What is Hygge?
Posted by katelyn kenedy on
When life is feeling stressful and hectic, you need to take a moment to incorporate what the Danish call hygge.
One definition of this lifestyle is “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” At it's core, it's a sense of calm and coziness: grabbing a good book, a cup of tea or coffee and your favorite blanket and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
Feeling stressed out myself, what with the epidemic, being quarantined and unable to travel to see family or friends for over a year, I have been deeply Inspired by the Danish concept of the Hygge (taking time to relax and slow down, creating a cozy environment and enjoying the little things like good food, candles, cozy blankets and loved ones) I have tried to incorporate more "hygge" into my own home and daily routine.
I just love the concept of hygge so I created my own definition from the most important elements to me to share with others who want to incorporate more hygge into their lives to create a calming and peaceful sense of well-being!
