Today I’m talking about How You Can Create A Real Life Comfort At Home
There’s a myth I can’t stand anymore…. that “magic” is ALWAYS outside of your comfort zone.
That may be true for some of you but it’s definitely not working for everyone.
When you don’t feel safe and secured, when you’re not sure whether or not you’ll have what you need to live… it would be pretty dangerous to risk everything.
I moved 36 times in 37 years…
I was trapped under my house when she collapsed due to a storm… I’ve lost all my childhood memories more than once… I don’t know what a comfort zone is.
Some of us NEED a comfort zone to keep moving
So I decided to create one… a physical one where I choose who comes and who I ban. and guess what? It’s called my home!
In This “real life comfort zone” Episode, I’ll Discuss:
- Treat your environment as a Non Negotiable place where YOU make the rules
- Stand for what matters to you
- You don’t HAVE to accept everything and anyone
Don’t beat yourself up if you’ve been trapped into the old way of thinking about comfort zone. We’re literally bombarded with the same message for so long that it’s almost engrained in our brain.
We mindlessly accept it unless someone’s knocking on your door and challenges what your common sense is regurgitating to you over and over.
That time is NOW! I challenge you to rethink what you know, what you feel, what you say about comfort zone. In fact, I’m on a mission to Unzip Comfort Zone so everyone would know how awesome it is to rely on it/ use it/ expand it one day at a time.
Not everyone grew up with an internal comfort zone.
Even if it’s kind of sad, that’s just a fact. You can choose to create your own external comfort zone by treating your home or your apartment as a haven where you’ll feel safe, secured, and capable.
It takes only a couple of adjustments and you’re so worthy. I know you can do it.
Guess what? The best is yet to come.
What do you think about the idea that “Magic” comes only outside the comfort zone?

No Idea Whatsoever About What Hygge Is?
Don’t worry. I got your back. 😉
If you’re already a Hygge fan, just skip this part and start enjoying today’s blog post.
Still with me?
Ok.. awesome. Time to have fun.
It’s a feeling you can’t buy of safety, warmth, peace, calm, contentment, and everything in between.
Based on cosiness, togetherness, and uniqueness, it’s a whole guide to craft a cosiness-based way of life for you AND your family.
To me, Hygge is like a roadmap to enjoy simple pleasure, slow down, unplug, and eventually becoming unapologetically yourself.
How can I learn more about it?
1/ Read the reviews I made at How The Hygge Book helps me to love my own quirks
2/ Request a special invitation for #TheHyggeLounge at https://www.thehyggeplanner.com/newsletter
3/ Buy Meik Weiking’s book by clicking here (Where you’re buying from this link Amazon will give a percentage to WWF on your behalf. I’m not owning a penny nor a compensation by any means)
How do you pronounce it?
Truth is, no one cares how you pronounce it as long as you can experience it day in and day out.
That said, it’s commonly admitted to be [HOO-GA] .
Keep it simple and don’t over complicate the process.
If you don’t get it the first time, no big deal.
Is there a Hygge lifestyle?
YES!! and I mean absolutely without the shadow of a doubt.
Hygge is more than just a list of things to do or have. It’s NOT a decor (see below for more infos).
If you’re quiet/ introvert, chances are you’re already living a Hygge lifestyle without even knowing it. Now, you can model what you’re already good at to enjoy that cosy, comfy, and homey feelings 24/7.
If you’re totally new and you’d love to implement that simple, decluttered, down to earth, eco friendly, and comfy way of living for your family, that’s totally doable.
Truth it, it’s WHY I created this entire site: to provide you the tools, the resources, and the inspiration to turn your life into a cosiness-based living without adding stress. (To get a weekly dose of cosiness-based pep talk, join #TheHyggeLounge HERE )
Where does it come from?
Hygge comes from Denmark (but the word itself comes for Norway). At some point in history, Norway and Denmark were one kingdom only.
For the records:
– the first mention of Hygge is circa 1840 (which means Hygge is everything but a fad trends)
– Denmark is ranking on the top 3 of the happiest countries in the world every singe year!
– the tax level in Denmark is one of the highest in the world. Yet, the citizens ARE full of happiness.
—> Who doesn’t want to model what the happiest people in the world are doing to be happy, content, and joyful day in and day out? I know I do (so does my Great Grand Mother in her journals)
Is Hygge only a decor for Fall & Winter?
This is a common myth I HAVE to bust once and for all. Danish people don’t stop living 6 months of the year. They enjoy and practice Hygge ALL YEAR LONG.
They just adapt what they do and how they do it. It’s definitely easier to have a snow day in winter and it’s definitely easier to have a BBQ outside in the middle of Summer.
Hygge is not stuck in Fall & Winter nor is a home decor.
If you want a decor, ask a professional to set up a stage… You won’t feel better in a snap because you have a fireplace and tonnes of fairy lights.
If it was that simple, everyone would be happy and medication wouldn’t be needed to avoid anxiety.
(If you’re under medication, NEVER EVER stop without a professional help. Asking for help should be your #1 priority. There’s no shame nor guilt to seek for a better health, or a better mental clarity)
You don’t have to spend $$$ to revamp your living room so it looks like a country living magazine cover… and you can show off on Instagram. Hygge is NOT a popularity contest. There’s no mandatory list of items to buy.
You can live Hygge in a moroccan house, a contemporary penthouse, a cottage close to the sea, a tiny house, a small apartment that looks like a boudoir, or a fancy super modern house. Hygge is what you made out of it.
Eh… you’re done with the introduction.
