In a few day’s more, winter will be here, short and cold endless day’s, to keep the joy of life, Hygge can bring that touch to your life.
From my window all I can see is the white snow everywhere, living in Canada is not hard to wake up every morning during this time of the year and see that the temperature will not get any warmer, not today, and not tomorrow.
When I talk to my friends or neighbors, everyone talks about the long and cold day’s and one common question is when will the winter end and Summer will be back.
Counting the day’s until next Summer can help you to get more winter blues and not enjoy life at all. Changing your mindset will help you to focus on the good life for you, and time will go faster.
It’s time to think about staying at home for the winter, but you can do a few things to make your house a cozy home and get the best during these hard weather months and enjoy more of your life.
It might be the first time you hear about “Hygge”, but you might have heard about the Nordic countries and the long and hard winters they have, one question for anybody who lives in other countries could be “how Nordic people can live there with such a hard winter weather for almost half of the year”
They have “Hygge” to help them to get the best of life during that time of the year, and that is something I have learned, winter weather can be not nice at all, but my home can be nice and cozy every day!
Today I will share with you a few things I do to keep my house cozy to turn it to a little “Hygge”:
The first thing I got, was the little Book Of Hygge, from it I learn about the concept of comfort, coziness and warmth, with this I can pay attention to my self-care.
From the Little Book Of Hygge “Hygge has been called everything from “the art of creating intimacy”. “Coziness of the soul” and “the absence of annoyance”, to “taking pleasure from soothing things”, “cozy togetherness”, “cocoa by candlelight”. Making a few changes in my lifestyle, Hygge is about the atmosphere and an experience, making a home nice, cozy and safe for us.
I know I will spend some time inside, so I did a list of things to do at home to make it more inviting and comfortable for us, it’s not a small list, but it will help me to give my home that atmosphere that will invite us to stay inside and get the best of life during winter.
House can get cold when you live in the country in Canada, getting back home after a long day at work, nothing better than to turn on the electric stove and give the room that cozy atmosphere, I love how the Electric Stove looks like in my home and it helps to keep the room warm and cozy
Vanilla Cream Candle
Winter day’s are short, if we are lucky we’ll see the sun shinning, but sometimes we spend day’s without seeing the sun in the sky at all, some day’s sky will turn white or gray; it’s all about lights, a well illuminated house will help us to focus on other activities inside and not to think about the weather or the seasons.
Candles will add that cozy touch to any room, whenever I plan to spend some time reading or doing some work on my Bullet Journal, I will always be sure to have a Vanilla Cream Candle close to me to give me some more light and coziness.
Cabin Plaid Flannel Throw
Nothing will invite me more than to spend some time reading in a comfy chair or on the sofa a good book as the Eddie Bauer Cabin Plaid Flannel Sherpa Thow, it will keep me warm during those cold day’s of a Canadian winter while I enjoy reading a good book.
Feet can get cold easily during winter, getting a comfortable pair of Acorn Socks will keep my feet warm during these cold day’s at home.
Pawaca Chunky Knit Acrylic Blanket
Oh, nothing will help your home to look to those amazing Nordic homes as the Pawaca Chunky Knit Acrylic Blanket, winters day’s in Canada are short and the night arrives around 4 pm, when I’m back at home after my day at the office, I love to have a homemade dinner with my husband and after it, I love to watch some T.V.
The Pawaca Chunky Knit Acrylic Blanket is always a must to keep me warm while I watch a good movie or series on Netflix. This always help to make winter day’s better and shorter.
Ceramic Aromatherapy Diffuser
When you love your home keep that fresh and happy atmosphere, nothing will be more helpful that a ceramic aromatherapy diffuser, it’s well know by many people how the good aroma in your house can help to make it cozier, thinking about living indoors most of the time during winter, nothing better to keep the atmosphere fresh like a ceramic diffuser.
I love to keep it close where I spend some time reading my book or doing some coloring on one of my adults coloring books, the ceramic diffuser always helps me to feel better while I’m busy working on something else.

When I think about a comfortable room to spend an evening reading or watching a good series on T. V,, I can think of a comfortable chair with a good pillow, nothing better than a Brentwood Mongolian Faux Fur Pillow it has the amazing and luxury look without hurting any innocent animal, and it will keep me comfortable to spend winter day’s indoor.
