“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.
