Publisher's Summary

Picture this. You've spent a lovely night sitting by the fireplace, enjoying a big cup of cocoa, while catching up with your loved ones. You're totally in the moment and find yourself thinking, "This is indeed one of the greatest pleasures of life."

Cut to another scenario, you have just got out of bed of a chilly wintery morning, lit a scented candled in the room, wrapped yourself in a cozy blanket, and spent the day reading your favorite book. Again the familiar "pleasures of life" feeling.

Think about a particularly stormy night that you spent indoors, enjoying a round of warm drinks and snacks, while discussing interesting current events with a bunch of friends. What's all this about? This is exactly what hygge is in simple words.

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is gaining global recognition as a happiness, togetherness, and wellness concept. The New Yorker featured an entire piece titled, "The Year of Hygge, The Danish Obsession with Getting Cozy."

This book will explore Hygge and teach you all you need to know in order to incorporate some of its principles into your life to create a feeling of peace, joy and happiness every day.

    "THE AWESOME BOOK!!!"

    This is a very informative introduction to the art of hygge. If you are starting out on learning what the concept of hygge is and what it involves this is the the book for you. I liked that everything was written in short bursts but with loads of information. I am defenitely going to use this as a guide to create hygge in my home.

    "like it very much"

    Having lived in Copenhagen, I wanted to be reminded of their magical hospitality, and to determine whether or not anyone could properly portray it. It is a bit like describing love, and it may have any aspect of that very thing. The author does a good job of suggesting ways to achieve the cozy situation. There is much insight into the joy of Danish life. It can set the reader on the search for hygge. CS

    "Helpful book"

    I had never heard of the Danish concept of "Hygge" before this book, but I have to say I absolutely loved it! I guess you could say it's sort of the same concept as "mindfulness" but not exactly. If the idea of slowing down, of appreciating the small things in life and seeing the beauty in everyday moments appeals to you, you will love this book!

    "nice performance"

    Loved this book! A great introduction to Hygge for someone living in America. I have already integrated many of the ideas Wiking suggests and my home is feeling much more hyggelig. It's an easy read. Not too in depth, but insightful. Like another reviewer, trying to figure out how to hygge in the summer when it's humid and muggy around here on the southeast coast. I think I see picnics and bonfires with friends in my future!

    "beatiful boook"

    This is a delightful little book. To start, the design and illustrations are beautiful designs. Some of the reviews here on Amazon mention the book being repetitive and too simple, but I think that's kind of the point of hygge: simplicity.highly recommended

    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.

    "good and useful..."

    This book made me so incredibly happy while reading it. The phenomenon and idea of Hygge is something that appeals to my very soul, and it is something that I want to try and implement far more in my life than I already am. As my main resolution for this year is to stay happy, it seems inevitable that I would work towards the Hygge lifestyle.

    I was not familiar with the hygge way of thinking and living but thanks to this book I learned more about this Danish lifestyle. The book explains the basic things that you need to know about hygge and will ensure you that you will be happy after implementing the ideas to your life. The book is easy to follow and understand. I will definitly check out more about this subject because I am triggered to learn more.

    "worth buying...."

    I heard about Hygge before but never knew anything about it. I love the wellness and cozy feeling that you can get from the right environment given from Hygge. It becomes clear as to why the Danish are the happiest people in the world if they practice this way of life. This book covers topics like food and drinks with tons of clearly laid-out recipes like Danish Sugared Potatoes or Icelandic Kebabs and 10 things you need to create the perfect Hygge Home.

    "Great book"

    I've been to Denmark and Germany as an exchange student and have experienced hygge-tea and cake or cookies at 3pm daily, candles, saunas, less TV, walks with friends and family. etc. It was very special and a beautiful way to live. This book reminded me a lot of the time I spent there. I will definitely use these ideas and recipes to bring some more hygge into our home. I think we all have it to a degree., but to consciously embrace it is the key!
