I recently came across the trend of hyyge. It's a Danish concept, which put most simply, is all about really appreciating and enjoying the little things in winter, it does mean and include more than just that though. The clocks have gone back and I’m still adjusting to it being dark so early, but seeing as how winter is truly upon us, I’m sharing some of the little things I do love and appreciate about winter, inspired by the concept of hygge.

HYGGE

 1. The art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive; 2. to create well-being, connection and warmth; 3. a feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other; 4. celebrating the everyday.

The definitions I've listed above I found on Pinterest, but effectively though, the hygge trend means celebrating winter and winter cosiness is now kinda cool XD. So clean up your place, make it super cosy, and appreciate snuggling down inside during the cold dark evenings. If cleaning isn’t really your thing, get the peeps at Handy.com to sort it and focus on appreciating the little things.

Here are some of the little things I love about winter, with a nod to how they fit in with the concept of hygge.

Hot Drinks (extra appreciation)
If you know me, you know I share my strong appreciation for hot beverages all year round, but you know you have extra appreciation for hot drinks during the winter. I'll have a giant mug of hot chocolate please!

Candles
Hygge means anything that makes your indoor space feel cosier should be embraced.
Outerwear
Winter means you can wear super comfy outfits and as long as you love your outerwear you don’t need to worry too much.
Homeware
Spending more time indoors means you’ve more reason to have your interior looking good. A new throw for your couch? Go for it.
Connect With Nature
While what really appeals to me about hygge is the appreciation for creating a cosy space indoors, connecting with nature and feeling grounded is also part of the whole idea, so embrace woodland walking in the cold while wrapped up warm.
Soup & Hotpots
Comfort food for when you come in from the cold! Hygge means appreciating good wholesome food.
Loungewear, Socks and Sweaters 
Embrace hygge in your style, sweater weather is where it's at, you wanna be super comfy when your cocooned up inside – ditch the worn out PJs and get yourself  some comfy loungewear, cashmere is the cosiest thing ever.
Domesticize Yo’self
Whether it’s baking or knitting, hyyge is about embracing those indoor activities that make you feel content!
Unplug From Tech
I love my Netflix  but embracing hyyge means ditching telly & tech and spending quality time actually conversing with the people you care about.


Here are some books on hygge if you want to learn more about what it's all about, or maybe gift to someone who loves the little things. Happy hygge!
