This article was written by Chill Angel friend and wanderwriting.com blogger, Alex Gulsby. It's all about the Danish principle of Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), or the “art of creating intimacy,” which essentially equates feelings of coziness with lifelong happiness.

How to Create Hygge in your home
A Hyggekrog, according to Meik Wiking’s Little Book of Hygge is “the nook of your home where one can sit and have a hyggelig time.” The Danes have known about and cultivated hygge for centuries, proving its success by earning title as the “World’s Happiest Country” time and time again.
This blog article was written by Alex Gulsby, freelance writer and PR manager for Chill Angel. She is an avid backpacker and lives in Durango, Colorado. So as part of her team initiation, I asked her to put our sleepwear to the test and report back.

Here's my favourite part from the artcile:

The BBC published an article last year about Einstein and his quirky daily routines. The content relating to his sleep regime caught my eye. You can read the full article here.
It covers interesting topics such as spindle events and fluid intellect, and links to a study relating to sleep and enhancing brain activity - here are the highlights:
10 HOURS OF SLEEP AND ONE-SECOND NAPS
It’s common knowledge that sleep is good for your brain – and Einstein took this advice more seriously than most. He reportedly slept for at least 10 hours per day – nearly one and a half times as much as the average American today (6.8 hours). But can you really slumber your way to a sharper mind?
The business plan for Chill Angel was, like the rest of my fledging business, a real passion project for me. When I heard about Steamboat Springs' very own "Shark Tank" I couldn't resist the opportunity to put my ideas under the lens of scrutiny.
What a thrill it was then to find out that my entry had been nominated as the winner. You can read all about the competition and what it means to Chill Angel in this neat article from Steamboat Today.
