This Scandinavian country has consistently ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world, and the answer might lie in the concept of hygge. The hygge approach to life involves finding happiness and contentment through simple moments and simple things. Danes prioritise breaks in their daily lives to fully relax and recharge. They mindfully take a moment to pause, spend quality time with their loved ones, or take care of themselves. Hygge, they believe, leads to lykke (happiness). To create a hyggelig (hygge-like) atmosphere, light candles, pull up some throw blankets and snuggle up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate. Hygge is all about simple pleasures, not chasing trends, being glued to your phone, or blind consumerism.
