Late last month I sat down and read the best little book! Miek Wiking’s book The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well has become a bestseller all over the world and I can see why. He has a way of bringing you back to earth and focusing you on what’s important in your daily life.
Many people have heard about Hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”) and relate it to cosy homes, candles, cups of hot chocolate, etc. They are right – all of those things are hyygelit and related to winter. So, can you still enjoy hygge the rest of the year? Yes, you can.
Spring has definitely sprung where I live. So bringing hygge into spring means decluttering your home, bringing in some fresh flowers, having a picnic on a warm day (preferably with friends!), and getting some fresh candles with a springtime fragrance.
One additional thing to do to make your spring hyggelit is read this book if you haven’t yet. It has a way of changing the way you look at your life and changing how you set your priorities. So read it and get started on that emergency hyyge kit!
