    I keep seeing settings that have become 'hygge' and seem to have completely redecorated and bought alot of new, expensive, wooden toys. I'm focusing on the outdoors and taking time to slow down and just 'be' xxx
    Love this ! sounds perfect

    I think the childminder you are referring to is Sam Goldsworthy? I follow her page - but she must have spent a fortune on lovely resources. I think a lot of people following the hygge approach have latched on to the baking and hot chocolate side of it!

    There is no direct translation for the word 'hygge'. It's about cosiness, togetherness and being present, slowing down and not focusing on materialistic things. There's a big focus on nature too. All of this in turn is good for your own well being.
    I follow them too, they do have lots of lovely resources which I just don't have the budget for. We love a 'higgle' bake but now I have gone back to little ones I don't think we will be baking just yet!

    I have concentrated a lot only own well being side in regards to Hygge as this job takes over your life and have tried to get a bit more of a work life balance.

    Loocyloo and pixie I like your ideas.

    If I focused on the lovely resources and baking, I would just end up fat and skint!

    So, did anyone do the hygge online autumn conference event?

    I didn't end up buying a ticket in the end, and as it happens I had family stuff going on, so couldn't have watched/listened to it anyway.
