It's part of the Swedish culture. It means “Not too little. Not too much. Just right.”
The concept encourages an overarching balance across our lives: everything in moderation.
Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden are ranked among the top happiest places in the world.
Their population enjoys a healthy work-life balance, high standards of living with less pressure, less stress, and more time for everything they enjoy and love doing.
In both Danish and Norwegian, 'hygge' means “to give courage, comfort, joy”.
In Denmark, 'hygge' is a central part of the culture. It’s about giving your responsible, stressed-out self a break to live in the moment and enjoy your immediate environment.
Etymologically, it comes from a Finnish root word that implies “inner” or “inside.” In Finnish culture, it’s about adopting the attitude of persistence and determination.
It’s often described as stoic determination, the tenacity of purpose, grit, and resilience.
“No people can be truly happy if they do not feel that they are choosing the course of their own life.”
This is the Danish word for “happiness.”
The concept teaches that happiness isn’t a destination, it’s a habit. It’s what we do to make everything else in life awesome.
“Happiness consists more in small conveniences or pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom.”

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
