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)

The blogger Anna Lea West,  refers to hygge as 'cosiness of the soul'. Morley College, in central London  (UK) teaches students how to achieve hygge. There are students from 149 countries enrolled on my courses - and yet I am not trying to 'teach' them about hygge - I want everyone to FEEL it.

As the translator ToveMaren Stakkestad has written  "Hygge is meant to be felt!."
Hygge comes from a Norwegian word meaning "wellbeing"  This course exists for one simple reason: to encourage comfort, to spread happiness and thus improve wellbeing.

As part of the course there is
  • Homework to encourage you to put ideas into practice
  • Resources to enable you to apply ideas
I also encourage you to ask (and answer) questions, to make comments, to give feedback.
Participation really is the key.
