Get Cozy With Hygge in 3 Simple Ways

Have you heard of hygge?  Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is an important part of Danish culture. It encompasses the mood of coziness and contentment and encourages people to pursue happiness every day. All it requires is slowing down and focusing on the joy to be found in small moments.  Getting cozy with hygge is quite simple.

Now more than ever, we can all use a little extra self-care. This uncertain time has created a lot of stress, so it’s important to slow down and appreciate the good things in life. That’s where using the Danish concept of hygge to get cozy comes in.

Get cozy with hygge at home in 3 simple ways.

3 Simple Ways to Get Cozy With Hygge

We want to share three simple ways to use hygge in your home to create a cozy, comfortable, and welcoming environment.

1. Light some candles to create a hyggelig environment

Candles are a must-have for creating a hyggelig (hygge-like) atmosphere. The warm, flickering light has a calming effect and is very soothing. If you’re not a candle lover, then consider warmer light bulbs to create a homier atmosphere. If possible, dimmer switches are always a good idea to get just the right amount of ambient light.

Great smelling candles for home at every price point.

2. Hygge almost always involves a cozy throw

Comfortable, soft textures are a big part of the hygge lifestyle, so a cozy blanket is a necessity for hygge lovers. Grab your favorite plush blanket or lighter layers in the warmer months and curl up on the sofa for a relaxing evening. A soft blanket isn’t the only way to incorporate snuggly textures into your life. Your favorite oversized sweater, soft socks, and throw pillows are all accessories that can be added to your home to create a hyggelig space. 

3. Make something tasty for the perfect hygge vibe

Comfort food is incredibly soothing for the soul. Pulling out an old family recipe, mixing up a cup of cocoa, or baking a favorite dessert are all excellent ways to create cozy vibes at home. It’s even better if you have people over to share the experience with. Sit around a table lit with candles and enjoy some comfort food, and simply enjoy the conversation. You can even use these 3 simple hygge practices to get cozy with your own family while enjoying a meal together.
