Pronounced hoo-ga, I think we all could use a little hygge as we limp out from under all the COVID-19 ramifications of the past year.
Although there is no literal translation, hygge alludes to a feeling of cozy intimacy and contentment. It's all about creating feelings of happiness, friendliness and wellbeing within everyday life.
So how to Hygge Your Life?
- Spend quality time with family and friends
- Avoid multi-tasking
- Remove stressors
- Wear comfortable clothing
- Go outdoors
- Bring the outdoors in with plants
- Don't deprive yourself
- Pick up a book; put down the phone
