We've all heard of 'comfort food', but what about 'comfort music'?
The right piece of music can bring solace, soothe emotions, and support us to work through hard times.
Hygge (pronounced "hoo-ga") is a Danish word for a mood of cosiness and comfort with feelings of wellness and contentment through enjoying the simple things in life.
With the help of our listeners, we've put together this playlist of comfort music to add to some hygge to your life.
