I’ve always believed we should not only do what we can to have a healthy body, but we should also work to have a healthy mind and spirit. I recently reviewed The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking so I was really excited Friday when I stumbled on this HYGEE challenge @ Albie Knows. You can join or just follow along using #25DAYSOFHYGGE on Instagram & Twitter. You can also check out her YouTube channel.
