Is it just me, or does it feel like we've already been dealing with winter for several years, even though we're barely halfway through the season? Maybe it's because our winters have become so unbearably cold that we now need to come up with phrases like "bomb cyclone" to properly describe them. Regardless, it seems like everyone could start their 2018 off right by creating, and sticking to, a little thing called a hygge bucket list.
If you don't already know, hygge is a Danish term that loosely translates to mean "cozy," but it's bigger than a single word. It's a lifestyle mantra focused on amplifying feelings of contentment and warmth, and it's one of many reasons why the Danish are consistently rated as some of the happiest people on Earth.
Incorporating hygge activities into your life is super easy, because there are so many varied options. Hygge itself is a loose concept; it can be whatever you want it to be, whatever puts you at ease, whatever relaxes you, or whatever makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
This winter, despite whatever type of apocalyptic storm we might deal with next, creating and sticking to a hygge bucket list is a surefire way to keep you warm, even when the degrees go negative outside (ugh). Here are nine amazingly cozy hygge activities to scratch off your list before we hit the sunny spring season.
