Hygge as an everyday principle of happiness is also becoming increasingly popular with non-Danish people. We have 4 tips for you that will make an evening among friends especially hygenic. It is best to try it out right away.
Candles: The right lighting is essential to create a relaxing atmosphere of well-being. Nothing is better suited for this than candlelight. It is not without reason that per capita consumption in Denmark is 4.3 kg per year, while the Germans only reach 2.6 kg.
Delicious food: At a Hygge evening, everyone should really be able to relax and there should be no stress, so you should avoid elaborate menus. Ideal is a delicious soup with crispy bread or a hearty stew that you have already prepared in the morning. Remember, the main thing is to have a good, decelerated time together.
Mobile phone and political exclusion zone:Smartphones and political discussions do not create a hygenic atmosphere, so both are absolutely taboo at a hygenic evening. It’s best to put your mobile phones in a box and turn them off at the beginning. Ideally your conversations should have depth and be inspiring for all participants. Each of you should feel accepted, respected and secure.
Small sins:Hygge is a feeling of happiness. Therefore small sins such as alcohol in moderation, chocolate or a particularly rich piece of cake are explicitly allowed and are an important part of the Hygge culture.
Have a good time, enjoy the time together and share your experiences and moments with your loved ones.
