Hygge Season

11/17/2017 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments

Winter is swiftly approaching, and as the weather cools off, Netflix and In-Bed-By-Nine sounds a lot more appealing than a night out. Transform your night in with the widely trending Danish practice, hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah"), which is a word used to describe a feeling of warmth and ultimate comfort and coziness, recognizing the moment as special and charming to promote contentment and well-being. Sign us up! We're taking a clue from some of the happiest people in the world, and listing 5 ways to snuggle up and implement this cozy, cure-all method to your winter routine.

1. Snuggle Up.

Getting snug is the essence of hygge and all that it represents. Surround yourself and your space with blankets, throw on your comfy clothes, and nestle into your favorite "spot" (everyone has one). We're loving this chunky DIY blanket trend as a calming craft activity!

2. Warm Beverage.

Soothe your insides by sipping something warm! Break out your favorite cashew milk latte or matcha tea and feel the serenity of the moment. Get creative with your drink of choice by getting some serious inspo with these Hygge-Perfect Hot Drinks!

3. A Good Book or TV Show.

There is just nothing quite like snuggling up with a good book on a cold day. This idea is hygge practice in full force! This could also be achieved with your favorite TV show! Anything that helps you escape reality and fully immerse yourself in your fantasy world for the moment.

4. Add Warmth.

Cozy most always means warm. If you have a fireplace, have it going in your space to add to your own little ambiance and provide additional warmth! Don't have a fireplace? Candles will do the trick too! Multiple candles are best, and it's a bonus if you have the kind that crackle. The soothing sound of a fire in any form within your means creates a hygge dream space.

5. Your Favorite Slow Jams.

Since hygge is all about whatever makes you feel the most comfortable and relaxed, turning on your favorite soft songs is a great way to put your mind at ease and enjoy the tunes! Music is scientifically proven to stimulate emotion; so, soothing songs with positive vibes help to enhance your hygge-night-in experience!
