Us Brits, are apparently ‘adopting wellbeing trends’ to boost our mood during winter and lockdown says Emma Robertson from The Mirror. She wrote that ‘a recent poll found 35 per cent of 2000 people were adopting the Scandinavian trend of ‘Hygge’ and 22 per cent will try out ‘C Sagach’.

I think we can all agree on the ‘Hygge’ way of life which I write about on this blog and love surrounding ourselves with items that give us comfort and joy but ‘C Sagach’ is not one I had heard of before.

‘C Sagach’ is nothing to do with Scandinavia but is a Scottish term meaning ‘snug and sheltered’. The Welsh name for this is ‘Cwtch’ which means a cubby hole and a trend for crafting and home spaces which embrace people like a hug. Scotland is a country where ‘C Sagach’ can be achieved in all seasons but it’s winter when it comes into its own. Pronounced ‘coze-sag-och’, with the last syllable similar in pronunciation to ‘loch’, it is thought the term may rival hygge, the Danish way of cosy living.

‘Cwtch’ in the home can mean a number of things. It is about embracing the simple things. It’s about natural and cosy materials. It is about togetherness- about cwtching up to someone. It is about how you feel – huddling somewhere warm on a cold day, and another name to rival hygge.

As the nights are drawing in fast and furiously and with us all in lockdown at the moment I think we could all do with a hug but as this is not allowed I am happy to create a ‘C Sagach’ a ‘Cwtch’ or a ‘Hygge’ in my home as they all sound cosy and could easily create a bubble around me.
