The key to happiness may be to live the ‘Hygge’ lifestyle. The word ‘Hygge‘originates from a Norweign word meaning ‘well-being‘. For almost five hundred years, Denmark and Norway were one kingdom, until Denmark lost Norway in 1814.
‘Hygge‘ appeared in written Danish for the first time in the early 1800’s, and the link between hygge and well being or happiness maybe no coincidence.
Danes are the happiest people in Europe according to the European Social Survey and found in ‘The Little Book of Hygge, The Danish Way to Live Well‘, by Meik Wiking.
