Taking inspiration from a Scandinavian in Italy in a week where the concept of home has become one of the most talked about on the planet. Living through long dark winters and days of introspection and near isolation is a Scandinavian speciality – and hygge, as all Danes know, helps. Lifestyler Ingrid Opstad of That Scandinavian Feeling calls Milan home these days and her particularly Nordic perspective on life in one of the cities hardest hit by the crisis caught our eye.
So this weekend and beyond, do as Ingrid does. Take your time. Make a cup of a tea or pour a glass of wine. Unwind. Slow down. Take care. You can read Ingrid’s tips here then start a list of your own. Stay at home and enjoy more time for you and your family. Who knows? Hygge might just be the talent you never knew you had, till now.
