The original word in Norwegian means well-being. However, hygge might originate from the word hug. Hug comes from the word hugge, which means "to embrace." The word hugge is of unknown origin but might originate from the Old Norwegian word hygga, which means "to comfort," which comes from the word hugr, meaning "mood." In turn, that word comes from the Germanic word hugjan, which relates to the Old English word hycgan, meaning "to think, consider."

The Hygge Difference
Investing is stressful and confusing. Negative stress, in most cases, leads to unhappiness and poor investment decisions. Hygge is a way of life, a happier life - a sense of comfort, togetherness and well-being. Hygge Advisors was created to help investors gain those very same senses while investing, reducing both stress and poor investment decisions. If we live our lives with Hygge, we will be happier. If we invest our portfolios with Hygge, our investments will be happier.
