Publisher's Summary

Hygge and Lagom, your personal prescription for happiness and balance in an unhappy and out of control world! 

If you are feeling as though you’ve lost your way recently, you’re not alone. Many of us feel disconnected from the world we live in. 

It’s no wonder, given just how fast the world moves these days. Technology brings so many benefits, but it comes at a steep cost. Our happiness. 

Many of us are left feeling alone, disillusioned, and unhappy. These feelings make us withdraw from family, friends, and even the society to which we belong. 

Join the happiest people on Earth… 

Hygge and Lagom are two Scandinavian principles that are catching on in the rest of the world. For a long time, these countries have topped the charts in the world’s “happiness index.” 

What makes them so different and what are these two special principles? 

This book is actually TWO books in One. 

You get a full discussion on both, including 21-day challenges to help you adopt these principles.

Either book stands their own, but the real synergy takes place when you embrace both. This will give you a feeling of lasting happiness and contentment. One that you can practice for a lifetime and join those Scandinavians as some of the happiest and most fulfilled people on the planet. 

You’ll learn how practicing Hygge and Lagom can give you practical advice on how to: 

  • Furnish your home so you are left feeling tranquil and peaceful. Turning your home into a place of refuge from the modern world.
  • Embrace nature to feel a connection to the natural world.
  • Improve your attitude about work and end work-place frustration. 
  • Get that feeling of work-life balance that so many of us lack.
  • Practice the “Do’s and Don’ts” that are the keys to successful relationships.
  • Survive the holidays that so many of us find stressful and overwhelming.
  • Integrate nature’s seasons into your own life and mirror them to feel centered and balanced.

Reconnect with yourself, find your happiness, and achieve balance today.

Useful and Positive!

This is a great book bundle for ways to try to change your life/ lifestyle. As a person who suffers from anxiety and stress, I found many of these tips helpful and actually useful on a daily basis without disrupting my normal schedule. The main take away that I got from this book was to be more grateful (even for the little things), make time for yourself, spend more time with family, declutter your home, and relax to find happiness and balance within your life. I enjoyed the recipes that were in each book and the websites of where you can find more. I appreciated that there were also 21 day challenges to try to incorporate the ideals of each concept into your daily life at the end of each book. Sarah did a great job narrating this bundle. Her tone was uplifting, personal, and non accusatory with what she was saying. It made me feel like I could relate to the concepts better by not feeling ashamed for not having my life as together as I wish it was.

I'm already more at peace!!!

This book was so informative and helped to show me what I need to do differently in the rat race I call life. It focuses on the important things that we tend to lose sight of. It really taught me a lot and I will be applying this to my life in every way I can.

Awful grammar & inaccurate pronunciation distracts from the content

Ughhh.....where do I begin?!
The inempt grammatical construction of sentences in this book makes it really hard to grasp!
Further, the narrator’s voice and the lack of appropriate cadence makes it sound like it’s read by a computer!
Also I don’t know if it’s A) written badly OR B) whether the narrator just don’t know how to pronounce words (eg: she keeps saying “contempt” when it’s obvious that the right word would be “content” as In “a feeling contentment”) or C) BOTH A & B because sometimes the grammar is just OFF (eg: one sentence goes “a home that is “cluttered free” ....” yikes)
I really really wanted to like this book and want to learn more about this topic BUT the poor writing is simply unbelievably distracting!!

Interesting concept

This book was interesting and a light listen. I would recommend some way to provide electronic copies of the multiple list that the listener is expected to make or you will be rewinding several times.

The two concepts boil down to minimize and know what/when is enough. Interesting ideas but very hard to implement in American society; though still a worthwhile effort. To fully absorb it will take more than one listen.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Enjoyable read on Hygge and Lagom

This is the third book that I’ve recently read on the topic of Hygge. This one was very informative and as entertaining as the others! From what I’ve gathered from the readings, Hygge is a defining characteristic of the Danish culture; Lagom is a very similar concept to Hygge and is a defining characteristic of the Swedish culture. Both concepts enable one to have a cozy, contented way of being in their life. It is a way of being that leads to contentment and satisfaction without all the striving and acquiring that most of us believe is necessary in order to have a fulfilled life.

The concept of Hygge is a fascinating one to me because of its uniqueness to the colder northern climates. One might assume that living in such a harsh climate would make most folks grumpy and not content with life; but, such is the opposite for our Danish and Swedish contemporaries! They found a way to live life to its fullest and celebrate their environment with purpose and ease. Great lessons to learn!

I recommend this book for those who are looking for a more fulfilled way of being and living. The tips and suggestions are very thought out and helpful on how to integrate these concepts into your everyday life, and who knows, you might just get Hygge while doing this!

I LOVE HUGGE AND LAGOM!

I admit, when I first about these two concepts I was skeptical. It sounded so ... simple. What in today's crazy world is simple anymore? Then I listened to these audiobooks, and now I get it. Simple! It's simply beautiful.

I'm 50 now, and really need to start looking into ways to simplify. Stress can do awful things to you, and I've been a worry-wart my entire life. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook set, and learning more about Hygge and Lagom. I think anyone would benefit from learning about these principles. I really enjoyed it, and have incorporated some of it into my life.

Learn what's REALLY IMPORTANT in life, and let go of what's not. It's awesome :)

Amazing

This book was fantastic. I think this is a book that everyone should listen to, because we live in a world that promotes a chaotic lifestyle. It is very hard to enjoy a chaotic lifestyle so this is a very good guide to how to get off the go go go crazyness. I especially like the Hygge material and will definitely be applying my notes to my life.
