Spending hygge time on the sofa

If you live hygge, you can enjoy the fresh winter air with a walk in the forest or by the sea. You look forward to the comfort of your own home all the more. We love spending time at home on cold days. Preferably with a good book, conversations that make us happy, or simply relaxing on the sofa for a few hours. The best way to do this is to snuggle up in a blanket and dress warmly.

Tea time is hygge living

Hygge Living is making yourself comfortable at home with a book, light music and a cup of tea, enjoying a good meal and talking to the family: The Tea time belongs to us in autumn and winter. Often it is the simple things in everyday life that make us happy - hyggelig, as the Danes call it. According to the happiness researcher Meik Wiking, it's all about conscious experience and enjoyment. Especially in the current time you should press the stop button from everyday life and try to create little happy moments that you will remember fondly.

Taste nature with tea blends

It can help to address your senses as well as possible. So not only see, but also hear, feel, taste and smell. This works particularly well in nature: Get out in the fresh air, listen to the twittering of birds, walk over moss, sniff wildflowers. At home you can make yourself comfortable on the sofa - and taste nature with a tea mixture. Well-being and a good mood appear as if by themselves. For example, the tea blends take care of it  Winter tea * and Berry sledge * for moments of happiness.

It's not just the types of tea that are important for you to enjoy your tea. For the Danes, the trappings also play a role. Tea with rum or with kluntjes (candy canes) tastes even better when you drink it from cups that are pleasant to the touch. If there is also a teapot that provides a cozy atmosphere, the tea hour is even more enjoyable. It is even more beautiful when you create a hyggeline atmosphere with candlelight.

The composition of fragrant ingredients such as cinnamon, lemon balm and camomile, cloves, lavender and orange blossoms make it easier to forget stress and hectic. The tea tastes particularly delicious with waffles with fruit or a warm cinnamon roll. In bad weather or after a day full of challenges, a Halali * Herbal tea with sage and honey.

Take time for yourself

The hygge living feeling can also come about by doing things for which you normally don't have enough time. For example paint or do handicrafts, rummaging around in old photos or sharing fresh ingredients and spices with the family in the kitchen conjure up delicious dishes. Good conversations arise naturally.

For example, we started cooking together. We try out new recipes from the countries we get to know on our travels. This is how our recipe collection is created regional recipes from all over the world. However, we do not only take time for cooking. We remember the experiences on our travels and bring them back to life in conversations. We have already spent many a relaxing winter day with it.

I also like to rummage around for books that are set in these countries. With a warm blanket * I snuggle up over my legs on our sofa and reminisce about them Provence or others Destinations.
