Mindfulness Practice

Delight Catching

We are surrounded by little miracles, yet sometimes we are unable to notice because we are lost in our own worry worlds.  We are lost in what someone has said, what we have not said or said, what is unfair, what is not right, what is not done, and so on.  We are lost in ‘me-ing’.  Me-ing is a ticket to misery.  Me-ing causes delight-blindness.


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.
