16 Hygge Inspired Quotes to Help Relax in 2022

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

Why not make relaxation a priority for the year 2022? It is hard to relax when we have many things to worry about, especially in a pandemic. Let's forget about our daily chaos for a minute. Take a deep breath, sip your favorite tea or coffee, and/or sit by the fireplace. Whatever relaxes you.

Still not relaxed? Hopefully, these quotes will inspire you to settle down and be in the present moment:

Hygge is about giving your responsible, stressed-out achiever adult a break. Relax.

Meik Wiking

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.

Mother Teresa

Don't make things too complicated. Try to relax, enjoy every moment, get used to everything.

Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.

It's the best feeling when you wake up and it's warm and cozy, and you don't have to go to work.

For me, there's nothing better than curling up in my favorite blanket on a cloudy or rainy day and just knit. Especially in front of the fireplace.

Give me a hot drink, and I'm happy. Hot cider, hot chocolate, coffee... I like all winter beverages!

I love the scents of winter! For me, it's all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce.

I'm very, very lazy. I love to sit in a chair and look out the window and do nothing.

If it's the right chair, it doesn't take too long to get comfortable in it.

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.

Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.

Meik Wiking

Smell the roses. Smell the coffee. Whatever it is that makes you happy.

Hygge has been called everything from ‘the art of creating intimacy,’ ‘coziness of the soul,’ and ‘the absence of annoyance,’ to ‘taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things,’ ‘cozy togetherness,’ and my personal favorite, ‘cocoa by candlelight.’”

Meik Wiking

Sometimes I light incense and a candle. It's so peaceful and quiet. The steadiness of the energy and the reliability of the warmth have a calming effect.

We were all tired after hiking and were half asleep, sitting in a semicircle around the fireplace in the cabin, wearing big sweaters and woolen socks. The only sounds you could hear were the stew boiling, the sparks from the fireplace, and someone having a sip of mulled wine. Then one of my friends broke the silence. “Could this be any more hygge?” he asked rhetorically. “Yes,” one of the women said after a moment. “If there was a storm raging outside.” We all nodded.

Meik Wiking
