A Whole Load of Hygge

Hygge is the word you have always needed in your vocabulary to describe that feeling when you are curled up in front of a roaring fire in a pair of chunky knit socks, cradling a huge mug of hot chocolate, surrounded by loved ones. Ok, that’s a pretty specific scenario i know, but you get what I mean. You do – don’t you?

The word ‘Hygge’ is a Danish word, pronounced ‘Hoo-gah’. The best description I have come across so far is this:

“Hooga? Hyooguh? Heurgh? It’s not important how you choose to pronounce or even spell ‘hygge’. To paraphrase one of the greatest philosophers of our time – Winnie the pooh – when asked how to spell a certain emotion, ‘You don’t spell it, you feel it.'”
– Meik Wiking ‘The Little Book of Hygge
Just searching the hashtag #Hygge on Instagram will show you what a powerful word it is, with pictures of everything from family, to food to tiny special moments, children laughing, twinkling fairy lights and a whole load of coffee! This is such a great testament to the huge meaning behind this tiny little word and how people all around the world are embracing it as a way of life.
So if you are suffering overwhelm, feeling jaded with the daily grind and living life in the fast lane, join me and create more moments on hygge in your life 💗
