Again it is this time of the year: Winter.
Add to that cold temperatures and long nights, but also hot chocolate by the fire, sparkling lights and fluffy blankets.
Hygge (pronounced somewhere between "hoo-gah" or "hue-gah") is the Danish concept of feeling comfortable and content. It is a lifestyle trend that recognizes a feeling or a moment that is charming or special. It's about being present, being grateful and enjoying simple pleasures.
Where could you find a small hygge in Regina? The concept is personal to everyone, but here are a few suggestions on where to start.
In my apartment building not only pets are not allowed, but I also have allergies that prevent me anyway from having a cat. To find my friends (because I love them so much), I like to stop by Excalipurr Cat Cafe on Albert. I order a London fog and go in to make myself comfortable with the cute little kittens (all of whom can be adopted) Regina cat rescueBTW). If you want to take it one step up, join them Decorating Cat Sugar Cookie Event November 20 for a different way to experience Hygge.
2. Go to a movie – but bring a blanket
It may seem a bit strange, but I take a small fleece blanket with me when I go to the movies. Theaters can be a bit cold, but it is also another way to relax and take a movie when leaving the house. Look at a little less Hollywood im Regina Public Library movie theater or take the big screen with you IMAX film at the Saskatchewan Science Center.
3. Go float
Take a bath that will blow you away. Come over Now float to indulge in a little hovering therapy and sensory deprivation. Float capsules or cabins are filled with warm water and Epsom salt. Get in for a 90-minute session to relieve stress and get away from it all. If you want to know more about how it all works, read my first-hand experience on this blog.
4. Get a fresh cinnamon bun from the Green Spot Cafe
The Green Spot Cafe It is rumored that some of the city's best cinnamon buns are made (they are also huge!). Take your time and have dinner over a hot cup of coffee or get a dozen to share with friends and family. I would also highly recommend taking one or two homemade breads with you.
5. Visit the Regina Floral Conservatory
The Regina Flower Conservatory is one of those places where you can escape the chill of winter and enter a tropical, green environment. The best part is that it's free to spend time. However, I recommend that you make a donation to help the volunteers of Regina Garden Associates who run the room. Bring a picnic, meet a friend over tea, or just stroll through the variety of flowers and plants on their regularly changing displays.
