Whats Hygge got to do with tigers??

So Hygge roughly translates to cosiness and comes from a Norwegian word for wellbeing, but I think its about so much more than this it’s about connectedness, togetherness, warmness, love kindness and the list goes on. In fact saying it’s just cosiness takes away all the other wonderful things it is in my mind anyway. So, what is it and why is it important? I explored summer hygge and vlogged about it in Copenhagen this summer but its more widely associated with the Winter and in particular the colder harsher winters in Denmark and how you can experience more joy with this season. I think there is something to go at here as winter can be dark and cold and a shock to the system, and I think we can learn from the hygge Danes about our happiness and have some beneficial effects or maybe just enjoy ourselves along the way
