How to Start a Hygge Nighttime Routine
The essence of Hygge is centered around the concepts of coziness, comfortability, and well-being, which make an excellent focus for a nighttime routine. Choosing to make time for yourself each night and end your day with relaxing and restoring yourself not only serves yourself but it also will allow you to show up as your best self to those around you the next day. Here are some products and habits that we encourage you to consider incorporating into your own nighttime routine and channel your inner hygge.
Set The Mood
The first step in any relaxing evening routine is to set the mood of the space you will be spending time in. Whether that is your bathtub, your bedroom, your balcony, or your couch - choose some relaxing burnables or a room spray that will instantly calm your mind and body with aromatherapy.You may also want to bring good vibes into your space with a Palo Santo bundle. This product brings you positive, uplifted and creative energy into your space as you recharge for your next day ahead.
Comfortability is key to a hygge night. Choose fabrics such as cashmere or fur to wrap yourself up in as you prepare for a good night's rest. We also recommend pulling on some cozy reading socks to keep your feet warm as your body winds down and you destress. Another way to cozy up is by making a warm cup of decaffeinated tea and pouring it into a handmade mug with a natural look. This will help you to feel rested and also gives you some extra hydration for your following day.
If you have some extra time in your night routine you may opt to do something such as read a book or work on a puzzle. We recommend reading “The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well” as it will inspire you to incorporate elements of hygge into all parts of your day. If you opt for a puzzly choose something pleasing to the eye such as this Secret Jungle Tea Party 500 Piece Puzzle. Activities such as these give the brain a little break and help you to relax before sleeping.
It is important to take time each evening to care for yourself and your body. It is important to deep cleanse your skin a few nights a week to rid your face of any toxins. Follow this up with a natural moisturizer such as the Moisturizing Pyramid Bar Soap and don’t forget about moisturizing the rest of your body as well using a product like the Lavender Skin Salve.
Incorporating some or all of these elements into your nighttime routine every night or even just occasionally, you will find that you feel more calm in your day-to-day routine and are able to really rest and relax in the moments of life.
