Need more cozy in your life? Me too. This year, the concept of hygge (pronounced HOO-gah) has been very popular. What is hygge, you ask? It's the Danish concept of coziness, the warmth of house and family that helps them get through their brutal winters and to the top of the lists of the happiest people in the world.
To find out more, I read The Cozy Life by Pia Edberg. It's a short book that is packed with ideas for making life more comforting, connected, safe, and warm. From simple tasks like lighting a scented candle or putting on fuzzy slippers to more complicated things like building stronger relationships or making your priorities line up with your values, hygge can transform your life from top to bottom.
Hygge is about that feeling of home, of belonging, of warmth. It's about surrounding yourself with the people and the things that are most comforting and using that feeling of safety to create a better life and a better world. It starts with you, with small actions and decisions, and radiates out to your family and friends, coworkers, and others in your community. It's about openness, gratitude, sharing, and generosity. It's a good way to live.
The Cozy Life is packed with hygge information, from the stories the author's father shares of cold Danish winters when he was growing up to specifics of the foundations of hygge, from lifestyle tips to a 30-Day Hygge Challenge, from ideas on busting clutter to recipes of Denmark desserts. This little book can change your life, and not just for winter. Hygge can make your life more comforting and comfortable all year round.
Need more comfort? Try The Cozy Life and see what happens.
