What is Hygge? (hoo-gah)

Updated: Feb 5

"Hygge"


Have you heard the Danish term, Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah)? Hygge. The art of building a haven and connection, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted, and alive. To create well-being, safe and warmth, A feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other. Celebrating the everyday.


Hygge happens when we commit to the pleasure of the present moment in its simplicity. It’s there in the small rituals and gestures we undertake to give everyday life value and meaning, that comfort us, make us feel at home, rooted and generous. It generally translates to “coziness” in English., but really, hygge is so much more than coziness. It’s about enjoying every moment, the little moments that you feel warm and happy.


Hygge is about appreciation of the small things…it’s about how we give and receive. Its about spending time with family, watching your grandchildren grow, being there to read stories and teach them the love of a good book and beautiful music. To enrich and inspire the souls of each person we touch.


Life is beautiful. Remembering that you are loved, always and always.

A few loves of my life, my daughter, and my granddaughters. 2019
