Hygge Fits Everywhere

Hello Lovelies! 

So, some folks are terrific at the details, like budgeting, menu planning, even setting up their weekly schedules and running their lives like a well-oiled machine.  I’m not one of these people.  I would far rather read a good book than tot up my weekly receipts.  Snore. 

Well, I’ve come to the realization that I actually do want to be one of those women with her eye on the ball.  I just have to do it my way, so that it feels less like drudgery and more like pleasure:

I just have to add my own sprinkle of sparkle.  Panache and style can make anything more enjoyable. 

Try it for yourself.  Where can you add a dash of hygge to the less than magical parts of your day?  Grocery shopping feels like a chore?  Why not put on a favourite outfit, write your list with a purple pen, get your shopping, and then take yourself to your favourite café for a treat on the way home?  Grab a table, too, sit down and savour your coffee.  Pack your perishables in a thermal bag, barring sweltering, sultry heat, you’ll be fine.    

It’s easy enough to make handling the details feel more pleasurable, it just takes a little extra effort.  And once you get it done, you’ll be so proud of yourself.  Bonus:  Because you enjoyed the experience, you’ll be ready to take the time to repeat it.  Now that’s a good result. 

Like Mary Poppins says, “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, in the most delightful way.”
