We live busy lives. Deadlines, phone screens, and responsibilities keep us preoccupied and away from connecting with our loved ones. That’s where the power of hygge comes in. Hygge brings a pause to our daily lives. It’s about being present, being grateful, and fostering togetherness. Time spent with friends and family makes us happy (and who doesn’t want to be happy?). After all, together is the best place to be. Embrace the Danish way of living with these four simple ideas:
Hygge and Chill
TV-time doesn’t have to be impersonal. Cuddling up with your partner or having a friends’ movie night can bring us closer together. Snack on a charcuterie board, sip on some Sequoia Grove wine and sit back. It’s life’s little pleasures that make it all worth it.
It’s widely known that food brings people together. Make mealtimes less habitual and more intentional by inviting people into the kitchen. Slice, dice, and stir your way to quality time.
Cuddle your Pets
Hyggelige connections do not just have to be between humans. If you have the privilege of having an animal in your home, give them an extra squeeze tonight or brush their hair. It’s said that cuddling your pet releases oxytocin, the love hormone.
Start a New Tradition
Making memories with loved ones strengthens our bonds. Plan a game night every month, organize a wine tasting club, or feast on Sunday lunches together.
We hope our hygge tips and tricks make the cooler days of spring a little cozier. Ordering Sequoia Grove wines online means you won’t even have to leave your newly-created hygge haven. Cheers to that.
