A break for a cuppa

8/52 for the group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: H is for Hygge

The warm and cozy lifestyle that hygge promotes has been a key part of Danish culture since the early 1800s when the word first appeared in the written language (it's derived from a Norwegian word for "well-being").

You don't need anything special to make your life more hyggelig (hygge-like), it's more of an attitude of mind.

Just take a little time out, put down the phone and chill out with a hot drink, a comforting snack and a book.

The craze for hygge may have now passed to be replaced by konmari minimalism, but you don't need anything special to make things hyggelig.
