I am the last person on Earth to read The Little Book of Hygge, but it inspired me to share with you some ideas I have on how to hygge during the summer, as I believe there’s a misconception that it’s a winter only activity.
No candles? Get out in the daylight
Candles are a huge part of the hygge concept, but if you’re like me, you may not want to light candles in summer. Instead, take advantage of the longer daylight hours by going for a walk in nature, with a dog, a friend or family member. You could also enjoy the sunrise or sunset.
Have a picnic
Get out your hamper, plastic cutlery and utensils, plus the biggest blanket you can find. Then, grab your friends, lots and lots of yummy food and drink, and make your way to the closest park. Sunhat and sunglasses optional but recommended!
Choose your favourite summer outfit
I don’t know about you, but during the warmer months I simply fall in love with maxi dresses. Choose your favourite outfit from your wardrobe, or go shopping for a new one. I always feel fantastic when I put my dresses on, and wearing what you love is a great way to brighten your mood.
Play games and turn off the TV
I LOVE playing board games. Invite some friends over, and choose a game to play! Or you can find games in some pubs and coffee shops. If you’re at home, get out the drinks and snacks too, and open up the windows as things could get quite heated!
What are your summer hygge tips? Or do you think hygge was a winter 2016 trend that we won’t see again?
