For me, January is a time to reset, recharge and reassess. It means cleaning up the indulgences of the holidays and taking care of myself both physically and emotionally. A few years ago, I was introduced to the Scandinavian concept of Hygge which loosely translates into coziness and comfort.
It has completely transformed my perspective of the winter. Instead of dreading the cold and dark days, I see this time as an opportunity to take long hot baths, do a scrub, light a scented candle and set some intentions for the year ahead.
This year, my intention is to travel once again when it is safe to do so. Until then, I will enjoy the comforts that surround me at home.
