Sliding into the Hygge trend

Have you heard about the Hyyge Trend? If you haven’t yet, you will soon. Hygge (pronounced “hoo-guh”), is a Danish word used to describe a state of coziness, comfort, and wellbeing.

Dr. Mark Williamson, director of Action for Happiness, a think-tank and social change movement, encourages people to embrace this trend. He explains  “allowing ourselves some Hygge time to boost wellbeing leaves us better placed to help others”.

Growing in popularity, this trend isn’t going to disappear any time soon – 2017 is supposed to be the year for Hygge.

Want to know more about it and how you too can embrace this trend of wellbeing?

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Indulge in some comfort food – porridge, danishes, cocoa
  • Take relaxing holidays – cozy cottage in the forest, wool socks, your favourite companion (or human) by your side
  • Comfort objects – blankets, candles, pillows, and a comfy chair

There’s more to Hygge than a blanket and wool socks

A key element of this philosophy is to create a space that embraces your sense of wellbeing. If you aren’t cozy and comfortable in your own home, you can’t be Hygge in your life.

Make your home Hygge friendly

  • An open space, such as a family room, can be more cozy if you use a Room Divider to create a special area for you to relax and put up your feet (wearing your wool socks, of course).
