Need more hygge (“hoo-ga”)? We all do!
We’re ready to have the happiest, coziest winter we can (especially while social distancing and limiting trips outside the house). And hygge – the Danish lifestyle practice of happiness, contentment and simplicity – can help us have exactly that.
As we’ve explained, hygge is about experiencing a soothing atmosphere of comfort and wellness (e.g., the feel of cozy blankets, knit socks, warm drinks, glowing candles, comfort foods, and books by the fire).
It’s just the thing to help make the best of our extra time at home as it gets colder and darker outside (and as we stick to our own households to keep our loved ones and communities safe).
Want to know exactly how to have more hygge in your life? We’ve listed 5 bestselling books that are ultimate guides to living the hygge lifestyle, to help you have your happiest, coziest winter ever (even in these challenging times).
Pour yourself a cup of tea and read on for your definitive guides to hygge.
