There's been so much in the press recently about hygge following the release of 'The Little Book of Hygge' by Meik Wiking, founder of the Institute of Happiness. Yeah, I kid you not, there's an 'Institute of Happiness' in Denmark!
According to the Visit Denmark website, hygge (pronounces (hue-gah - kind of) means creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. And eating and drinking – preferably sitting around the table for hours on end discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps the Danish idea of hygge explains why Danes are often considered the happiest people in the world?
So as the evenings start to draw in, how do you get some hygge going in your life? Let's start with the most obvious one - a candle.
