In essence, hygge is the implementation of the theory described in positive psychology. One of the most interesting things coming out of happiness research at the moment is that positive emotions drive higher levels of satisfaction than merely the absence of negative emotions. Hygge is about trying to build some positive experiences in your daily routine.
Hygge is a Danish word and is the art of creating comfort and happiness. What this course gives most of all is comfort and ease. Comfort through ideas, poems, areas to explore and the feedback from others. Confidence because the end is so worthwhile – but so is the journey. Ease because just by starting the (self) exploration and adapting you will begin to learn, to gain and to be happy(ier)
