For the better part of two years, the entire world (or at least everyone in the Well+Good office) has been obsessed with the Danish concept of hygge. It not only sanctions being a comfy, cozy seasonal recluse, but it also gives a name to a feeling—namely the instant high you can achieve by canceling plans, staying home cocooned in cashmere, or reading a book (or, let’s be real—bingeing on Netflix).
