Hygee: pronounced hue-gah, this Danish word describes a level of coziness which enables a sense of well-being and contentment.
Let’s face it. Winter can drag on for quite a while, and in Kansas, it can be sunny and 75 in November or below zero with blizzard conditions in February. In the beginning of winter, we’re all looking forward to sipping hot cocoa by the fire, and curling up with a good book. As the weeks fade into months, we start getting twitchy for sun and spring again, and we desperately need to get out and explore.
But we don’t have to wait for 75 and sunny to bring about feelings of happiness. Channel your inner hygee and check out Merriam’s winter warm fuzzies below!
If all else fails and you’re still longing for those climbing temps, go ahead and sip more hot cocoa by the fire with a good book. Spring will be here before you know it.
