7 Ways to DIY Hygge Into Your Lifestyle

Hygge, pronounced "HOO-gah" is the Scandinavian way of life that celebrates coziness and contentment above all else. As Americans, we tend to "not have time" to celebrate the little things that make every day special. But perhaps, we should take a lesson from the World's Happiest Country, Denmark and embrace this lifestyle that celebrates warmth, family, friends, and all things cozy.
