If there's one thing we envy our Danish neighbors, it's their lifestyle, that particular 'hygge' that has made them the happiest people in the world since 1973! To ward off the cold that has already set in and the night that is falling faster and faster and the confinement, we have prepared a 100% feel-good program for you, made in hygge...
Take time for yourself
In a world where the requirements are always more important and where time is short for each of us, it is important to know how to listen to each other. Spending a weekend in digital detox mode, going to the hairdresser, having a relaxing bath, a manicure or treating yourself to a massage with a girlfriend... Taking time for yourself is a fundamental pillar of the hygge philosophy, which encourages us to relax and let go.
Create a beauty space
To enjoy your beauty rituals, gather your 'essentials' in one place. Hang a pretty mirror at the right height then display your favorite accessories, your jewellery, your creams and other treatments… If you want, place a candle or a plant. The principle ? Let it be simple and practical but above all, let this little corner delight you.
Start a new sport
We know, thanks to endorphins – the famous happiness hormones released during exercise – practicing regular physical activity is good for the body as well as the mind. So, if you've never tried it, try to find a sport that suits you: boxing, dancing, swimming, climbing...
Plant your interior
In Scandinavian countries, plants are considered real decorative accessories. Thus, cacti, green plants and other fresh flowers represent precious assets for activating feel-good energy by giving us an element of nature to admire and take care of on a daily basis... To be distributed in the house, without moderation, therefore but always in a place of choice.
Build a great playlist
Music is the key to a hyggeling environment. We therefore advise you to create a 'positive attitude' playlist, composed only of catchy music that makes you want to dance, sing and smile. Already because it will always serve you – to the next birthdays, farewell parties and other celebrations… – but also and above all because it will give you the energy and will surround you with good vibes as soon as you listen to it.
Schedule a nature outing
If there is indeed an inexhaustible source of small pleasures, it is nature. Just as good for meditating, walking, taking your pet out or just listening to the sound of leaves and small branches crunching under our feet... For all those who live in the city, find an unobstructed view in the heart of nature (field, sea, mountain or forest) instantly provides a feeling of freedom and happiness. All these little pleasures linked to nature are hygge moments to cultivate as much as possible. Whether you are more into the forest, the countryside, the sea or the mountains, wild getaways and beautiful walks are perfect for letting go and reconnecting...
Get on a bike
There are a million good reasons to get on a bike. Already because it's eco-friendly but also because it will allow you to do some sport (for free) and keep you healthy. In reality, cycling is almost a regressive pleasure that takes us back to our carefree childhood… Riding a bike provides an unexpected feeling of freedom that we only discover by practicing, face in the wind. A guaranteed hygge and feel-good moment!
Take a vitamin cure
The change of season is always the right time to start a cure. In the event of a slump or a drop in diet, taking vitamin D and C can restart the machine. If in doubt, do not hesitate to consult your doctor who will be able to advise you and set up an effective treatment.
