A way of life…

Hygge (pronounced Hoo-ga) is a way of life in Denmark, comprised of intimate friendships, mindfulness, and lots of candles. Is it any surprise that a country that focuses so much on engineering lovely moments tends to be happier than others? Remember: When life gives you lemons, make a hyggelig glass of lemonade.

Descrição

Embrace Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) and become happier with this definitive guide to the Danish philosophy of comfort, togetherness, and well-being.

Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is Hygge. Loosely translated, Hygge-pronounced Hoo-ga-is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. "Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience," Wiking explains. "It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe."

Hygge is the sensation you get when you're cuddled up on a sofa, in cozy socks under a soft throw, during a storm. It's that feeling when you're sharing comfort food and easy conversation with loved ones at a candlelit table. It is the warmth of morning light shining just right on a crisp blue-sky day.

The Little Book of Hygge introduces you to this cornerstone of Danish life, and offers advice and ideas on incorporating it into your own life, such as:

  • Get comfy. Take a break.
  • Be here now. Turn off the phones.
  • Turn down the lights. Bring out the candles.
  • Build relationships. Spend time with your tribe.
  • Give yourself a break from the demands of healthy living. Cake is most definitely Hygge.
  • Live life today, like there is no coffee tomorrow.

From picking the right lighting to organizing a Hygge get-together to dressing hygge, Wiking shows you how to experience more joy and contentment the Danish way.

    The first half of this book was delightful. Full of ideas of how to bring more (for lack of a better English word) cozy into your life, it presents the case for living more simply and with more emphasis on social interactions and relationships. It also talks about cake. A lot. The problem lies in the fact that there was probably enough information for a nice long article, but it was stretched out into a book-length project. It got a bit tedious and repetitive in the last half. I bought this for kindle for $2. I definitely think I got my money's worth. However, with the formatting issues, I do think it would be more enjoyable (and more hygge) as a physical book. So, would I recommend it? Yes. With the understanding that it's a cute little book with some interesting information about attaining happiness, but a lot of it is just gimmick.

    Embrace the moment. Realise that life needs cozy moments, moments where you savour them (mindfullness anyone) and if you share them with others it can be a good thing. I think I may have knit a fair few hyggesokker.

    This was a great little book. It's one I'm going to give a really good effort to follow. Who doesn't want happiness in their lives and the principle behind Hygge (hoo-ga) appeals to me. Family, friends and the simple things are all central to hygge. They are all central to me.

    Cute. The main part of the book is all about 'cozy' and how to achieve it. I'm amazed that readers don't already know all the basics. The last part of the book does talk about the country's universal support system also contributing to a sense of well-being. Also a no-brainer, but it doesn't hurt to repeat that message.

    Best for: People looking for a little break, or need to be reminded that it’s okay to take one.In a nutshell: The head of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen offers some ideas for how to enjoy some quiet time.Line that sticks with me: “Basically, you want to think: How would a Viking squirrel furnish a living room?” (p 123)Why I chose it: Honestly, the book’s cover is adorable.Review: This is a surprisingly thick book looking at ways to incorporate the Danish concept of Hygge into life. After reading the book — which I definitely enjoyed — I think that the main idea is that we should seek to build more cosiness into our lives. Given that I live in Seattle, this is an infinitely appealing idea to me. I love curling up with a book. I love candles. I love being cozy.I’m not entirely sure if the book is necessary; do we need 280 pages to tell us that it feels good to snuggle up under a blanket with a cup of tea or cocoa in hand? Or to tell us that it’s nice to have better, softer lighting? Or that connecting on a personal level with our close friends and family is good? No. But it’s nice to be reminded of it, and the illustrations and photos are stunning. But seriously, the lighting ideas are fantastic. Also, I think I want to move to Copenhagen now.

    I now know what Hygge is. I also know a lot of other Danish words and how to pronounce them. This was a whole lot of book for what was basically covered in the first chapter. But there was the fun addition of recipes and cool graphics. I just think there was too much repetition and found myself skipping over a lot. Still, I do want to visit, sit in a cafe and partake of all the happiness...BTW, it's pronounced hue-gah

    Saw this come through processing at the library... I just really like it.
    My home is rather hygge, so it just resonated, and I like the size, the art...
    Sometimes a book is good for you because it is.

    This book helped me to understand better the Danes people. I would like to read a similar book about every nation because you can learn a lot of things from any country. This book made me to realize that happiness is the way you live every day, the way you create and maintain relationships with people you care about. The author has a good observation spirit, an encyclopedic thinking and a very simple and clear way to tell about his research and conclusions.

    Loved this book! I learnt so much about Danish culture. I also now have a label for the decor that I naturally gravitate towards, and the feel good feeling that I try in one in my life and home. Definitely recommend. A sweet, quick and interesting read

    It is interesting to know that a society promotes happiness for all its population above all else while allowing all government and society systems to perform their own functions.

    Are you looking for statistics to justify the stash of cozy blankets lurking in your closet? Or maybe your partner is looking for a reason behind that hunredth pair of socks your own. Either way, "The Little Book of Hygge" is here for you. Come follow a heartfelt Dane who is paid to explain happiness as it occurrs in the country that knows it best! Hygge and happiness are not the same thing but one often leads to the other so if you are wanting more of either this short, concise, beautifully illustrated book is exactly the right place to start.

    I wanted a short, fun book that I would be able to get through really quickly, and that’s exactly what I got. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to slow down for a moment and enjoy an easy read. I think this book is best enjoyed with a warm beverage, sitting in your comfiest chair, wrapped up in your coziest blanket. There isn’t a whole lot to say about this book other than I enjoyed listening to it and learned some interesting concepts that are found in the Danish culture (as well as some from other countries). It was really interesting to see how important the concept of Hygge is to the Danish and I was surprised that the “hygge-factor” was influential in choosing a restaurant and such. While I already enjoy some aspects of Hygge, I hope to implement some more into my life. It’s easy to forget how important the environment you are in can affect your mood, and this book does a good job reminding you that you need a happy space in your life.
