Publisher's Summary

Is your life so crazy busy that you don’t even remember the last time you sat down and got to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea? 

Remember those carefree days when you sat for hours talking with your girlfriends or your buddies without interruption? Remember how you felt? Happy. Relaxed. Content. Comfortable. It was just you and them. 

That level of happiness is Hygge. 

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is the simple, stress-free lifestyle that the Danish and Norwegians have been living for centuries. Denmark and Norway both regularly rank in the top three happiest countries in the world and Hygge is the main reason why. 

Hygge has more to do with the emotional happiness experienced by developing a relaxed, stress-free way of life and less to do with acquiring monetary possessions. 

In this book, you will be shown how you can easily implement the Hygge way of life regardless of where you live and the amount of money in your bank account. 

Learn how everyday interactions with friends and family can help you practice the principles of Hygge. 

Even with today’s hectic lifestyle, that simple, stress-free lifestyle is something that can easily be obtained. By simply making one small change a day, you can easily live the Hygge lifestyle. Best of all, this book shows you how these changes don’t have to cost you anything. 

Hygge encourages you to value moments and experiences over money and meaningless possessions. 

To help you easily incorporate Hygge into your life, a 21 Days of Hygge Challenge is included in the book. In just three short weeks, you can replace your harried life with one of calm and tranquility. 

It is never too late to start living the calming Hygge lifestyle. Get your copy today to start the 21 Days of Hygge Challenge and start living the relaxed, less stressful Hygge lifestyle.

hygge

Hygge seems to be a concept similar in some ways to the recent interests in minimalism and mindfulness.  It is defined as a "quality of coziness" and is focused on your own comfort and joy.

This book discusses hygge with regards to your home, decor, pets, children, work, relationships, and finances.

I find the notion of "Swedish Death Cleaning" to be intriguing, although I find it less morbid to pretend I am moving rather than dying.

The narration is quite soothing and fits in well with the material.

I received this book through Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review. 2.5/5 stars.

Interesting Concept

A quick listen that I will listen to regularly to make sure I completely understand the concept. I heard the term Hygge from my WW pamphlet of all places. It immediately intrigued me and I purchased the book. My word for 2019 is, Intentionality, and this book will be a large part of it! I highly recommend this book to people who want a more comfortable life!

This book will be a good start.

If I understand the concept, this book itself is hygge. Charming, happy and positive. The translation differences are adorable. Just a fun, sweet read for a gloomy, blustery winter day. It doesn't quite flow as other books but I do love that it is so different than other books and it's a very relaxing and interesting read!

I enjoyed learning about hygge and it’s positive e

I enjoyed the simplicity of the book. The book was informative without being preachy and went further into the meaning of Hygge than blankets and candles. Thank you for sharing.

I Like It

A very honest book that gives so many delightful insights into life in Denmark, especially the very high value the people place on sharing life together and the joys they have of giving and receiving their life experiences in a very mutually satisfying and safe and comfortable way.

Useful Book

This is a wonderful little book. I love re-reading it which gives me a sense of hygge just in doing that curled up on my couch. The illustrations are a plus to the author's delightful writing. I have other little books on hygge but this really is the best and my favorite. This little book also makes a great gift that others enjoy.

Get It

That is the premise to "Hygge", a Danish way of experiencing life. This book is a good source of information and suggestions for living a "Hygge" life. Try it. In our fast paced world, a little slow and intentional living is a good gift to give yourself and those around you.

Fabulous

So this Danish concept of cozy - recognizing the warmth and comfort in simple things and activities - totally resonates with me. I have, in my brief acquaintance with the idea, have actually recognized the hygge surrounds me, just waiting to be cultivated. No complex systems. No check sheets. Just a cup of tea, some woolen socks, and the acknowledgement of the moment.

Wealth Information

Everyone trying to figure out what lens can be used to improve life on a day to day basis will enjoy this book. It contemplates how to add coziness and provides details of how the Danes do and have for many years. Candles, companions, and comfort. One of my favorite parts describes conversation with no one showing off. Sounds kind of ideal to me!
