Ever hear of fika? Not something commonly practiced in the US, but fika is known as the Swedish coffee break. While simply a part of daily life in Sweden, it’s something we could benefit from! Taking a daily fika is not just a coffee break, it’s a moment to slow down and appreciate the good things in life. While practicing fika, coffee is seen as a true break — a moment to sit on your own or with friends. You carve out time to appreciate the best things in life — family, friends, life, happiness, love. Whereas, here, coffee is usually seen more as a fuel for starting your day and keeping it going. We can all benefit from the ritual of fika!
Here’s where you should ask yourself, how your can incorporate a fika into your day? Well, start with intentionally setting aside a moment to savor a hot drink and tasty treat, whether alone or with friends! The important thing is eliminating distractions during your fika and just simply enjoying the break.
