Hygge is about enjoying the small things in life. I guess you already know that. No, the Danish people didn’t discover a mystic secret or the recipe for happiness. They simply enjoy it, while the rest of us perhaps find ourselves being too busy.
The Little Book of Hygge is the definitive, must-read introduction to hygge, written by Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. The book is packed full of original research on hygge, conducted by Meik and his team, along with beautiful photographs, recipes and ideas to help you add a touch of hygge to your life.
It’s easy to forget that life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon and we better find a moment to relax and add a bit of Hygge in it. At the end isn’t that all we need in life?
For example it might be like making a hot chocolate, we will never forget to put milk or cacao but just a dash of cinnamon might be that unique spice that will make our drink special. The same goes for Hygge. We all think about our work, duties and so on but maybe the missing piece of the puzzle is this rare moments when we will be surrounded with friends or family and have fun.
You will not find anything that you already haven’t known about happiness but this book will make you smile while you are reading it. Sometimes it’s all we are looking for in a book.
