Have you heard about Hygge (pronounced Hoo ga)? Once you learn about it, it will become a part of your life as this simple philosophy is so important in this fast paced world. At quiet river, we think about Hygge with every product we make. We want you to switch off and enjoy every scent, whether it be your trusted favourite or something you are trying for the first time.
What is Hygge?
Hygge cannot be summarized in just a word or even a sentence. The best way I can describe it is an outlook on life that focuses on simple pleasures and taking the time to cultivate more of them in your life.
It’s when you give your body, mind and spirit a rest and enjoy the good things in life, like a sunrise or sunset, reading a book in front of crackling fire, taking the time to savour a delicious mug of tea, and spending time with friends and family in a comfortable setting.
Where did Hygge originate?
The word hygge originally came from Norway. It’s translation loosely means well-being. The Danish adopted the word as their own and they embody the hygge lifestyle. Danes are among the happiest people in the world and they attribute their happiness in part to hygge.
What is a Hygge Lifestyle?
Instead of living your life on autopilot, hygge is a way of life that makes sure you live your life in a way that brings deep contentment to your soul.
Sometimes the outer things in life (money, power, achievements) aren’t the things that will make us happy.
A hygge life encourages us to look at what truly brings us joy and it to make sure we include those things in our days.
