The word ‘hygge’ has been slowly washing up on the shores of our side of the Atlantic, with an aura of mystery, magnetism, and permanence. But what exactly does it mean? How do we incorporate this intriguing word into our everyday lives, when there seems to be no exact definition that translates from the beautiful, long-standing tradition of the Danes, to our modern American English vocabulary?
The good news and the bad news are both the same news. Hygge is such an emotive word, that it can be used to describe more things than you can currently imagine….. sitting by the fire with a cup of coffee and your best friend….., a quiet chat in an inviting room lit only by candlelight……, a walk on the beach at sunset…., that perfect mix of cozy blankets, a book, and a storm raging outside your window……..
Hygge is both an atmosphere, a feeling, and a practice that can change your life. Have you been trying to find a moment to catch your breath? A way to calm the crazy in your mind? A way to get off the merry-go-round of obligation and find enjoyment in life? A way to connect more deeply with your people? Join me on this journey of intentionality. You won’t be sorry, and it might even change your world!
