Cozy Hygge Morning Rituals to Try Today will help you slow down and start your day off on a happier note. Mornings can be crazy, but they don’t have to be.
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” – Marcus Aurelius
If you like hygge, I’m guessing you love all things cozy. I just started a new Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life. 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.
You know how one bad thing happens, and it becomes that proverbial thread that unravels the entire day? Get a jump on the day by incorporating hygge ideas and start setting a positive tone for the rest of the day by becoming more optimistic, grateful and positive.
Here are the Cozy Hygge Morning Rituals to Try Today:
Set your alarm ten minutes early so that you get cuddle time with your significant other or your children. If you don’t have a partner or kids, then cuddle with your four-legged best friend.
Did you know that cuddling strengthens the immune system and promotes happiness? Feeling connected is the perfect way to start your day.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Light a candle and bless one person in your life every day. Sending good thoughts out into the world is always hygge.
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.
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.
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.
