Publisher's Summary

Many books can tell you how to be hygge but this book will actually show you! We all have experienced the feeling of hygge, without even realizing it. But now is the time to give a name to this sensation and to learn how to fully experience it!

The "Danish coziness" theory is quickly becoming the new "French living" when referring to an optimistic and laid-back way of life. There are countless viral articles comparing the happiness levels of Americans versus Danes. Danish people are happier, more relaxed; their homes are nicer, cozier.

It's a frame of mind that seems difficult to define, yet there is a name for this slow-moving, stress-free mindset: Hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”). Hygge is about pampering yourself: Candlelight, cooking, baking, having supper with family and friends; a feast where you’re surrounded by friends and family, enjoying the simple things in life and sharing this sense of community.

Hygge is the sensation you get when you're nestled up on a sofa, in comfortable socks under a soft throw blanket, during a storm. It's that feeling when you're sharing comfort food and a chat with friends and family at a candlelit table. It is the glow of morning light shining on a fresh blue-sky day. 

In this book you will find: 

  • Hygge's origins and why it makes a difference in our busy lives
  • How to make the most of life's simple pleasures and truly embrace moderation. 
  • How to  fit hygge into all parts of your life - even if you are on a budget
  • How hygge is much more than just a concept 

A large number of individuals around the globe see hygge as an extraordinary method to live their lives to the fullest.

You will be able to be part of this amazing adventure and learn how to lead a more simple life, and be more joyful, more content, and in charge of your life. 

The book of Hygge is an encouragement to invite abundance and happiness into your life. It is a call to enjoy life by concentrating on what really matters for you

Inside, you'll find: 

  • Origin and history of hygge 
  • Experiencing hygge consistently - basic exercises

Not my favourite book.

This book explains hygge very well. Lots of strange euphemisms which I think are lost in translation, like “kick the bucket”. Narrator speaks very stilted like they are reading text with accents on odd syllables and odd parts of a sentence. Author quotes Meik Wiking’s book on Hygge a lot. The structure of the book seems to repeat itself. As if the book is rewritten from half way through using slightly different phrases. 🙃

Life changing...

Kept it simple + clear concepts + amusing. Easy to listen inviting a mug of tea and cookies in a very hygge environment 😊 In tiny beautiful ways... mostly twinkling Christmas lights year round and lots of candles and cozy blankets in our home.

I enjoyed it

This book was a quick listen for a ski trip I took with my friends... ironically it talks about how ski trips with friends are very "HYGGE". I enjoyed it however it felt a little repetitive in spots. I felt like it could be more than what it was however I still enjoyed listeing it.

Excellent motivational advice.

I really like this audio book. It came in handy when I was creating my home. This little audio book explains how feeling cozy makes people happy with many case studies that come from Danish people. The author runs a happy thinktank that studies happiness and is danish so there are a lot of Danish case studies on the simple things that make you happy.
