Uni life is stressful, no one will deny that. Maybe you don’t feel like you have the time to relax. Maybe you don’t know how to relax. Maybe you just need a reason to take a break. Luckily, the Norwegians and Danish have relaxing all figured out. They even have a word for it: hygge, meaning “coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.”
This cosy, low-pressure hygge evening will focus on relieving anxiety by snuggling up under blankets and eating sweet treats and pizza, all while watching nature documentaries and even playing some games. Pillows, blankets, food etc. are all provided by the UCL Knitting Society, although you will have to bring your own cosy socks and comfy hoodie. The goal of this welfare event is to provide some much-needed distraction from uni life by getting away from the lab or the library and being as comfy as possible. Let’s bring some of that scandinavian wisdom to rainy London. 
The event is open to everyone at UCL, whether you’re a postgrad struggling with PhD loneliness or a first-year starting to get anxious about exams.
No knitting society membership is required. Just come hang out, bring your comfiest clothes (pyjamas encouraged!) and prepare for an evening of taking your mind off of work while sharing donuts. The location for this event is room 2.18 in the Chadwick Building.
