How to Hygge your way through Summer

Hygge the danish art of cosiness doesn’t have to end just because it’s Summer. In fact I think Hygge can be embraced all year round. We don’t have to feel sense of cosiness just in the Winter months it’s more about the feeling we create ourselves all year around, and for me it’s the sense of contentment we feel when spending time with our love ones.

Summer is the perfect time to embrace Hygge. It’s a great time of year to enjoy the slower pace of life with friends and family. Take time to really appreciate the little things in life and not take anything for granted.

Getting outdoors is the perfect way to embrace Hygge this Summer.

Remember your blankets and snuggle up on the beach to watch the sunset at the end of a busy family day at the beach.

Invite friends and family over for a Summer night bbq

Light the outdoor candles, switch on the fairy lights, music, talk, eat, drink and enjoy each others company.

Why not try star gazing

Grab a blanket go out into the garden and wonder at the stars. Depending on where you live you may even manage to spot a shooting star.

Read a book

Reading is very Hygge no matter where you are. Take a book to the beach, on holiday or even just relax in the evening with your favourite book. The perfect way to relax and unwind after a busy day.

Go check out the Sunrise

Whilst on holiday, this is one of my favourite things to do, get up early and head down to the beach, notice the stillness of the day and take some time to yourself before the hustle and bustle of a hectic day. Even when I’m at home I  like to do this in the mornings before the kids wake, sneak down stairs grab a cup of tea and sit in the quiet of the day for just 10 minutes it really is a wonderful way to start the day.

The ultimate Summer Hygge has got to be camping, switch off the WiFi, sleep under the stars, spend time with love ones, toast marshmallow’s around the campfire and get outdoor’s has to be the perfect way to embrace Hygge this Summer.

Are you a big fan of Hygge? How do you embrace Hygge in the Summer months ??

Until next time

    It all sounds so perfect, to re-connect with nature and yourself in some magical ways. Last summer we were lucky enough to see the Persed meteor shower when star gazing, it was really special.

    We have a BBQ on the beach in the evening at least once a week and watch the sunset. It’s a lovely way to come together as a family and spend some time together away from the television and computers. Great tips here! 🙂

    I love your Hygge posts! These are fab tips. I love the idea of getting outdoors more as a family. We get outdoors lots year round, but with teeny ones we are rarely outside after dark. I can’t wait to go camping as a family when they are a little bit bigger and appreciate those sunsets together. Going on holiday is definitely the perfect excuse to step away from tech and be with loved ones. xx
