    Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is hygge. Loosely translated, hygge - pronounced hoo-ga - is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. "Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience," Wiking explains. "It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe."

    In The Little Book of Lykke, Meik identifies the six factors that explain the majority of differences in happiness across the world - togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust, and kindness - and explores what actions we can take to become happier. As he reveals, we can deepen our blissfulness and contentment with little adjustments in our behavior, whether it's eating like the French (sitting around a table and savoring our time) or dancing the tango like Argentinians in Buenos Aires.

    Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world. That's down to one thing: hygge. ' Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. My personal favourite is cocoa by candlelight....' You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right.

    The world has reached unprecedented levels of wealth, but while we have succeeded in getting richer, we have failed in getting happier. While many people live lives of quiet desperation, a few people find themselves at the very top of the scale when it comes to happiness. Their behaviour is different. Their outlook is different. Their priorities are different. What can we learn from the world's happiest people?

    Au classement mondial du bonheur, c'est le Danemark qui occupe la première place. Pourquoi les Danois sont-ils considérés comme les gens les plus heureux du monde ? Pour Meik Wiking, la réponse c'est le "hygge" (prononcez "hoo-ga"). Intraduisible en français, le terme évoque une philosophie de vie danoise, un art de vivre basé sur la convivialité, la simplicité et le bien-être. "Le hygge est une ambiance, une véritable atmosphère", explique Meik Wiking. "C'est profiter de ceux que l'on aime en passant du temps auprès d'eux, avec ce sentiment de se sentir chez soi, en sécurité."
