Hygge (pronounced HOO-gah), is a word from which there is no direct translation to English. It is best described as “cozy, wellbeing and loving.”

 It is more a feeling, an atmosphere or an emotion than it is a tangible object. That wonderful feeling of a cozy blanket, a cup of tea, or fairy lights. The most hyggelig (being hygge) times are spent with friends and family, certainly not electronics (ie, ditch the phone). There is usually a treat, warmth and coziness. Hyggekrog is a cozy nook, a place where you can snuggle and read, etc.

Lots of fun words for self-care and being cozy, enjoy it with a cup of tea!
