"Hygge was never meant to be translated - it was meant to be felt." - ToveMaren Stakkestad

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah or hoo-ga), for those who don't know, is the latest international lifestyle trend to (literally) embrace us all.

A Danish word that doesn't actually have a direct English translation, hygge loosely means a feeling or mood of cosiness, intimacy, contentedness, kinship, security and/or simplicity.

Created out of a necessity to remain happy and positive during the long Scandinavian winters, hygge is now being practiced worldwide.

And there is good reason too. Denmark is regularly voted one of the happiest countries in the world, and their population experience high levels of health and wellbeing. And it seems hygge has a lot to do with this. Author Helen Russell says, "hygge seems to me to be about being kind to yourself - indulging, having a nice time, not punishing or denying yourself anything."

What's not to love?
