Embracing these Scandinavian concepts can enhance your life
Hygge has been a big deal all winter, and for good reason. The Scandinavian concept encourages us to focus on building a peaceful and cosy lifestyle, which can improve our state of mind and relieve stress by ensuring we are focusing on the things that really matter.
Whilst knitted blankets, fairy lights, mountains of cosy cushions and spending evenings curled up by a roaring fire are not hygge in themselves, they have helped many of us to get through the biting winter. With spring on the way, here are three more Scandinavian concepts that can enhance your life.
It is likely that we have all struggled to get by with too little and felt weighed down with too much at some point in our lives. Centred around sustainability and balance, aiming to ensure that we have just enough within each aspect of our life can boost our happiness.
Pantone is embracing this concept with its colour of the year, aptly named greenery, predicting that environmental concerns and embracing the healing and restorative powers that nature holds will become more prominent over the coming year.
To embrace lagom within your home, focus on items that make you happy and add value to your life. If you have some outside space, start thinking about how you can make it work for you; for example, you could start growing your own vegetables or herbs, or you could create a relaxing retreat where you can go to de-stress.
Embracing nature is one of the key components of a Swedish lifestyle and there are many benefits to getting outside, even when it is a bit chilly. Going for a long walk with your family, cooking with and eating fresh food that will nourish your body, learning how to grow your own produce and herbs, and even introducing some house plants into your living space can positively impact your lifestyle and overall wellbeing.
Carving out time to recharge and practise some self-care is increasingly important within our busy lives. Mysa is a concept that embraces comfort and relaxation whilst living firmly in the moment and spending enough time with the people you love the most.
To experience mysa, you must push aside any worries or stress and focus solely on rest and relaxation. You may find mysa cooking dinner after a busy day or talking with your friends over a glass of wine - the secret is to make time for the things that make you feel happy and content as often as possible.
