The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well

The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live WellGoodreads Synopsis:    Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world. That's down to one thing: hygge.

'Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. My personal favourite is cocoa by candlelight...'

You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right.

Who better than Meik Wiking to be your guide to all things hygge? Meik is CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and has spent years studying the magic of Danish life. In this beautiful, inspiring book he will help you be more hygge: from picking the right lighting and planning a dinner party through to creating an emergency hygge kit and even how to dress.

Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. He is committed to finding out what makes people happy and has concluded that hygge is the magic ingredient that makes Danes the happiest nation in the world.

My Thoughts:

-    This book is full of so many comfy, safe, and wonderfully happy things. I love hygge. I want to hygge all the time.

-    I really enjoyed learning about Denmark. I want to visit there now. I want to visit and learn to hygge from the masters.

-    I liked how the book addressed socializing for introverts. Hygge is the perfect way for introverts to interact with other people without feeling uncomfortable or getting worn out. It was a great section of the book, and it spoke to me.

-    This whole book spoke to me. Hygge appeals to every part of me.
