Hygge Box was created to provide busy individuals, like yourself, with a regular dose of cozy time, giving you a break from your active lifestyle with a box of treats that inspire and evoke hyggelig (nice) moments. Our mission is to help you practice and extend this mindset. We live in a world which seems to get busier by the second but we need to take a minute to breathe. We need to take a break, relax and enjoy the small things in life.
We took a trip to Sweden. There was little daylight which meant we spent a lot of time in the cabin with warm beverages, lit candles, home-cooked meals, fireplaces and fine company. After that trip, we realized that we didn’t need a lot to feel fulfilled. The candles, blankets, cookies and books – they were just mediums setting the stage for comfort, safety and togetherness - the true producers of happiness.
When we arrived back to NYC, we felt a stronger need than ever to escape from the constant feeling of being plugged in – the demands that comes with living a busy and hyper-connected life. Maybe it was our experience in Sweden but we could see that our bodies were taking a toll and we finally came to the realization that self-care is necessary and we need to start now.
We found ourselves reading articles about meditation, being in the present moment, making the most of simple pleasures and other tips for leading a happier & healthier life. We started a gratitude journal which we wrote in every night. With our friends, we set up more get-togethers with good meals and meaningful connections & conversations (not about work, politics or any other possible controversial issues). All these little things we incorporated into our daily lives, these are the elements of hygge. From that point on, we adopted the hygge lifestyle and became devoted to practicing it everyday.
In 2017, we started Hygge Box™ to provide busy individuals with a regular dose of cozy time, giving them a break from their active lives with a box of treats that inspire and evoke hyggelig (nice) moments. Our mission at Hygge Box™ is to help you practice and extend this mindset. We live in a world which seems to get busier by the second but we need to take a minute to breathe. We need to take a break, relax and enjoy the small things in life.
Hygge is about preserving happiness everyday. It is slowing down, being humble, expressing gratitude, feeling safe and connecting with loved ones. Hygge Box is for anyone who wants to bring hygge into their home and life.
