If you thought Mysa is just the name of this blog, you are far away from the magic behind the concept. Hence give me the honor to introduce you to the phenomenal concept that is coming from Sweden, the same country in which FOREO was born.
What is mysa?
The Swedish term mysa is a verb that translates to “to cozy up” or “to snuggle”. It is a popular term in Sweden that refers to the feeling of comfort and contentment that comes from relaxing and enjoying the cozy, warm and comfortable atmosphere.
Mysa is about creating a warm and inviting environment that promotes relaxation, comfort, well-being, self-care, fosters connections and community, celebrates the beauty of simplicity, and promotes mindfulness and gratitude.
Mysa vs. hygge
The Swedish concert of mysa and the Danish concept of hygge share similarities as they both emphasize creating cozy and comfortable environments and promoting a sense of well-being. However, there are some subtle differences between the two concepts.
Mysa tends to focus more on the feeling of contentment and relaxation. It encompasses activities such as snuggling under a blanket, enjoying a hot cup of tea, or spending quality time with loved ones. Mysa is often associated with the idea of “cozying up“ and finding joy in simple pleasures.
Hygge, on the other hand, has a broader scope and can encompass various aspects of life, such as creating an inviting atmosphere, enjoying good company, and finding comfort in everyday rituals. Hygge emphasizes a feeling of warmth, togetherness, and embracing the present moment.
The differences between mysa and hygge can also be attributed to cultural nuances. Swedish culture tends to have a more informal and egalitarian approach, while Danish culture often emphasizes a sense of balance and harmony, with an emphasis on design and aesthetics.
Why do you need Mysa in your life?
In a world bustling with endless tasks, responsibilities, and demands, finding moments of serenity and self-care can feel like an elusive dream. However, this shouldn’t be just a dream, it needs to be incorporated into our reality in order to relax, come back to ourselves and regenerate from everything we experience during the day. That is an absolute necessity for us to be able to handle all the challenges, but also because we deserve it and our life needs to revolve around ourselves, our needs and aspirations. It is not just about serving others.

Talking about mysa in the context of FOREO, that is so very connected.
