Tips for Achieving Maximum Coziness

Updated: Nov 2, 2022


Gray skies don't necessarily imply a life spent inside.


You might wish you could hibernate till spring as winter drags on, and this year that wish might come true more than ever. But there is joy to be had throughout the slower seasons of the year.


In contrast to the U.S., where the hygge craze may have come and gone, everyday life in Denmark is characterized by this ultra-cozy, contented mood.


The fact is, the Danes are adept at thriving during the cold. You may already be aware that they are the happiest people on the planet, but did you know that many of them credit their self- and home-care routines for their unusually upbeat outlook?


When it's been raining and cold outside and you've been inside for however long? — binge-watching the following show on your "recommended" list could seem like the best choice. Here are some suggestions to channel the Danes and turn a gloomy day into something fun if you want to spice things up.


1. Set the mood


A cozy atmosphere requires candles as a fundamental component. They not only give off lovely, delicate lighting, but they also make the room seem cozier and smell better.


Advice: Use festive aromas to get in the holiday spirit, or pick a summery scent to chase away the winter blues, such coconut and flowery.


2. Bake something


A key component of the warm atmosphere is comfort food. But it starts long before you bite into the cake (or cookie) or slice of pie; it starts much before that.


Browse through your favorite baking books or websites, pick your ingredients wisely, and then take your time to thoroughly combine them while finding pleasure in the activity at hand. The fact that your baking will fill your home with mouthwatering aromas and taste great is merely a bonus.


A helpful hint is to ask a friend or family member who has outstanding recipes if they would be willing to demonstrate how to use them for you. If you can't meet in person, you can arrange a video call.


3. Add texture


Cushions, sheepskins, and plush throws all help to make a space feel much cozier. Put as many pillows and plush textiles on your surfaces as you can find, then curl up.


Advice: Don't be afraid to fake it, or if money is an issue, look for less expensive options.


4. Get out the board games


Gather around the table for some classic entertainment and yank your partner or kids away from their screens. There are options for everyone, whether you want social games that make you laugh out loud or competitive strategic games. Even a deck of cards can provide hours of enjoyment for those of us who prefer to keep things simple.


Advice: Searching for possibilities for online gaming? There are various apps for playing multiplayer games online, and many people have developed inventive methods to use Zoom to play the traditional games as well. Start a game to keep your relationships strong all year long!


5. Perfect your hot drink game


Choose your poison from hot cocoa, hot toddies, apple cider, and mulled wine. Find your own particular dish that is so delicious you can't wait to share it, whatever it may be. Create a virtual happy hour and invite your loved ones.


Yes, you can add whiskey to those cocktails, as a tip. For people who choose not to consume alcohol, it is typically a good idea to master a mocktail version as well.

7. Curate your cold-outside playlist


Create a playlist of music that motivates you to engage in all the activities that make you feel utterly endeared to your environment. Shuffle it, unwind, and play it again.


Advice: Instrumentals are timeless for a reason because they may be used as the background music for almost everything. If you're unsure, the majority of music streaming services feature pre-made playlists, some of which you can filter by mood.


8. Do seasonal activities


Making apples with caramel? Check. Keeping up with your New Year's resolutions or giving up on them? Check. Do you do canning, puddle jumping, snowball throwing, or look for indications of spring? Check!


You may feel the enchantment of even the most miserable weather wash over you by making a plan to do your favorite seasonal activities. Write it down on your calendar, set a reminder on your phone, or find a "accountability partner" (a friend or relative who will give you the nudge you need).
