Creating Calm this Season

At its core, Hygge is about self-care.

 

Hygge (hoo-gah) is a Danish word that’s hard to translate but easy to feel. Defined as “a quality of coziness and comfort,” author Louisa Thomsen Brits who wrote The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Contentment, Comfort, and Connection calls it “a practical way of creating sanctuary in the middle of a very real life.”

 

It’s about being kind to yourself with small, delightful things like warm drinks, candlelight, good company, and comforting food. At its core, hygge is about self-care.

Be kinder to yourself this season.

 

Hygge is a lifestyle dedicated to coziness in its broadest sense, where you are relaxed and feeling as at-home as possible. It is about indulging a little so that you are not punishing or denying yourself anything, but being kinder to yourself. Winter is especially the season of hygge, when the dark and the cold send us searching for warmth and light. The word itself is probably related to the English word “hug”, and they both speak of feeling comforted and secure. Ha.Lé embodies the idea of hygge.
