Most Danes report experiencing the most hygge at home, according to Meik Wiking, author of The Little Book of Hygge. Wiking says that every house needs a “hyggekrog,” essentially a cozy nook where you can snuggle in with a good book and a favourite hot drink. He has his hyggekrog by the kitchen window. “It is the place in the room where you love to snuggle up in a blanket with a book and a cup of tea. Your hyggekrog does not need to be by the window, however, even though that is really hyggeligt” says Wiking.
Essentially, a cozy hygge nook is a place to relax or watch the world go by… to create this, cozy up a space with blankets, soft cushions, plants, dim lighting, candles and all your favourite books. You also don’t need to go overboard with this idea and you don’t need to dedicate an entire room for this, just the corner of a room will do. The most important thing is that you create a space that suits your relaxation style. In my house, I have a comfy chair, a foot stool/ottoman, a dimly lit lamp, a big window and a throw blanket. It’s become a coveted spot in our home.
As well, your hyggekrog doesn’t need to be inside. If it’s the weather is good, you can create a space in your yard, your garden, on a deck ... anywhere that provides you a feeling of security and comfort.
“By the way there is no obligation to read in your hyggekrog. You may want to knit, or journal, or listen to music, do a crossword puzzle or Sudoku, or just relax and enjoy some quiet moments. It is understood that while you are relaxing and recharging, your cell phone might want to find a hyggekrog of its own to recharge” says Mary Hirsch, of Ingebretsen's Nordic Marketplaces.

- Consistency has been at the forefront of my mind over the last few weeks. Consistency in your daily actions. It doesn't really matter how small an action is, if it's taken every day, it will yield results, predominantly because any action or inaction, regularly performed, will create habit. Do something enough (or don't do something) and you will get used to that mode of behaviour; it will become normal. And whatever habit you form, will dictate your results and your success in that area. This applies to everything - every single damn area of your life. It's the daily action that counts. Not the grand gesture. Not the big speech. Not the endless projection into the future. It's what you do today, what you keep doing every day, it's the expression of intent in your everyday life that gets you to your outcome.
Someone working in a coffee shop asked me why I wanted to know the calorie count of a particular product. 'Because I need to know what I'm eating', I said. 'But you're thin', she replied 🙄 Cheers, but that's exactly why 😂
