Hygge for Spring: 5 Ways to Keep Things Cozy

The Danish term “hygge” refers to warmth and coziness and appreciating the simple pleasures of life. It’s about the innate feelings of joy inside you. Spring is the perfect time to incorporate hygge in your life and keep things cozy. Similar to the idea of the holiday spirit, hygge during spring is achieved with a jovial attitude. Here are 5 ways to keep things cozy and bring hygge into your life.

Bring Some Flowers Home
The wide variety of colorful flowers is one of the best parts of spring. You don’t have to just enjoy them when you are outside, instead, you can bring some of those flowers home to enjoy all day long. The cheery blooms are all reminders of our beautiful outdoor world. Bringing them inside helps us feel connected to nature while indoors and creates a sense of comfort and peace.

Have a Picnic
This is another great way to enjoy the outdoors during spring and celebrate the hygge lifestyle. Choose a spot, bring a big tablecloth, invite friends, and have everyone contribute to a picnic. Alternatively, you can also enjoy a solo picnic with your favorite foods and drinks. The spring season offers many opportunities for picnics, so be sure to take advantage of these.

Take a Walk
The spring season invites us to venture outside and going on a nature walk is an excellent way to hygge in the spring. It allows you to fully immerse yourself in all of the scents, sounds, and sights of springtime. So, be sure to take a little time to go for a walk in the woods to celebrate the season refreshingly.

Light a Candle
A hygge lifestyle is incomplete without candles. Candles are a great way to create a warm, cozy environment in the home. Filling the home with calming aromas is a popular way to create a cozy ambiance. Scented, incense candles can set the mood and help to stir you towards feelings of comfort and homeliness. If you don’t want the heat, you can always switch up your regular candles with tea lights.

Sit Outside in the Sun and Close Your Eyes
The hygge lifestyle encourages us to slow down and enjoy the moment. And what’s better than sitting outside, closing your eyes, and soaking in the sun? After the cold winter season, nothing feels quite as good as the warm, bright spring sunshine. Hygge is about creating a healthy life and finding balance and exposure to sunshine is key. It’s soothing and you also get a good dose of Vitamin D.

Spring is the time of new beginnings, rebirth, and a promise that life continues. There are a lot of ways to enjoy the practice of hygge during this season. The core idea of embracing a hygge lifestyle is to take actions that bring a sense of warmth and happiness. The above-listed activities provide opportunities to take genuine pleasure in everyday, ordinary things – which is what hygge is all about.
