The last couple of days a lovely group of people have participted in the Cosy Club's November event on Facebook. It has been an honour for me and as a final thank you for this time, I would love to share my secret family recipe of cinnamon knots.
A classic hygge theme is togetherness and the social part of being comfortable and at ease. We identify ourselves with different ways of living, our family, and friends, our co-workers or maybe with people that share the same beliefs that we have.
Earlier this year I asked several people what hygge ment to them. I have gathered some of the answers below for you to get inspired on your own personal hygge journey.
Hygge is often considered to be something you share with your family or a group of friends, but actually the very core of the lifestyle could easily be incorporated in your own personal daily routines to include brief moments of self-care that are so vital in our modern, occupied way of living.
A few days back I was talking to my friend and I asked her how she was doing. Well, she said, I'm feeling really tired. And kind of blue, she added reluctantly. And that's the thing, it can be difficult to share the overwhelmed feelings that sometimes emerge, when the Autumn kicks in. Because what can you really do about it?
Hygge is a great way to destress and you really don't have to look far to get access to all the nice benefits of a calm, relaxed moment at home.
A few tips and tricks will get you far in no time.
The Summer holiday seems so far away already. We had a couple of amazing weeks in the Southern part of France this year escaping a rather cold and rainful month of July in Sweden. I had promised my kids, well that's not entirely true, I had promised myself to visit Laduree's shop on Rue d'Antibes in Cannes, as I have this thing for beautiful surroundings and cakes.
This weekend has been all about having a break from all the must do's. The last months have been so busy and I just realized that we haven't had a single weekend with out plans for such a long time. So no plans, just each others company and a lot of laundry!

Your situation is even more difficult, when you have little people depending on your abilities as a parent. So how do you move on after a atressfull experience?
