Five Hygge Ideas for Spring


Hey! Who's looking forward to spring as much as I am?! I don't know about you but I'm done with the cold, dark weather and need some sunshine back in my life. If you're an avid reader of my blog, then you will know how much I bang on about 'hygge' because I blumin' love it and how it can mean so many different things to different people. Many people associate hygge with winter, however I've found ways to experience it all year round. If you're not too sure what hygge is, then you can read my post on what it means to me here. Spring is my absolute favourite season as I love that it represents new life and there will be so much colour back in the world after a  very cold and dismal winter. The tulips and daffodils have started to appear in the shops which means the new season is fast approaching so I thought I would do a bit of a round up of my favourite hygge spring activities that you can experience too.


Renewal  

I associate spring with renewal so I like to get my hygge on by de-cluttering the house, wardrobe, car, office - you name it! There's something delightfully soothing about spring-cleaning isn't there?

I also like to take my time to rejuvenate during spring so a relaxing spa day is on the cards. I was lucky enough to be gifted a Champneys voucher over Christmas so I will definitely be seeking some tranquillity at a spa during spring. 


Herb Garden

I cannot wait to pot up a new herb garden. My next door neighbour has his in his kitchen window and I always admire it as I walk by. I love having herbs on hand in the garden, ready to add to what I am cooking up for dinner in the kitchen. I find that herbs last longer outside and adds to the hyggelig atmosphere when I'm sat eating my breakfast in the spring sun. 


Brunch

Nothing beats a coffee and a catch up with a friend. This is one of my favourite things to do during spring because the mornings are brighter and it's such a lovely way to start the day. The Danes know how to brunch right as when I visited Copenhagen last year I found that the brunch food on offer was to die for - pastries, porridge and granola galore!
  


Bike Ride

I haven't owned a bike since I was a kid, but there is nothing stopping me or you hiring one and taking a bike ride in the countryside or around a nature reserve. I am really looking forward to spending more time outdoors this year so a bike ride could be a lot of fun. 

Seasonal Fruit and Vegetables

Enjoy the new season's fruit and veg and play around with new ingredients! Spring welcomes asparagus, spinach, radishes, leeks, lemons, rhubarb and much more. I love baking up a rhubarb crumble during spring, will be sure to share the recipe with you all soon. 


What are your favourite hygge things to do in spring? Do you have any tasty recipes to share or where do you like to explore?
