In the cold months of a Midwest winter, Mother Nature doesn’t provide much warmth. Luckily, we can provide the warmth for our family and our friends, and just as importantly, ourselves. This is the heart of hygge. It is not complicated or exhausting. Here are some easy ways to generate warmth:
• share a hug or kiss
• hold hands
• light candles
• cuddle up with cozy blankets
• enjoy some comfort food
• recall memories from a favorite vacation
• write a thank you note
• call a friend
• serve mugs of hot coffee
• make a gratitude list
• eat chocolate
• drink red wine
These ideas require small efforts and take advantage of what we have right in front of us, which is exactly what hygge is all about!
Write me with your ideas of generating warmth in your life: in your home, your office, your car, mobile home… Where else do we need warmth?

I am working at my desk (buried in papers), with a lit candle, basking in warmth, sending you my warm thoughts, full of love! ♥ ♥
