So many of us are overwhelmed in day-to-day life. It can be hard to step back and take some time for yourself. I’m sure most of you have heard statements like this before. I discovered Hygge (hue-guh) and have used it as a foundational tool in my life to propel my happiness to the next level. In short, hygge is a Danish term used to describe a cozy lifestyle. The wonderful thing about hygge isanyone can adopt it and anyone can utilize it. In fact, you can start right now. If that cup of coffee you’re enjoying right now gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside… guess what?! That is hygge. Opening the vast doors of this lifestyle is easy. Choosing it every single day might be a harder endeavor at first. Eventually, hygge should surround you and you’ll realize you have been making a conscious effort to promote your own happiness. It will be an amazing feeling once it is achieved. I believe I can demonstrate how hygge has influenced my life and I hope to inspire others the same way as I begin this new journey.
