Hygge is about embracing a feeling of comfort, and it can be a great tool to help us process and let go of moments that trigger us. Having a hygge atmosphere can help us create a safe and comfortable space for ourselves.
We can light some candles, put on some calming music, and grab a cup of tea or a warm blanket. This can help us to relax and take a moment to process the emotions that we are feeling.
It can be helpful to take the time to reflect on the moments that trigger us and why they made us feel the way they did. We can practice some mindful breathing, journaling, and self-care to help us to process our feelings and gain a better understanding of them.
But doing so in a hygge environment can also help to provide us with a sense of peace and security. We can focus on the warmth and comfort of the moment and the things that bring us joy.
This can help us to shift our perspective and to let go of the triggers that we experienced. We can take the time to be kind to ourselves and to forgive ourselves for any mistakes that we may have made.
By utilizing hygge, we can take a moment to process the moments that trigger us and to let go of any negative emotions associated with them. This can help us to create a more positive and peaceful environment for ourselves and to move forward with more clarity and understanding.
So let's look at how we can use a hygge evening routine for letting go...
Hygge Evening Ritual for Letting Go
(1) Light a candle and place it in a special spot in your home.
(2) Sink into your coziest seat and/or grab a cozy blanket or throw, wear fuzzy socks or slippers.
(3) Put on some relaxing music. Since this is an evening routine, make it soft and soothing.
(4) Brew a cup of tea or prepare a hot beverage of your choice. Nothing with caffeine, so it doesn't keep you from falling asleep.
(5) Take a few moments to reflect on the day and the things that happened. What went well, what didn't go so well?
(6) Write down any worries, concerns, or thoughts that you have or negative experiences and put them into a letting go box.
(7) Take a few deep breaths and practice a few moments of mindfulness. Visualize a warm golden light chasing away any negativity.
(8) Read an inspiring book or listen to a podcast that helps you relax.
(9) Spend a few moments in silence and reflection. What are you grateful for from the day.
(10) Blow out the candle and let go of the day.
Letting Go Visualization
Visualization: Imagine a beautiful garden with a winding path. On either side of the path are tall trees with vibrant green leaves.
As you wander down the path, you come across a bench.
Sit down and take a few deep breaths. As you exhale, imagine the triggers, stressors, and worries leaving your body and dissipating into the air.
With each breath, imagine the leaves of the trees absorbing the triggers and stressors. As you inhale, inhale the peace and calm of the garden.
Whenever you feel triggered, visualize returning to the garden and letting go of the triggers and stressors.
See you next time!
