Let´s be a bit more Hygge


It seems like most bookstores have been filled with books trying to explain the concept of Hygge.

Wanting to know what the fuss was about I bought The Little Book of Hygge, The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking.

The little book of Hygge Spring Lilies

Throughout the whole book the author tries to explain the meaning of Hygge as there is no direct translation in to any other language.

What I took from the book is that Hygge is something most people strive to achieve and its to find happiness in the little things we do everyday. Hygge can be curling up in your favourites spot reading a book with a cosy blanket after a long day at work. Hygge can be an afternoon spent with a friend watching a film. Hygge can be anything that makes you feel cosy, relaxed and safe.

It was an interesting read but what I most liked about the book is a point that the author made about the way introverts and extroverts socialise.

It’s a common misconception that introverts aren’t sociable. Humans are sociable beings by nature but the way each person socialises isn’t always the same.
The book talks about how introverts choose to socialise and spend their time with loved ones and family in a cosy/familiar environment. Introverts can sometimes feel drained by too many external stimuli, and we should learn to accept that that is alright.

I do consider myself an introvert and due to the way I choose to spent my time I know people have criticised me and called antisocial in the past. But it isn’t true, I don’t spend my days alone. I do enjoy having time to myself but I know I wouldn’t be able to go more than a day without seeing or speaking to someone. I might not have a large group of friends but I do know that I can count on and be myself with the few that I have, and for me that is much more important.

So let’s try to stop labelling people and just concentrate in making the most out of the time we have, let´s try to find the happiness in the little things we do each day, let´s try to be a bit more Hygge

  2. Omg me and you are the same! Haha. I've also been called antisocial in the past for not having big groups of friends or not going out all the time, but I love having me time! Of course I couldn't go without having some sort of human interaction, but it feels amazing to have some time to myself. And even though I only have a couple of really close friends, I know I can count on them for everything .. I need to get my hands on this book and see what all the fuss is about :D

  3. I'm probably the only one who never heard about the term "Hygge". Thank you for explaining me. I have been called with these names too "antisocia" "weird" "loner" and sometimes it hurts from people, but I try to not care, because I love spending time with myself like I do with my few friends.

    1. It´s very sad to think that people try to put you down just because you are different to them. We are supposed to ignore it all and don't let it affect us. We should all try to be a bit more understanding and just accept people for who they are.
      Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  5. I am an introvert and have has people try to label me and even my family. Sometimes we try to fit complex notions into a box because we assume that it will make it easier to process, but in doing that we do a disservice regarding the complexities of human nature. This books seem like an interesting need.

    1. People should just to do the things that make them happy and not judge the rest for being different.

  6. I really love the definition of Hygge, so it's lovely to read an in-depth explanation of everything it stands for. Finding balance is so important and the concept certainly seems to keep that in mind :)

  7. Wow, I really love the design of the book. And I love reading motivational/ inspirational books, and this seems like a good candidate. I will surely look for this the next time I visit the bookstore.

    I also consider myself as an introvert, and I have been called anti-social before too.
    I think it is interesting how the book explained introverts and extroverts.

  9. My boyfriend bought me this book for Christmas and I absolutely loved it and thought the concept of Hygge is great. I can get frustrated with having to go to work and sometimes not spending my days how I want to with family and friends doing nice things but Hygge is a great way to take enjoyment out of the little things in everyday life and doing little things to make your day more enjoyable :) x

  10. I love this post and I think we could all do with a bit more Hygge in our lives. I'd say I'm the perfect balance of introvert and extrovert, and after a day socialising I love nothing better than zoning out in pj's watching TV with my boyfriend and rabbits. Hope you're having a relaxing weekend 😊

  11. I think I will be spending next weekend looking for this book. It sounds interesting. I also want to discover what Hygge means and what is its closest translation to Filipino.

  13. I love this concept! When I read the word 'hygge' I thought I knew I've heard that term before somewhere, and I'm glad you explained it here. I'm an introvert as well although to some it may not seem the case. But I definitely feel that I get more and more drained when I talk to people. It's just that my work requires me to be a bit more 'extroverted', although inside I'm actually getting exhausted lol! :)
