You know how one bad thing happens, and it becomes that proverbial thread that unravels the entire day?

Creating a Cozy Life Group:
Since you found this article on creating hygge, I’m guessing you like all things cozy living. I created a Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life with over 24,000 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 virtual cozy cabin.
Here are the Cozy Hygge Morning Rituals to Try Today:
Hygge Morning Ritual #1 – Stretch.
While you’re still lying in bed, stretch every part of your body.
Stretching has a calming effect on the body and increases blood flow. It also helps your muscles perform better throughout the day.
Hygge Morning Ritual #2 – Pray.
Ask God to guide you on your day’s path to make the right decisions for both business and personal. Pray for the safety of your loved ones and yourself.
Hygge Morning Ritual #3 – Shower.
While you’re showering, listen to beautiful music and use body soaps naturally scented with essential oils. To change things up, have body wash fragrance to compliment the season you’re in.
For spring, wash up with lavender, rose or jasmine. Summer try basil, citrus or lemongrass. Fall fragrances are pumpkin, cinnamon, and apple. For winter try peppermint, chocolate or grapefruit.
Hygge Morning Ritual #4 – Sip.
Make yourself a cup of hot tea or water with lemon and drink it slowly. Your body has gone 8 hours every night without any fluids, so it’s important to hydrate again right away.
With each sip, give thanks to one thing in your life you’re grateful for and keep the image of it in your mind for a minute.
Hygge Morning Ritual #5 – Creativity.
Start your day by doing something creative. Whether that means writing a few lines for a novel you want to write, or doing a few doodles, or even coloring in an adult coloring book.
When you start your day tapping into creative flow first thing in the morning, you energize the rest of your awake hours.
Hygge Morning Ritual #6 – Flame.
Light a candle and bless one person in your life every day. Sending good thoughts out into the world is always hygge.
Hygge Morning Ritual #7 – Walk.
Set your alarm a little bit earlier so you can take a walk out into nature. Sometimes the entire day goes by without connecting with Mother Earth, so its time to pencil her in.
Hygge Morning Ritual #8 – Nourish.
Make sure you feed your body the finest ingredients you can afford. There’s a world of difference between opening a packaged breakfast item versus making your own meal from scratch.
If you’re making eggs, try and get local organic eggs straight from the farm. Shave off some aged parmesan cheese and add freshly cut chives for scrambled eggs that are heavenly.
You can make your own homemade yogurt and pick berries from your garden. Drizzle it with honey, and you made a masterpiece.
Steel cut oats, topped with almond milk, walnuts, and brown sugar will make your belly happy.
Hygge Morning Ritual #9 – Listen.
On your way into work or running errands, listen to inspiring teachers that will help you be centered and happy as soon as you arrive at your destination.
Thought leaders like Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Maya Angelou, and Jack Canfield are just some ideas on inspirational speakers.
