Hygge

Thankful. Day # 6

Earlier this year I stumbled across the Danish concept of Hygge. It is more of a concept than a word, making it hard to define. Generally, it is described as a feeling of coziness. For me, it is a deep sense of peace and comfort. Tonight that meant a hot bubble bath, a good book, and candlelight. Other times it is dinner with friends or a glass of wine in front of the fire. I have always noted when I feel hygge, long before I had a word to describe it. After an especially crazy day I am grateful to have the opportunity to find an hour to practice hygge. Goodness for my mind, body, and spirit.
