Hygge Your 2018

Hygge is a Danish principle and way of living which is all about being cosy and homey. The idea behind it is to make the most of being at home in the house, spending time with the family, and simply being content.

It is a principle which is spreading like wildfire across the world and one which we should all try to incorporate into our every day lives for the better. Here is how you can add some hygge to your life this year.

1. Candles
Lighting is the first major part of living a hygge lifestyle. The people who practice the hygge lifestyle every day believe that the lighting you have in the home affects the way you think and feel. Natural light is preferred which is why candles are a large part of this cosy culture.

Candles can be used in any season, not just the colder months, and it is always good to have some plain white candles or tea lights in your home. In the winter, the Danes burn candles all day to invoke that feeling of coziness and warmth in their homes, and in the summer they light them as the sun sets and the homes are shrouded in darkness. The reason candles are such a big thing is that they provide natural, warm and soft light. So get yourself some candles this weekend and enjoy the feeling of living in natural light in the evenings.

2. Invite Friends and Family
Hygge is all about being homey, and being homey ultimately involves being surrounded by the people we love. Invite your family and friends over for a meal one night and spend the evening talking, eating great food and sitting by the fire. Leave your mobile devices in another room too so that you can all enjoy each others company uninterrupted!

3. Go for a Long Walk
As we said, a big part of living a hygge lifestyle is being present in the moment and enjoying life as it comes. This is why many love to enjoy going for long walks in the countryside or on the beach. It is a perfect time to think, talk and enjoy the company of your companion.

4. Have Some Quiet Time
A big thing in Hygge is cosiness, and being cosy in our own homes can mean a number of different things. It could be that you sit down with a good book and a blanket at the end of the night, or maybe you all watch a movie as a family. Enjoy your relaxing time at home and do something that makes you happy.

5. Make your Home Hygge
Make the time to detox your bedroom, clear out things you don’t need and spruce up the space you live in. Danes value their homes and the time they spend living in them, which is why it is important to make that bit of extra effort with your home. Make sure there are plenty of house plants, candles and simple furniture in your home to make it feel homey and uncluttered.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
