~hygge~{what is it?}

Have you heard of Hygge, pronounced hue-gah.
 Here is the definition off it from  Wikipedia:



Hygge is a Norwegian word with a unique definition. "Hygge" as a noun includes a feeling, a social atmosphere, and an action. The word is also used in compositions as "Julehygge". "Hygge" is also a verb e.g. "Lets hygge" and as an adjective e.g. Wikipedia

Think of it as the Danish secret to happiness.
You can create this by creating a cozy atmosphere.
Try creating a cozy nook with natural textures:

Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating togetherness to getting pleasure from the presence of calm all around you.
And did you know, Denmark has been said to be the happiest country in the world!
Maybe we should be taking lessons.
