August – the last days of summer are approaching. May I suggest 10 ways to keep the Hygge feeling through these last summer days:
1 – Go camping with a group of friends. If camping won’t work, maybe a day in the mountains.
2 – Host an outdoor party under the stars.
3 – Head to the lake, the beach, any large or small body of water to watch the sunset. Take a blanket to sit on or wrap up in if the air is cooling down.
4 – Buy a hammock to lounge in the backyard.
5 – Create an outdoor living space. Fill it with tables, chairs, blankets and pillows. Hang out there as much as possible with family and friends.
6 – Bring fresh flowers inside.
7 – Make homemade ice cream with fruit that is in season.
8 – Take your shoes off and walk around your just sprinkled lawn.
9 – Hang your laundry outdoors so it can dry in the hot summer air.
10 – Take a hike with some old friends and make new friends at the same time.
After all Hygge does mean creating a nice cozy place to enjoy the good, simple things of life with the people you most enjoy life with!
Here’s to a fabulous month of August – ending summer and beginning fall. Make sure you live for the moments you can’t put in to words!
