HOW TO HYGGE

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside -

If you haven’t seen or heard the word “hygge,” you prob­a­bly will very soon, as the Dan­ish life­style trend is quickly mov­ing into the United States. Pro­nounced “hue-guh,” the term roughly trans­lates to “co­zi­ness,” but it’s much more than that. Hygge is de­scribed as a feel­ing, an experience, or a sen­sa­tion. It’s a way of life that has helped Danes un­der­stand the im­por­tance of sim­plic­ity, time to un­wind and a slower pace of life. So how can you hygge? Light a can­dle with your meals, wrap your­self in cozy blan­kets while read­ing a good book, plan a game night in with friends, or re­lax on a park bench with a cup of cof­fee. Over­all, just be aware of your sur­round­ings and en­joy the mo­ment in a sim­ple, calm way.

Take time for a re­lax­ing bath with an easy-to-store kit of can­dles, soaps and other sooth­ing es­sen­tials gath­ered in a small bas­ket. DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY KRISTI MERCER OF MAKINGITINTHEMOUNTAINS.COM.
