How to Hygge and stay safe during the festive period

Christmas is one of our favourite times of year. It can also be the busiest time of year, with all of the rushing around in the build up, and can lead to us feeling a bit run down. We want to avoid that happening to you this year so you can continue to enjoy the festivities with your loved one’s.

 Keep Cosy and Carry On.

Hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and taking time to embrace the little things in life. What are those most important to you? The first step to Hygge is to feel comfy, so at the end of the day when you’re at home, put on your loungewear, draw the curtains, snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy some well-earned me time.

Whether you choose to read a book or watch your favourite box set, we recommend you light some candles to create a little seasonal ambience. Wrap yourself up in a cosy dressing gown or chunky throw to keep nice and toasty while it’s minus temperatures outside.

It’s only when you feel fully rested that you can appreciate the company of others. Once you feel energised again, make sure to go out and celebrate with friends and family. Let’s remember, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a seasonal sweet treat and a game of Charades.

Try not to be put off by the thought of going out alone. It’s been found that almost two thirds of adult women (63%) in Britain say they feel unsafe walking alone after dark*. We understand that you may not always have someone with you but that shouldn’t prevent you from leaving the house and meeting up with others. Unfortunately, we can’t prevent a crime from happening but we can send for help FAST if you need it. Visit the One Scream website for more information about the app.
