Finding Hygge

How do you find hygge? Everyone answers this question in their own way with their own life experiences in mind. Some people find hygge at home by themselves with a good book and a cup of tea, others find hygge picnicking with a group of friends in the park on a summer evening and I personally find hygge in a cozy candlelit cafe with a glass of wine, good food and friends. We all have different preferences when it comes to the specific elements that make up a completely contented, hygge moment. 

This is exactly the topic that the production team, 12 Stars Media, is exploring in their upcoming film, Finding Hygge. They are on a journey to discover the meaning of hygge through a glimpse into the lives of the happiest people on the planet. Here's a snippet from the film's website -

"Standing accused, though perhaps not literally the “worst year ever,” 2016 sparked a search for something happier in the world, and the Danish concept of hygge (hoo-ga) found its way onto bookshelves, Pinterest boards, and the Oxford Dictionaries shortlist for “Word of the Year” alongside Brexiteer and Alt-right. Consistently ranked among the happiest people on earth, have the Danes possessed the key to happiness all along? And, can we find it for ourselves?"

12 Stars Media has been passionately researching hygge by interviewing people from all over the world and hearing varying perspectives on the topic of hygge. They gave us the opportunity to share our views and why we created Hygge Life. We could not be more excited to be represented in the film along with many other wonderful people from all over the world. With that being said, we would like to share a clip from the upcoming documentary, Finding Hygge, a film very dear to our hearts that we believe will be life changing for many. 

This clip features Garrey Dawson, an Englishman who lives in Denmark with his Danish wife and runs Henne Kirkeby, a two Michilen star hotel and restaurant in Henne, Denmark. Listen to Garrey's perspective on finding hygge in his photographs in this clip.
