Glow Insider: The Heartwarming Embrace of Hygge

As bitter cold hits my home state, Indiana, bringing days that barely brush past zero, we find ourselves seeking refuge in the warmth of our homes. It's the perfect time to embrace the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah"), the art of creating joy and coziness in life's everyday moments, no matter how chilly the world outside gets.

If you're never heard of hygge, hang with me! It CHANGED my view on winter and shifted me to enjoying this season two years ago!

 We've got ten ideas to help your hygge in this week's Glowing Soul feature.

Glowing Soul

The Heartwarming Embrace of Hygge
Hygge is all about feeling snug and content, finding comfort, warmth, and happiness in simple pleasures. It's a practice that cherishes the present, whether you're wrapped in solitude or surrounded by loved ones. Here are ten hygge activities that promise to infuse your winter season with a blissful glow:
  • Candlelit Dinners: Bask in the soft glow of candlelight during your evening meals, transforming the mundane into magic.
  • Indoor Picnics: Unroll a plush blanket and enjoy a picnic in the living room, complete with your favorite treats.
  • Knitting or Crocheting: Craft coziness with yarns in a quiet corner, creating your next favorite scarf or throw.
  • Home Spa Day: Pamper yourself with homemade facemasks and a luxurious bath, surrounded by soothing aromas and tranquility. Give yourself a little extra self-love with our Glow Glass Facial Cupping or Glow Wand.
  • Reading Nooks: Immerse yourself in the pages of a beloved book, nestled among a fortress of pillows and blankets.
  • Baking Days: Fill your home with the heartwarming aroma of baked goods, a true essence of hygge comfort.
  • Movie Nights: Cozy up for a marathon of your favorite feel-good films, indulging in the comfort of cinematic escape.
  • Tea Tasting: Wrap your hands around a warm mug and explore the subtle notes of various teas, soothing body and soul.
  • Board Games or Puzzles: Reconnect with family or friends over board games and puzzles, celebrating camaraderie and gentle competition.
  • Gratitude Journaling: Reflect on moments of gratitude, penning down thoughts that bring peace and appreciation to your heart.
