Hygge Crafts

What is hygge? Where to begin!

It is a lifestyle, a hug, a cup of tea while snuggling under your favorite afghan.

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is the Danish lifestyle of cozy contentedness while enjoying the simple things in life. This may include a cup of hot cocoa on a snowy day, those favorite homemade slippers on your feet, a thick and cozy shawl wrapped tight around the shoulders. It includes candles, fireplaces, window seats, pillows. It is comfort and familiarity. It is togetherness with loved ones. Despite their famously terrible winters, Denmark is considered one of the happiest countries due to this lifestyle.

We can all learn how to hygge a bit more in our own day-to-day lives. Create your very own hygge home. During the cooler months, warm up with hygge crafts.

This is basically one big winter survival guide! Being cozy is one of my top priorities in life, so I was thrilled when hygge gained some popularity. I will definitely be trying some of these ideas.

I'm so happy that hygge is getting the attention it deserves. It's been popping up on my radar literally everywhere lately, and I agree that it is definitely a lifestyle. I like to incorporate more "hygge" in my life by setting time aside to be completely alone with my current read. I would be a total wreck (well, more so than usual) if I didn't have my designated "hygge" time. Fun fact I did not know how to pronounce it correctly until reading it here, so thanks for that, Dana!

In this day and age, the concept of hygge is incredibly important. We live in a world where being "busy" is seen as a badge of honor, so it's essential to remember to slow down and focus on whatever brings joy to your life and gratitude to your heart.

I love this! I try to live a hygge lifestyle myself, which I interpret as wearing sweatpants all day every day and making hot chocolate whenever possible. Excellent list, Dana; I'll have to try some of these!

Oh man, I am going to NEED this - especially once Daylight Savings Time ends. I can't wait to fill my home with cozy blankets and candles. That cute teacup candle might just be something I'll have to try this season!

Ah! I'm already feeling more relaxed. It's a foggy day here in Chicago, and that extra chunky gratitude blanket looks extra warm and cozy right about now.
