As I sit here, snugly nestled on the couch under a duvet, with a purring cat by my side, Christmas lights twinkling around the room, candles flickering, and a hot cup of tea in one hand… I’m ready to lead the revolution of comfort and coziness.

Life in this modern day can be harsh. We’re constantly being bombarded with noise, with advertising, with calls-to-action, with demands on our time and energy. It’s hard to get away from it, when much of it comes from these little devices we carry with us everywhere.

I’ll advocate that we all take a hint from the Danes, and get hygge with it. Hygge, if you haven’t already heard, is the Danish mindset of enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Cozy contentment.

Is it groundbreaking and revolutionary? Maybe not – but it’s certainly different from the usual rat race, and I think it’s good if we all take some time to unplug from the craziness and spend more time with our loved ones, snuggling with our pets, and enjoying the simple pleasures in life.
