15/2/22 ~ What is a Hygge lifestyle?

‘Hygee’ is a word I keep coming across lately. But what does it mean?
After a bit of research I’ve found it comes from Denmark, pronounced “hoo-gah” (not “hi-gey” as I wanted to read it).
It translates loosely to ‘cosiness’ and basically means creating a warm atmosphere and “enjoying the good things in life with good people”; to relax, make time for each other and be in the moment.
It is said that the word itself originally came from old Norwegian where it meant something like ‘well-being.’
And with the Danes said to be among the happiest people in the world, it’s no wonder a hygge lifestyle is catching on!
