Hygge (Hue-Gah) is the Danish/Norwegian word that describes all things cozy. For the Scandinavians Hygge is more than a feeling, it is a state of mind. Living in the cold and dark for most of the year, they find comfort in the practice of Hygge, and believe in creating an environment that encourages Hyggelig feelings. It is an atmosphere of warmth, well-being and comfort. When you are able to enjoy life’s simple pleasures and being in the moment.
At Jasmine Home Linens, we are all about cozy comfort, and here are some ways you too can feel a little more Hygge.
Unclutter your space. Part of hygge is appreciating simplicity. By taking our the clutter in your surroundings, you help yourself relax. An easy way to make your room feel less cluttered is by switching out your colored or printed bedding for simpler, white linens (we have more than a few options for you to pick from).
Cozy up with a hot drink. Snuggle into your favorite blanket (we recommend our beloved Baby’s Breath Blanket) with a soothing cup of tea. The Scandinavians really believe in the therapeutic powers of a hot drink so part of hygge is enjoying the warmth of your cup as you drink.
Cherish the moment and be grateful. Light a candle, the soft glow and subtle fragrance inspires Hygge. Appreciate the ambiance you have created for yourself. Pick out your favorite book and detach yourself from everything else. Or rekindle personal connections with friends and family in the absence of everyday rush and distractions. Hygge is about warmth inside and out.
