3 GREAT PODCASTS FOR HYGGEE LOVERS…

With us all spending lots more time at home it gives us more time to listen to podcasts and there are an abundance of them out there.

This is my list of my top three to listen to this month.

1. Player FM has some great Hygge inspired Podcasts but I loved this one called The HYGGE Phenomenon Living Simply Luxuriously which is the 5th most downloaded episode of all time on Player FM.

The simple sophisticate is someone who prefers quality over quantity, sensible living over mindless consumption, personal style instead of trendy fashions, has an insatiable curiosity for life’s endless questions and a desire to live a truly fulfilling life rather than being led around by the nose. Inspired by her lifestyle blog The Simply Luxurious Life, Shannon Ables (the original Simple Sophisticate) shares with listeners tips on how to live a refined life on an everyday income. From achieving your goals, preparing a memorable meal, creating a capsule wardrobe, traveling the world (Francophiles tune in as Paris is a favorite destination), and living life to the fullest without breaking the bank, living well is really quite simple. You can download the free Player FM’s app which you can get from the App Store or Google Play.

2. Player FM has another great Podcast – HYGGE in the Early Years. A weekly Podcast embracing HYGGE to improve on self-care and happiness for Early Childhood and Education by Audioboom. Podcast Number 14, Nature and Lockdown is an episode where Kimberly shares some ways we can embrace nature during the lockdown.

3. My third choice is HYGGE Girls Podcast on podtail.com and Episode 27 is about How COVID-19 is Impacting Your Sleep & Ways to Help. Aired each Monday, host Madi Bones discusses how to achieve this sense of purpose and happiness through topics on health, social media, passions and more. It’s available direct from the Podtail website.

TRY TO RELAX HYGGE STYLE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC…

If you haven’t heard all about HYGGE then I would be extremely surprised but basically the word ‘Hygge‘originates from a Norweign word meaning ‘well-being‘. For almost five hundred years, Denmark and Norway were one kingdom, until Denmark lost Norway in 1814. ‘Hygge‘ appeared in written Danish for the first time in the early 1800’s, and the link between hygge and well being or happiness maybe no coincidence. Danes are the happiest people in Europe according to the European Social Survey and found in The Little Book of Hygge, The Danish Way to Live Well‘, by Meik Wiking.
