Hygge at Home and Living: 2 Manuscripts: A Simple Guide To Embrace the Danish Art of Happiness, Live a Balanced Life and Be Happy and Healthy in Your Daily Life

Having the two books combined into one recording is convenient. A good value. Here are my reviews of the two books:


Hygge Home
The book goes into depth about incorporating Hygge in your home. There is a lot of information to process so you will want to relisten to the book many times as you work through decluttering, organizing, and making more of a happy home. This will really help on my journey! Nicely read by the narrator.
------
Hygge Living
This book gives you an overall view of Hygge, Including but not limited to:

Decluttering and how to fit it in your schedule, not having too many possessions, determining which are unnecessary items.

Comfort for the home and the importance of room lighting.

Puting balance in your life, finding joy in simple things, mindfulness and being in the moment, choosing experiences that nurture you.

I will be relistening many times. I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

This is the 2nd book in the Cindy York Mysteries series but it stands alone. Cindy York and her business partner, Jacques, have secured a big real estate deal. The house belongs to her best friend's brother. The best friend, had committed suicide 25 yrs ago, or was it something more sinister!. This is an intense story with interesting characters. The narrator did an excellent job. I now want to read the first story in the series! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
