It’s time to pretend that we’re getting on a flight and flying across the ocean to Denmark (hi Kristen!) as we dive into the science behind coziness, comfort and the Danish idea of Hygge. 

This year, social distancing and lockdowns are making winter a little… isolating. Luckily, we’ve got some serious science to back us up about how to thrive this winter. 

A good book, minimizing screens and all the throw blankets that Chapters Indigo has in stock aren’t exactly the base of Hygge, but they can help. 

This episode, though, is dedicated to supporting our serotonin and oxytocin levels. And creating connection without necessarily needing to be staring at a screen. 

So many options. So much science.

Also, I rambled a little bit. Thanks for indulging 😉


Todays episode is sponsored by the Nova Scotia Government. Today I’m asking you, as part of our team of 971,000, to work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Online self-assessments are available HERE (and are SO easy to fill out and book a time for testing!) and anyone living in NS can now asymptomatically test to help slow the spread in our province.

Appointments are required for the testing and can be booked until Dec. 13 by using the online assessment tooland choosing the asymptomatic option.
