A well-being trend that is coming out of Denmark/Norway is not a new business or product but a concept.  It is  hygge.

Generally translation of hygge:  the feeling of cozy contentment.

And of course this invokes imagery of hot chocolate/coffee and baking and wool socks and warm relaxation by the fireplace or sauna, etc.

And of course environment and such things are a big help in relaxing but ultimately hygge and such ideas are about finding that place within where we are not perturbed by anything.

That place is a place of beingness and has nothing to do per se with what is external.   The world could be falling apart and coming to an end and that does not mean we have to remove ourself from our beingness.

Exploring your vulnerability is an exploration of your beingness.

And how do you wish to live in the world?
