The Danish word hygge is one of those beautiful words that doesn't directly translate into English, but it more or less means comfort, warmth or togetherness.

Hygge is the feeling you get when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, in warm knitted socks, in front of the fire, when it is dark, cold and stormy outside. It that feeling when you are sharing good, comfort food with your closest friends, by candle light and exchanging easy conversation. It is those cold, crisp blue sky mornings when the light through your window is just right.

Denmark is the happiest nation in the world and Meik puts this largely down to them living the hygge way. They focus on the small things that really matter, spend more quality time with friends and family and enjoy the good things in life. The Little Book of Hygge will give you practical steps and tips to become more hygge: how to pick the right lighting, organise a dinner party and even how to dress hygge, all backed up by Meik's years' of research at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen.

This year live more like a Dane, embrace hygge and become happier.

About the Author

Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. He is committed to finding out what makes people happy and has concluded that hygge is the magic ingredient that makes Danes the happiest nation in the world.

    Comments about The Little Book of Hygge:

    Great, simple book that envelopes the spirit and qualities that are Hygge. Definitely understand and get a sense of the Danish culture and cultural spirit through this easy to read book. Beautifully presented (noticed many of the images are used in other books about Denmark to! increases familiarity??)
    It's an ideal gift especially for someone who loves to travel and explore other cultures. It's obvious why it's a bestseller. Well done to The Happiness Institute for producing!

      Comments about The Little Book of Hygge:

      A hard concept to explain but when you read about the practice of making your home have that 'hygge' feeling its easy to understand. A great book to read if you are planning on decorating in Scandi style, planning on travelling to Scandinavian countries or just want to understand more about Danish culture in particular. Written in a really reader friendly way its a book you can refer to over and over again.
