Gift Guide: Tips for a calm, joyful holiday season
While the sense of excitement and anticipation builds around the holidays, often the overwhelm does too.
If this is how you’re feeling, you might like to take moment to contemplate the Danish philosophy of hygge (pronounced ‘hue-guh’).
In essence, it captures the feeling of calm and contentment. It is the essence of home and safety. Enjoying simple pleasures like warm socks. Layers of warm clothes. Snuggling under blankets on the sofa with friends. Good food, good conversation and soft candlelight.
Just a few moments of quiet contemplation and gratefulness can help you bring this sense of hygge into your day. If you’re struggling, these daily practices can help to center you:
Brew a cuppa and sit down to drink it slowly, savor each sip.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, close your eyes and simply notice your breath.
Curate a beautiful scent with candles, dried herbs or spices that remind you of happiness at home.
If the holiday season is stressful, these rituals can create space for calm and bring new joy to your usual traditions.
“Every morning you rise, I want you to remember this: there are amazing things to be part of, and fight for, and feel, because the world will unlock hundreds of doors when you give this day all the courage, love, and intensity you can.” – Victoria Erickson (author, Edge of Wonder)
