"Sit with yourself and close your eyes. Even for 5 to 10 minutes.
This week, I suggested practices that might be familiar to you already, but gave you ideas for making each one spiritual, for taking it out of the ordinary without losing any of the comfort. Creating a hygge ritual should be something you will look forward to it the way you look forward to your daily tea moments, or the movies you watch on the weekends.
But whether you do a brief ritual or just one hygge spiritual practice, the goal is a two-fer: it helps you grow, spiritually, and creates a warm, cozy, hygge moment for you.
But what if you don't have time? Hygge rituals can be brief when there's not enough time for a longer one.
One idea for a brief hygge ritual is to take five minutes for a cup of tea and use one of those minutes for daydreaming about the life you want to create, offering up that dream as a wish as you take your last sip of tea. Or, you could light a tealight while you eat a meal and say a prayer each time your gaze lands on the candle flame.
Watch the video as you think about what appeals to you most. What would your hygge ritual look and feel like?
