Roughly translated as a feeling of comfort and contentment, Hygge is a Danish word that is thought to hold the secret to staying happy during long, cold winters.
Hygge doesn’t have a direct translation as it’s more about a feeling or mood than a word. It’s about taking pleasure in simple, everyday things that make you feel comfy, cosy and content. It could be cuddling up on the sofa with your favourite blanket, snuggling in front of the fire in your slippers with a mug of hot chocolate, sharing comfort food by candlelight with your closest friends, soaking in a warm, scented bath or enjoying winter walks wrapped up in a cosy coat and scarf.
Denmark is considered one of the happiest countries in the world and it’s thought that embracing Hygge might be the key to their contentment. Appreciating the small joys in life at all times, Hygge followers have tapped into a source of happiness which the rest of the world can greatly benefit from.
