A Snow Day In Our Life
Hygge – pronounced “Hoo-guh”
It’s a snowy stormy day outside and we’re practicing the Danish concept of Hygge which means something like coziness or a good atmosphere.
Here are my top 10 tips for practicing Hygge on a cold day.
To me. Getting into the flow of art always makes for a playful relaxed atmosphere at home. Playing with sensorily stimulating materials like sand and imagining new worlds.
And moving our bodies in ways that feel good feels great especially in the winter.
Eating yummy nutritious warm food like quinoa, sweet potatoes, fresh veg and string beans.
Taking a nap and watching a favorite show.
Playing games together.
Dressing up extra warm and enjoying the elements – remember no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong gear. For a full list of my gear and discount code on these incredible boots my kids are wearing, scroll down.
What could be more hygge than a fireplace, cup of vegan hot cocoa and some good books?
Sitting down together for a family meal is top hyyge in my book, plus my favorite – hot miso soup, udon noodles, and fresh veg.
Some snuggling and reading before bedtime.What are your Hygge parenting tips?
