I have discussed the concept of mys in a previous post. But now that the weather has turned, the nights are drawing in, the rain is falling and the leaves are turning all the lovely shades between brown, yellow and red, I thought I would write an autumn-themed post for höstmys (autumn mys), because it is a thing! And it may help make the short days and dark nights more bearable for you all.

10 ways to höstmys

The Swedes have a saying “Det finns inget dålig väder, bara dåliga kläder”, which translates as “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes”. Wrap yourself up in a coat and big warm scarf, grab a takeaway coffee and go for an autumnal walk (preferably with a dog and a friend) and admire the changing colours of the leaves
