Take it from the Danes: embrace hygge for increased happiness.
Cosiness, embracing the moment, the absence of the annoying, taking pleasure from simple things – the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is all about creating comforting atmospheres and experiences. And candles… lots of candles. Even if you’ve not yet outwardly pursued hygge in your life, there’s a good chance that at some point you’ve sensed its warm glow. Want more of that feeling? Pull on your hyggebuksers (those comfortable trakkies you’d never wear outside your house), make yourself a hot chocolate and get reading.
