Publisher's Summary

What makes Denmark the happiest country in the world? This question has a one-word answer.

Hygge is a philosophy of life that was founded by Danes, and Danes also happen to be the happiest people on earth. Coincidence? Absolutely not!

The concept of Hygge and secret to the happiness of Denmark is finally beginning to enter the cultures of other countries around the world.

Hygge, pronounced hue-guh (not hoo-ga like many say), is a Danish term and it is a difficult word to define in one sentence. There really aren't any synonyms for the word in the English language. Hygge is a great way for many people to find simplicity, and ultimately happiness in life, fueled by togetherness, contentment, and just a sense of well-being and appreciation. In this book, you learn everything that you need to know about how you can implement Hygge into every aspect of your life, and increase your quality of life.

The great thing about Hygge is that it is something that you can enjoy all year long. It is a feeling of being grateful and just happy for what you have in life, being able to spend time with the ones you love, and being able to find an escape from the world no matter what is going on. Hygge can be experienced no matter where you are, and learning how to enjoy it and let it lead you can make a big difference in the level of happiness that you feel each day. This book is going to really explain Hygge in more detail and can it can help you gain this happiness in your own life.

    "Love, love this Book....."

    This book breaks the concept up into an easy list of ideas to choose from, just pick what you want to implement today and go for it. I think the biggest hurdle with this book is not letting it become a to do list that has to be done, which undermines the end goal. I think in the end, I read through the whole thing, am working on a few projects to bring more hygge in, and will then go back in the future and pick a few more to work on. Quick as well.

    Any additional comments?

    The author offers both a clear understanding of Hygge along with practical suggestions for creating a semblance of Hygge in the midst of the crazy busy lives in which most people in the U.S. are caught today.I find it particularly useful in getting through gloomy..<br/>I encourage you to listen it for some positivity.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I am really finding the idea of hygge useful to improving my life and calming my anxiety. This is one of the several recent books on it that is lovely and I encourage you to listen it for some positivity.<br/>


    Any additional comments?

    A common sense guide to creating hygge! It'd be better if there were inspirational photographs or illustrations.<br/>

    "Great book to learn about Hygge..................."

    Very sweet book on the art of coziness. My dad gifted it for me, then I bought one and gifted it to a dear friend along with a candle. Spreads joy and warmth...

    Bought several copies-one for me and several gifts. A fun book and so indicative of Scandinavians of which I am one!

    Great One..

    Any additional comments?

    The author talks about moments of hygge he has experienced in his own life and gives a lot of suggestions how to bring more hygge into your own life. There are even recipes for hygge food. There is also a smattering of information from his research about what makes people happy and what makes some countries happier as a whole than others.<br/>

    Any additional comments?

    I have been looking for this book all of my life! What a great read! I bought it thinking it might be something to read a chapter at a time on the potty or whatever! I started it and couldn't put it down. My love of a warm drink, a fire and a blanket to start or end my day gives me a better feeling than a pay raise! I have oversimplified this book, but it is a simple way to describe a complex topic!<br/>

    "A very wonderful, real book!"

    This is the perfect book to get you on the right path to minimalism and figuring out how you could live a meaningful life.I think this book has a lot of things in it that we all know deep down but do not dare face because we are too comfortable in our everyday humdrum lives. It has helped me to examine my life and live more authentically.I think the minimalist philosophy has the potential to truly change lives for the better.

    "easy steps to show you how you can become.."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hygge to be better than the print version?

    i liked the print version.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    heard it in 2 sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    You are going to learn what hygge is. You will see that our perception of minimalism has been crafted from fiction books and their emphasis on extreme minimalists. We’ll present easy steps to show you how you can become a true minimalist without giving up everything you love. Highly recommended!<br/>
