Art of slowing down
The holiday season is all about slowing down and offsetting the stresses of daily life. Crispy clean sheets, plenty of candles, and endless cups of tea set the mood for kotoilu - delicious moments of staying in and devouring all things homey. A good book or a pile of classic films provides enough entertainment for an indulgent day spent in bed with some carefree napping in between.
Jokamiehenoikeus - Very Finnish thing
The right to enjoy the great outdoors is known as everyman's right. From picking berries during autumn to skiing on icy lakes, the stunning Finnish landscape is worth exploring all year round. After a day out in the snow nothing beats the warmth of home.
Prepare your bedroom for snuggling in - all day long.
Tips for Bedroom Bliss
Fresh cut flowers or fir twigs in a vase next to your bed and dim candlelight look great and can help you calm down in the evening - just remember to blow out the candle before you go to sleep. For a fresh start each day, enjoy an unhurried cup of tea in bed before getting up; you can even jot down your thoughts or dreams in a notebook - a great habit to take with you into the new year.
