Your HVAC system is very important for your wellbeing. HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, all of which are important to keep your body at a comfortable temperature. When your body gets overheated, you feel uncomfortable and you want to start shedding layers. When you’re cold, it’s equally impossible to concentrate on anything until you’ve started getting warm again. Not only do heating, ventilation and air-conditioning help you to concentrate on what you’re doing, they also create a sense of comfort and ease which the Danes refer to as hygge.
Denmark, Hygge and Happiness
Did you know that Denmark is one of the happiest countries in the world? It routinely shows up in the top few countries of the World Happiness Report which is released by the United Nations every year.
Why exactly are Danes so happy? It’s not because of their climate, given that it’s very cold for most of the year. However, Danes have figured out a system that keeps them happy and it’s expressed in hygge which refers to a sense of cozy happiness.
Hygge in Winter and Summer
Just imagine yourself sitting snugly at home on a cold night. Your HVAC system is working perfectly and you feel like you’re at just the right temperature to relax and let go. The lighting is dim. You’re surrounded by friends and family. Maybe you have a cozy chenille throw wrapped around you while you’re drinking a cup of coffee.
Or if it’s a summer day, then you have your air conditioning on, light is pouring in through the windows and you can see the leaves swaying on the trees outside. You’re drinking something cool and reading an engrossing book.
How HVAC Can Help You Create Hygge
If either or both of the above scenarios appeals to you, then you’ve understood what hygge is and you’re ready to start creating some hygge in your life.
