Whether you鈥檙e working on bouncing back from generosity burnout, aiming for better work-life balance, or trying to invite a little more luck into your life this year, hygge (pronounced 鈥渉oo-gah鈥) is the concept you need to know about. The Danish trend is all about enjoying life鈥檚 most *simple* pleasures, like spending time with friends, treating yourself to delicious dishes, and curling up in a cozy nook. Ahh, bliss! It鈥檚 super easy to embrace聽hygge聽at home (hello, IKEA hacks!) and work. Scroll on for six things you can do to totally transform your daily grind.

1. Personalize your space.聽Heading to your desk shouldn鈥檛 be something you dread! Make the most of your space by filling it with things that light you up inside, like a framed photo or two of people you love, an inspirational candle with your fave quote, and a couple of books.

2. Go green, girl.聽Love the feel-good vibes that come with being outside? Bring a bit of the greenery inside, and deck out your desk with a vase of fresh flowers 鈥 we love the simple, inexpensive bouquets at Trader Joe鈥檚 鈥 a small fern, or a couple of succulents. You鈥檒l love the instant mood boost.

3. Fall in love with lunchtime.聽Hygge is all about indulging in a tasty, enjoyable meal. Make a conscious effort to use your lunch break to eat with other people, instead of eating alone at your desk. Take it up a notch by treating yourself to a new restaurant every week or month, and make it a point to invite colleagues you might not know super well. Forging friendships is always more fun over good food.

4. Keep it cozy.聽You might not be able to bring your mermaid blanket to work, but you can create a cozier space by keeping extra layers nearby. Bring your favorite sweater, comfy cape, or a chunky cardigan to work, plus an extra pair of socks or a scarf. This will make keeping warm on cold days (or when the AC is on full blast in the summer) a total cinch.

5. Take a real break.聽Since hygge is all about enjoying simple pleasures, it鈥檚 the perfect excuse to take mid-morning and afternoon breaks. Use yours to take a walk around the block, do some stretches, chat with coworkers, flip a few pages, or even make a fresh cup of tea.

Reach for a specific blend to make the most of your hygge moment of bliss: If you鈥檙e having a tough morning, a refreshing cup of green tea with mint can聽help you hit the reset button. A sip of energizing聽gunpowder green tea is perfect before sitting down for some goal setting or career planning. Ready to unwind?聽Black tea with vanilla can help you relax at the end of a long day.

6. Get the work gear you LOVE.聽Feel bad about pulling the trigger on the pricey carryall you鈥檝e been eyeing 鈥 even though you鈥檝e been nailing it at the office? Still carrying your laptop or uniform to work in the backpack you鈥檝e had since undergrad? It might be time to treat yourself and upgrade your gear, bringing you a little聽bit of extra joy when you get ready to go to work every day.
