Coziness

A few years ago, I would tell friends that I have lost the feeling of coziness in my life. I really wasn’t sure what that meant or what  to do about it. I had lost the joy of doing simple things.

During my 30 Day Happiness Challenge with Little Bites of Joy, Andreea posted a photo of a book called The Cozy Life by Pia Edberg. “Rediscover the Joy of the Simple Things through the Danish Concept of Hygge. /HOO-gah/

“…the art of creating warmth, comfort, and well being through connection, treasuring the moment, and surrounding yourself with things you love.”

I love the book. There was one paragraph that really popped out at me.

A wonderful Book by Pia Edberg.

A wonderful Book by Pia Edberg.

“The joy in the simple things, such as making a home-cooked meal, cleaning the house, planting our own herbs, or inviting someone over for tea has been removed because we perceive them as difficult and time-consuming. We need to pause once in a while, embrace the calm, and find joy in the small details, even the task that seem so mundane.”

I started to read the book at the end of my 30 days no gluten, no sugar, no alcohol. Perfect timing. I figured out my next step.

Mindfulness.

My goal now is to slow down, be mindful and enjoy! Embrace the Hygge!
