Did you know that Denmark is the happiest nation in the world? After many consecutive years, it ranks among the top three happiest of 155 countries surveyed. They regularly win the top spot for most livable countries in the world too. So, how do they do it? Denmark just seems to get things right; every time. Quality of life here is high and the search to find much-prized ‘hygge’ (pronounced hoo-ga) isn’t hard in Denmark. This is a uniquely Danish trait that has a profound influence on the locals’ happiness. Hygge is social nirvana in Denmark: a sense of cosiness, contentment and camaraderie gained through the simple things in life. Put simply, what freedom is to Americans. . . hygge is to Danes. Most people will only visit the capital of Copenhagen when they visit Denmark, but the country is incredibly beautiful if you have the desire to explore further.
