Have you ever heard of hygge? This lifestyle trend is changing the way that many people think about their home and work lives. Pronounced "hue-guh," hygge comes from Denmark, and is more of a feeling than an actual, concrete thing. Hygge is a state of being or, more precisely perhaps, it is a mood. It is a different way of looking at things and a way to slow down and appreciate the good things in life.
Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian term that means a cozy, comfortable feeling. This feeling could be much like the one you get while sipping hot cocoa around the fire with your family on a cold Christmas night. The word comes from a Danish word that loosely translates to "to give comfort, joy and/or courage." It is a gentle frame of mind that is now being used as inspiration for everything from home decor to the way one lives one's life.
