How to Hygge This Fall | BLOGTOBER 🍂☕🎃

The best thing about Hygge is that it's all about self-care.

And over here, we're really starting to dig deep into the self-care routines. So if you're new, welcome. If you're not, welcome back. I'm still on my personal journey of self-love and self-care. Hygge (hue-guh) is the Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness with associated feelings of wellness and contentment. I love that this word exists. I love that this feeling exists. And I love that you don't have to be Danish or Norwegian to put this into practice.

My first suggestion, but it's definitely not necessary, would be to get your hands on a copy of The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking. Whether you buy a copy or get one from the library, having this book on hand is... well, handy. First, the small size of it already does a good job of making you feel cozy. And the illustrations inside are particularly cute as well. Having this with you will give you the extra reassurance that you're getting into your Hygge zone right. Though, there is no wrong way to Hygge.

Get yourself a comfy corner. A cozy nook. Anything where you feel warm and happy. This could be your bed, your living room, a big fluffy chair in the den. A good spot would be near a window, but definitely not necessary. Light some candles, turn on some fairy lights and the mood is set! I like to alternate between my office couch, which is loaded with pillows and blankets and has a good view from the window, and my bed, which also has a good amount of blankets. It really depends on my mood at the time and really it's just where you feel the most relaxed.

Grab something warm to drink. Tea is a must for me, but this could be anything. It could even be cold! Tea, coffee, hot cococa, anything you fancy! Curling up with a good book or throwing on your favorite TV show or movie is a good start. What I love about Hygge is that you can basically do whatever you want, as long as you feel comfortable and happy.

This is also a perfect time to invite family and friends over for dinner or a game night. Indulging in your favorite comfort foods is highly suggested, even if you're dieting. Throw that out the window and enjoy. This is a time that's meant for you to be the most happy, the most carefree. And like I mentioned before, there is no wrong way to hygge.

Get comfy and be happy.
