I am a big fan of Hygge, it’s known as the Danish way to live well. The name Hygge comes for the Norwegian word for well-being. It’s quite similar to the word hug and I think that is no coincidence, it is like giving yourself a hug.
Why should we be looking at the Danes and the Scandinavians for advice on living well? It’s simple, they are the happiest people in Europe(there is even surveys to prove it), they have a good quality of life, good homelife, strong sense of community and a good work life balance. They meet with friends and family more often, and were shown to be the calmest and happiest. They prove to us all that it is very possible to live in today’s world and be happy without joining the “rat race” and fast pace of life we see so many getting caught up with in today’s society. Something they are doing is most definitely working.
To the Danes it’s like a feeling of Home.
So what can you do to introduce a bit of HYGGE to your life?
