At the last Ideas Factory Cov
we heard how people find the colder months hard as the nights are drawing in and people don’t get out as much. The lack of sunshine can affect people’s wellbeing. We wanted to do something about this and help people change their mindset about winter so we spent time researching and have found a simple way the Danes use to create a sense of wellbeing during their darker months.
So with that in mind, we planned a special evening to help people think creatively about how they can winterproof themselves and their homes for a more Feel Good
season. We took inspiration from the Danes and their amazing tradition of Hygge, pronounced Hoogah. We also added some simple science of happiness activities that could be easily recreated. We turned Theatre Absolute into a cosy front room, by adding cushions, blankets and lots of candles, due to health and safety we had to be creative on this one!
