Try Coorie, the Scottish Way to Happiness

You probably already know what hygge is a Danish wellness and cozy style of living, and coorie is the Scottish version of that. Coorie is essentially a lifestyle concept that focuses on being cozy and present in the moment.

The easiest way to imagine it is to think of a crisp autumn day when you grab a blanket and curl up on the porch chair with a good book. It’s the feeling of ultimate bliss and gratefulness for all the good things in life.

Gabriella Bennett, the author of The Art of Coorie, describes it as “a feeling of cool, contemporary Caledonia.” Coorie is when you try to “lead a quieter existence where the endless pursuit of work is balanced by small pleasures,” as Bennett told The Times.

Don’t we all need this right now? It’s clear that there are more and more wellness trends that are trying to remind us of the importance of having a balanced life and finding time for the little things in life. Those little things often seem too small and insignificant but they actually end up being the most important when we look back.

The time spent in nature, with family and friends, the time you spend giving yourself the opportunity to rest and be present, it all accounts for a happy and fulfilled life.
