The Hygge: The Pursuit of Happiness Diploma Course teaches you how to incorporate hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) into your life to achieve daily pleasure, relaxation and comfort and create daily rituals for sustainable mindfulness and the eradication of negative thoughts.

The Hygge: The Pursuit of Happiness Diploma Course begins by discussing what hygge is – exploring the origin of the word and examining other, similar, Nordic concepts. You’ll explore the reasons behind hygge’s popularity and the differences between hygge and minimalism.

After laying this foundation of knowledge, you will be introduced to the principles of hygge. You’ll learn how to create true hygge in the ways you design and decorate your home, how you dress, your work environment and attitude in your job, your approach to relationships and parenting, and even how you experience the creation and consumption of meals.

The Hygge: The Pursuit of Happiness Diploma Course looks at how to follow the practice of hygge as the seasons change – how to have a hygge summer holiday, why spring cleaning is a very hygge pastime, why autumn is a good season to prepare for the coming, colder months, and how to get cosy in winter. You’ll also explore the holiday that best encapsulates hygge, Christmas. You’ll be taken right through the festive season, as you learn how to create a hygge atmosphere, from the decorations to use around your home to what food and drink you could serve.

The course concludes by looking at why hobbies are important to creating a hygge state of mind, and specifically why craft-making has a special place in the heart of all hygge practitioners.

By the end of this course you will:

  • Have a comprehensive overview of what hygge is and how to apply it to your life
  • Understand the various principles behind hygge
  • Be knowledgeable about the origins of hygge and why it is such a part of the Danish DNA
  • Be familiar with ways to incorporate hygge into your home through design and decor
  • Know the importance of creating hygge in your relationships and understand how to do this
  • Understand the significance of food and drink to a hygge lifestyle
  • Appreciate how hygge parenting can create a better home life for all the family
  • Be able to practise hygge throughout the year, regardless of the season
  • Understand that hygge is for life, and not just a fashion or home styling phenomenon

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
