Have you heard of Lykke, Hygge and Lagom? I bet you have, they are all Scandinavian words which have become extremely popular lately. We might find it difficult to pronounce them but that won’t stop us from trying to represent them in our lives.
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.
Lykke is the Danish word for happiness. Danish people have been consistently ranked as the happiest people in the world so this may have been a deciding factor in Mike’s naming of this book. This is his second book, his first one is The little book of Hygge, which is a worldwide bestseller. Meanwhile he is working as the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, so who if not him, can teach us more about how to achieve happiness in our life.
