“Making things hygge or koselig is not just about fuzzy blankets and warm beverages. It’s about feeling content — a sense of coziness that is not just physical, but psychological.”
I grew up in what is the most like Scandinavia that we have in the US, Minnesota, it's why so many folks who came from Scandinavia settled there. (Full disclosure I'm descended from those people.) But I moved to a rainy climate in graduate school and that tested my metal to be outside in the winter. I can handle the snow and cold, but rain gets me. This year, with what's going on, I'm determined to get outside and I have been more in the last month. It's been very good for my mental health.
