What is Hygge and Why You Need It
So if you’ve never heard of Hygge yet let me give you a rough explanation.
Hygge is the art of building a sanctuary and inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open-hearted and alive.
Hygge is a great meditative practice because it provides a warm welcoming place where you can find peace and harmony.
Now how do you create such a place? You already have the pieces you need at home you just have to set it up.
Create atmosphere. Dim the lights, light some candles or incense to welcome in the peace.
Turn of distractions (presence)like your phone or your computer. Basically, anything that can take you out of that moment, turn it off.
Treat yourself (pleasure) have some chocolate, some tea, chips. Whatever is your little bit of happy now is your time to enjoy.
Spread the Love (Equality) share the welcoming space with a friend or family member.
Give Thanks (Gratitude ) take it all in and enjoy the present moment. Be thankful for this time.
Remember the peace( Harmony) take a break from being overly hospitable just be liked and enjoy.
(Comfort) get cozy in your PJs, put on your face mask and relax.
Are you seeing a theme here?
No drama (truce) now is not the time to hash anything out or settle disputes. Keep the conversations light.
(Togetherness) Have healing conversations that reinforce closeness and strengthen your relationship
Make sure you feel protected (shelter), strong, and safe in the space you chose so you can truly be at ease.
