family and friends
  • delicious, pleasure foodā€”something decadent, or hearty and warming
  • gratitudeā€”feeling thankful for the little things
  • fresh smell of pine or wood
  • soft music
  • a hot bath
  • craftsā€”knitting, coloring, crocheting…
  • board games, card games, puzzles…
  • making something by hand
  • a Reiki treatment! šŸ™‚

The Danish have a great idea. I encourage you to bring Hyggeā€”Canadian Style into your life. Happy Winter to my dear family and friends! ā™„
