FIKA: Take a break like a Swede!
Fika [fee-ka] is a Swedish word for coffee break with something small to eat. But in same time FIKA is more than a coffee break.
It’s a state of mind, a Scandinavian response to an overly busy rhythm of life.
Fika is a lifestyle that fits in perfectly with the global megatrend: the need to slow down.
Don’t hurry, be happy
Nowadays it feels that there is no time for a decent coffee break. Having a coffee does not really mean having a break anymore, it means “take away and keep going”. It’s even difficult to set our mind into a break mode. It requires a simple routine. And that’s why we really need to slow down and have a Swedish tradition, FIKA– a true break to enjoy some time alone or with friends or family and share a cup of coffee or tea and delicious soft dough bun. And just relax.
Few things you have to hear about Scandinavian happiness
