HYGGE, A PROMISE OF HAPPINESS

Published on 14 November 2017
Welcome to Denmark, TRUE NORTH’s home country, considered to be the country with the happiest people on Earth.
Even if …, night is falling early, cold is there nine months a year and taxes are quite high …
Therefore, the secret of this happiness must be sought in the Danish art of living, also called Hygge, which enhances well-being, simplicity and conviviality and gives birth to a feeling of immediate satisfaction.

HYGGE PRINCIPLES

At the beginning, it was about meeting up with family or friends, keeping out from harsh external aggressions; today Hygge refers to enjoying nice simple moments of everyday life, together with close friends and family.

Making your place as cosy as possible: subduing lights, enjoying candles light, creating a peaceful and comfortable haven, where time has no hold
Taking breaks, curling up in a cosy plaid, enjoying a cup of tea with a delicious piece of cake.

Developing kindliness, with oneself and towards the others.
Refocusing on oneself, on places and people who make us feel good, so as to find your own balance.

Taking care of oneself to get the strength to better face problems.
According to Meik Wiking, director of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, it is “the feeling that we are safe, sheltered from the world, and that we can drop one’s guard “.

BRING A DOSE OF HYGGE INTO YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE

The art of cocooning can very well be transposed into your beauty routine: special moments to take care of yourself.

Adopt a holistic approach of this moment, i.e., take care of your skin, listen to your body and identify your real needs.

Take a warm bath, light a few candles and apply TRUE NORTH DE-STRESSED MASK. This feeling of immediate well-being will make you feel happy, hence radiant!
