Euro 2020 mascot Skillzy poses with a Lego model of the Krestovsky stadium in St. Petersburg
England are favorites to beat Denmark at Wembley this week, but we have a lot to learn from the innovative Danes, including the five things listed below:
1 Sweet pastry paradise
You’ve probably eaten Danish pastry at some point in your life, but do you know your “rabarberhorn” from your “hindbaersnitter”?
You may have to walk through the door at 6am to get them while they’re hot, but next time you find yourself in Copenhagen, be sure to sample a range of sweet flaky pastries that can be decorated. or filled with nuts, fruits, seeds and marmalades.
2 No quilt battles in Denmark
In the height of winter, sharing a double duvet can turn into a grueling battle that lasts until late into the night, but the Danes have a solution: single duvets for each person in a double bed.
This is not an idea limited only to Denmark and is common to all of Scandinavia as well as Germany and Austria and shows that we are clearly behind when it comes to optimizing sleep.
3 More efficient workers
Denmark is considered the second most productive worker in Europe and this is not the result of an increase in the number of working hours.
In fact, Danish offices usually close around 4 p.m., which gives employees more opportunities for leisure and time with family, and staying at work longer is not encouraged.
4 Better attitude towards life
A trip on the London Underground will give you an idea of the attitude of some Brits towards everyday working life whereas in Denmark they really have a word for appreciating the simple things.
‘Hygge’ – pronounced ‘hoo-gah’ – is about indulging in the good things around us, from eating something tasty to taking a hot shower.
5 Creators of the greatest toy
Widely regarded as the greatest toy ever invented, Lego – derived from the Danish expression “leg godt” which means “to play well” – comes from Billund in Denmark.
Starting with interlocking colorful plastic bricks, Lego can now be used to build models of just about anything and its popularity shows no signs of fading.
