Today I am not at my desk. I’ll be out all day seeking for #coursehygge if there is such a thing in York. I’m training to do proofreading, having figured out that it might be a useful skill for both day job as an Office Ninja and night job as a writer. So as you read this on Monday (morning, noon or afternoon teatime) please … Continue reading Half Term Hygge: A free Infographic
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, … Continue reading I went to the Woods….
I am feeling a little paralysed at the moment. Not literally, of course, but metaphorically. My brain is a swirl of issues and worries and matters that all too often threaten my smooth nature. It’s not very hyggely. Work (by which I mean my day job as Office Ninja at Peter Kneale Solicitor) has recently expanded to 6 days a week as we trial Saturday … Continue reading Finding Hygge in the Small Things
Somebody taught me how to do infographics. Ok, not really, but I got a few slide examples and I’m always on for a try of anything, so I gave it a go. I have been wanting to do a Year of Living Hyggely for a while. You know I try to live everyday with a bit of hygge in it, whether it’s Spring, Winter or … Continue reading A Year of Living Hyggely: free infographic
It’s a funny thing, but I can almost separate my Hygge book reviews into those before I wrote a book about hygge myself and those I have thought about and not written since. It’s almost as though I think that reviewing someone else’s book on hygge would be like the mother in maternity who looks at you baby and sniffs, before saying “It’s alright, but … Continue reading Hygge Book: The Art of Hygge by Jonny Jackson and Elias Larsen
I think I need more practise on the computer on how to upload PDF files to share. I think I do. I have been busy this last week with two things: I am still getting on with writing the next book in my hygge series (What! You hoped I’d stop at one! Fie, what foolishness!) on Summer Hygge. Yesterday was the chapter on what to … Continue reading A gift from me to you on a sunny Wednesday… No strings attached.
The Book Tour continues…. Taking care of ourselves and those we love is a part of hygge. We only have one life, one body and to be free to enjoy time with those we love for as long as we are able to, it behoves us to take care of that body. Hygge has a very balanced way of looking at life. Not too much … Continue reading Book Tour Day 3: Hygge is…. Taking care of our own body
Having a treat is an important part of hygge. Real life is hard, work does have to be done and if you don’t do it, then who will? But tied up with the hard work has to be the reward. And, yes, I know that reward is intrinsic, pleasure in a job well done and that you can get by without a treat… but … Continue reading Hygge is…. having a treat occasionally
