Work with Kimberly to discover what Hygge is and how can it help you to be happier?
Scandinavia ranks highly on all the main factors found to support happiness: caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance. With the long dark nights, they have to have a mind-set of positivity. So, when it's cold and snowing outside they turn the situation around and light a fire, candles and get blankets. They take enjoyment from the warmth they experience while reading a book by the fire and watching the snow fall outside. This concept around living for now is known as 'Hygge' (which can be pronounced hue-guh).
Hygge doesn't have a direct translation into English but is about embracing the simple moments in life with such joy and appreciation. Whether it be a meal at home with good friends, playing board games or taking time to enjoy a sunny but cold woodland walk. It’s about tuning into the little moments in life that light you up and give you the fuzzy feeling.
