100+ Hygge Journal Writing Prompts 

100+ Hygge Journal Writing Prompts will help get you started on creating that cozy life you crave by digging deeper into your desires.

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” William Wordsworth

Life can be stressful!  It’s up to us to change that by creating a cozy lifestyle that reflects the vision of our dreams.  

Writing down our thoughts and dreams can help us navigate the direction we strive to go in and understand ourselves on a deeper level.

As silly as this sounds, having the proper pens will help you continue on this journaling habit.  Here’s the inexpensive pens I totally love.  

Since you love hygge, I’m guessing you like all things cozy living. I created a Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life with over 5,000 like-minded souls.

It’s a group where we share recipes, pictures of things that leave you in awe, and ideas on how to make your life just a little bit more snug.  Join here to be part of the cozy virtual cabin.
