What Design Style Facilitates Self Compassion the Most?

Hygge Style Home

Nothing goes together like Fall, Hygge home and self-compassion. If you read my blog a few weeks back, I wrote about self-compassion as the manifesting ingredient that may be missing in your life. It allows you to manifest what you want in your life in an amplified way. You can take your abundance from one to one hundred by loving yourself.

One of my most favorite design styles Hygge is rooted in Danish simplicity.  Hygge is a state of mind and a way of living. Think of curling up with a cup of tea and your favorite blanket to read a good book. This is hygge at its finest. It is all about comfort, simplicity, love and good food. The hygge life is a wonderful way to truly be present and mindful in your life with simple pleasures.

There’s a reason realtors suggest baking cookies before an open house—the familiar scent of a childhood home creates a cozy and welcoming environment. You can also light scented candles. Warm aromas like ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, or orange contribute to a relaxing atmosphere. Create a reading nook for yourself that is full of hygge comfort. But be careful, you may not want to leave.

When someone walks into a hygge home, they say “I love to live here.” A hygge designed home nourishes and supports you in life. It is your respite from the world. It is peaceful. It is zen. I mean the Danes are nominated the happiest people in the world year after year for a reason.

To bring it into your home, think earth element. Think cozy candles, lamps and fireplaces for warmth.  Remember that with this style less is always more. You want to focus on bringing in soft yin energy to soothe and comfort your body and mind. Layer fabrics with different textures and you simply must have a chunky knit blanket to keep warm.

A spa like feel to the bathroom is super hygge. Buy some bath sheets in white or oatmeal and pair it with natural sponges for a detoxing salt bath. You will want neutral colors and natural safe fabrics. Put a plant in the bathroom to bring life. Play binaural beats or any type of music that soothes your soul.

Self-care and self-love are not complicated. Quite the contrary, they are simply taking care of your needs on a basic level with plenty of love. Let the Danish people show you the way with these tips:

  1. Design a hygge bedroom with soft fabrics and add a chunky knit throw to cozy up with at the end of your day. (Remember the bedroom is the most important room for self- compassion.)
  2. Bring plants into your home to work with nature in a simple way.
  3. Take a salt bath, pour some moon charged water or essential oils into your bath to hold your intentions.
  4. Prepare your favorite sweet treat to nourish your body.
  5. Boil some water and have a hot cup of tea to forget the troubles of your day. (Lady Grey for me Please)
  6. Design a cozy reading nook to sneak away to when you need time to yourself.                                                  (This does not have to be large, it just needs to be your space.)
  7. Turn out the lights and burn some candles just for you darling.                                                                                 (Even better buy some candles with crystals in them .)
  8. Go offline and unplug from all devices.
  9. Create your own home facial mask or scrub to nourish your skin.
  10. Buy yourself a soft sweater or colorful winter scarf that feels cozy on your skin.
