Why don't we have arbejdsglaede?



Some Scandinavian countries have a word "arbejdsglaede" to describe happiness at work.

It's used to describe a sense of contentment and fulfilment from your chosen vocation.

This word doesn't exist in English. We have a million ways to describe being drunk and even more ways to describe the weather. But this state of mental wellness at work isn't common enough to warrant a distinct word.
