Lake effect snow, freezing temperatures…we’re definitely in the depths of winter here in the Cleveland area. This time of year can really get you down. Could you use a little more hygge in your life? This Danish word for coziness and contentment is all about creating complete comfort and well-being. Sounds good right about now, doesn’t it? If so, then we’ve got some ideas for you…
Time & Space to Connect
In our fast-paced, fully-scheduled culture, we’re desperate for connection. Swimming through a sea of people in meetings, activites, and even at home, we don’t often stop and spend quality time with one another. Hygge reminds us that a true sense of contentment and well-being comes from connecting with the ones we love. So, carve out some time in your calendar and some space in your home to meaningfully gather with your family and friends. Your spirit will instantly be warmed and greatly refreshed!
Fill Up Yourself
What have you done for yourself lately? Have you taken a moment to sit with a cup of tea, snuggle up with a book, scroll out some thoughts in your journal, or soak in a hot bath? Peaceful alone time is incredibly restorative. In the midst of our busy lives, it’s just as important to reconnect with ourselves as it is to connect with others. To embrace the cozy contentment of hygge, make space–both mentally and physically–to do whatever it is that fills up your soul.
What makes you feel cozy? What makes you feel happy? Why? A little introspection can go a long way toward creating a house that truly feels like home. Once you identify the things that will increase hygge for you, look for elements that will bring those into your home design.
