We’ve all heard of Hygge – the ‘Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of cosiness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment’. We’ve read the books, eyed up the expensive candles and admired the Pins and Instagram pics. It seems that the concept has become more about commercial gain than simplicity and togetherness.
So, as part of our ‘home and wellbeing’ theme, we’re sharing an animation from COPE Scotland, exploring ‘Coorie’ – reclaiming the true meaning of Hygge but with a Scottish twist! Their inspiring short film shows how we can make our homes feel cosy and welcoming, even when things are tough mentally, physically or financially. COPE also encourage us to embrace staycations, making the most of our natural surroundings here at home in Scotland. This is definitely worth a watch!
