Hygge: How to bring out your inner hobbit

As you likely know, I’m basically a hobbit. I’m short, have the occasional adventure, and at heart love a simple life, well-lived, in a warm, vibrant home that’s full of cooking, creativity, and closeness with those I love.

That’s why the Danish concept of hygge (that’s “hue-guh”) is so essential to me and my family. We are all about everyday contentment and coziness in our home, in our lives, and with each other.

This year I’ve been learning more about hygge and how else to work the concept into our lives. I recently finished Louisa Thomsen Brits’s The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Contentment, Comfort, and Connection, and found it a good approach for understanding the facets of hygge and feeling inspired to find ways to have hygge in everyday life.

If you are looking to slow down and appreciate your moments and those you care for most, it’s a wonderful read. Best enjoyed, of course, under a blanket in your fave reading spot, with your choice of beverage nearby.
