My “Hygge” Moments: #WordlessWednesday

“The true essence of hygge is the pursuit of everyday happiness and it’s basically like a hug, just without the physical touch,”

Meik Wiking, the author of The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets To Happy Living, and CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen


I chanced upon Hygge thanks to Meik Wiking’s book. And I am besotted by the concept. Though I’m still tad biased towards Ikigai. I feel Hygge is just a small part of ones Ikigai. That shall be a post for yonder, I promise.

“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience,” Wiking explains. “It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe.”

“The Danes are exceptionally good at decoupling wealth and well-being,” he says. “We focus on the small things that really matter, including spending more quality time with friends and family and enjoying the good and simple things in life.”

Here are a few Hygge-lig (pronounced Hoo-ga-like) moments from my life.

  1. Such a lovely feeling visiting your blog and seeing the wonderful hugge-lig pictures, Natasha! Wishing things only get better from here on and you enjoy more such cozy feel-good moments with folks who matter the most, including the four-legged ones! Happy #WW to you and everyone linking up this week. More positivity and more power to us all. <3

  2. The first time I read about Hygge was on Esha’s blog. Being around people we love and who love us back, in the same way, is what I miss about not being in Bangalore. Parenting single-handedly was a challenge then but life was overall feel good with loving friends. Decoupling wealth, money issues and well-being might appear unsustainable to many around me in real life. I have to read this book about Hygge and also Ikigai. My favourite photo is that cute one of the puppies. I love dog pics. I also love the cake your daughter made. I wish your family good health.

  3. Could feel the warmth of the spring thats all set to step in, in this post Natasha. Have heard about the word ‘Hygge’ and have read a post or two about it. But that it. I now have a feeling that I must grab the book about it.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. I just finished reading Ikigai and scheduled the review post. I loved Ikigai and could relate it to our practice also. I am hearing about Hygge for the first time here. Thank you for sharing. Would love to check out.
    On another note, I find the design of your blog extremely sophisticated and classy just like the blogger who resides here 😉 The images are carefully curated and they always seem fresh and bright. I always feel a lot of positive vibes from your posts. keep them coming. love and hugs.
