When we do hygge we feel that all is well. We feel safe and calm. There is a sense of comfort, kindness, harmony and belonging. Hygge is about a quality of togetherness or a quality of time. It is life-quality. This means we are activating the ‘Connected/Contented’ network. It is part ‘reward’ for our work but it is also a reprieve from work and a way to switch off from being productive, from doing, from achieving. Hygge is a different way of being.
