Hygge has become a bit of a trendy buzzword. And even if Hygge is a worldwide trend, it’s a way of life for Danish people. One Dane, Meik Wiking, has done a lot of research to understand what Hygge is and why Denmark ranks as such a happy country.
He shares his findings in his international bestselling book, Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living. It’s brimming over with cozy insights, and this is one of Wiking’s easy tips to increase your own happiness levels, no matter where you live.
One of Wiking’s tips was to have your very own hyggekrog.
Now, a hyggekrog might not sound very inviting, but once you know what it is, you’ll want to create one for yourself ASAP.
A hyggekrog is a cozy nook where you can get comfortable and settle in. It’s where you enjoy your morning coffee or your evening tea. It’s where you watch your favorite show, or dive into that suspense novel.
Your hyggekrog is where you feel safe and sound, and it’s just one way to make your home a welcoming, warm place.
Here’s how you can make your own hyggekrog – and no, you don’t need a Scandinavian interior. In fact, the more it lines up with your own style, the better it will be.
But if you’re not sure where to start, here are 3 easy ways to make your own hyggekrog:
- Set it up in a bedroom or living room corner
- Use a comfortable chair with your softest throw
- Have gentle lighting, like candles or warm lamps
Your hyggekrog should be the perfect place to relax and unwind. Give this Danish secret a try to feel happier.
