Gemütlichkeit is a German word that is something we all know but is a challenge to precisely translate. It comes from the root Gemüt, which means "heart, mind, feeling”. It’s that cozy goodness that fills you up when you’re surrounded by loved ones. Warmth and good cheer. Comfort and peace of mind. A state of well-being that springs from a sense of belonging and community acceptance. It's what happens when we take care of ourselves, and each other, mind-body-spirit.
At a time when so much is separating and keeping us apart, we can still spread the vibe of well-being and social acceptance. We have a few ideas to inspire you to cultivate a generous spirit of gemütlichkeit this Oktober...
Most importantly, you can't rush gemütlichkeit. So we invite you to slow down, relax, and enjoy all the good little things in life 😌
