Friday Phrase: Friluftsliv

Is friluftsliv the new hygge?

The word caught my attention in this article from the Seattle Times - https://www.seattletimes.com/life/outdoors/we-belong-out-there-how-the-nordic-concept-of-friluftsliv-outdoor-life-could-help-the-pacific-northwest-get-through-this-covid-winter

It's a Norwegian concept of "outdoor life" or "open-air living", but Canadians like me might translate it as not letting the weather control your life. Embracing the outdoors through winter has many positive mental and physical benefits--less activity is bad, after all.
