Practising the Art of Hygge

Practising the Art of Hygge [petiteadventures.org]

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are starting to change, and I’ve come down with a wicked cold. So, there seems like no better time to practice the Scandinavian art of hygge.

Hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah” and not “HIG-gy” as I’ve been saying it) is a Danish term that defines “the quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” It means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life; it’s sitting by a fire, sipping warm drinks and wearing chunky knits.

For me, practising the art of hygge means wearing my comfiest pants, sipping deliciously warm tea, and being wrapped in my cosiest blanket whilst I lay on the couch. It means being comfortable, content and enjoying the moment, even if those moments are filled with Master Chef Australia reruns.

Here’s to a very hygge weekend!
