What is Scandinavian Wellness?
Scandinavians are some of the happiest people on earth because of their ancient, traditional health habits. They know that happiness isn't a location, but rather a state of mind.
When we slow down and nurture ourselves, we create a stronger, healthier, deeper connection with ourselves, others, and our planet. The ancient Scandinavian traditions, supported by modern scientific research, show us that health & happiness is all around if we just learn where to look.
Embrace balance. Prioritize experiences. Take joy in small moments. Breathe.

Niksen (neek-sa)


The Dutch art of purposefully doing nothing or a "short period of mindless relaxation". Allow your mind to wander aimlessly and simply "Be".  
Don't overthink!
