Hygge—Canadian Style!

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

As the hours of daylight decrease, it’s the perfect time to bring coziness into our lives. What images come to your mind with the words “coziness of the soul”?

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 food—something decadent, or hearty and warming
  • gratitude—feeling thankful for the little things
  • fresh smell of pine or wood
  • soft music
  • a hot bath
  • crafts—knitting, coloring, crocheting…
  • board games, card games, puzzles…
  • making something by hand
  • a Reiki treatment! 🙂

The Danish have a great idea. I encourage you to bring Hygge—Canadian Style into your life. Happy Winter to my dear family and friends!
