Danish concept of Hygge I think it is pronounced hoo gah or something Essentially it seems concept of Hygge I think it is pronounced hoo gah or something Essentially it seems be the notion of having comfortable spaces at home and work feeling happy and safe and at peace All good so far Well yes of course it doesn t take a genus to work out that having a favourite blanket is comforting It makes the obvious connection that having a good home work balance and having a strong social network is good for you Yep still with youBut what underpins this is a load of consumerist crap pages and pages of what expensive lighting candles and furniture you should buy Lots of stating the bloody obvious if you are cold put some nice woollen socks on The book is terribly middle class it reeks of get away to your cabin at the weekend and enjoy some hygge Yes millions of us have weekend retreats on tapI get that you can do hygge on the cheap and I agree totally that allowing yourself in the modern world to make time for your self and to do special things and have comfort in your life is good I don t buy that eating lots of cake is hygge or lighting a candle will transform your life My problem with this book is that it takes some pretty universal notions and translates them into a lifestyle or a fashion This book gets two stars because it is actually very pretty and beautiful to flick through and I did have a hygge moment cuddling my 3 year old daughter whilst reading the book She them shit herself unfortunately and ruined the moment ha ha It annoyed me as a vegan that seemingly to get a hygge moment you had to inflict pain on other creatures there are lots of recipes in here for meat heavy dishes you get told you may be lucky to see a pig roast in one section and them espouses the hygge of hunting and fishing how comforting to witness the slow charring of a once happy pigI think I would be happy if I sat down with the TV off and read I love being warm in my home and eating nice food unfortunately life has it s stresses too and my kids are hardly the uietest The book does make it clear that stress won t go away it s about creating hygge to counter it and I suppose there is some truth in this there is a good message which is be kind to yourself What isn t good in this book is that despite it being written by a social science the actual evidence for hygge is exceptionally tenuous There are some giant leaps from studies that suggest Danes are happy glosses over the socio political elements and attributes happiness to hygge it s not the most compelling argument for spending a month s salary on a vase Lifecycle of an idea1 hear about it on NPR2 identify with it tell friends about it3 buy book about it4 begin reading book5 realise there are suddenly a lot of books on this topic6 start to suspect book is ust a big advertisement put out by one of those agencies that determines what will be trendy for next season7 book seems to really want you to buy woolen socks8 book is poorly written and repeats itself9 see a new twee danish crap store in your big mall10 reach peak despair11 burn book the crackling fire you are told is very hygge12 find peace with the ease with which the corporate world manipulates your interests and desires13 write a goodreads revie.

All Of Those Things of things much as the next person probably but I ll Thief (Sevy, just say that I m glad I checked this one out from the library instead of buying this book in order to learn these pearls of wisdom This book is beautifully presented nice cover uality paper modern typeface and beautiful photography Looks like cross between an Ikea catalogue and a Waitrose food magazine I found the content fluffy repetitive and patronising I m not danish and have not previously heard of Hygge but am aware that candles real fires friends and sharing food you have cooked yourself is good fun and makes you happy I thought the book was going to let me in on some secrets of Danish happiness I was disappointed to find it stated the obvious but lots of people seem to really like it This Little Book of Hygge written by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen sets out to explore the Danish phenomenon hygge What it is and how you can achieve it It s always fascinating to read about your own people but to me this petite book was even fascinating because it explores something that I consider a constant and a necessity in my everyday life The uestion is Do I agree with everything in this book Does it give you an honest impression of Danes lives happiness and how we hygge The 45 stars This book made me so incredibly happy while reading it The phenomenon and idea of hygge is something that appeals to my very soul and it is something that I want to try and implement far in my life than I already am As my main resolution for this year is to stay happy it seems inevitable that I would work towards the hygge lifestyle This book is much better than the previous hygge book that I read last year it is written by Meik Wiking who is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen so it feels inevitable that he would know exactly what he is talking about An element of this book that really made me geek out and fall in love were all the statistics from various surveys that the Institute had carried out which showed people s general opinions on various aspects of hygge I liked seeing the evidence of people s feelings and how they implemented hygge in their livesThe book itself is absolutely beautiful full of gorgeous photographs and illustrations and is aoy to read through I felt a genuine sense of happiness and cosiness as I read through this curled up on my sofa with plenty of cushions and a mug of tea by my side I tried to space out my reading and savour the book but unfortunately I was far too involved to do soMy only issue with this book and thus the reason I knocked it down a half star is because I felt that at times it was a little too focused on activities that were accessible to Danish people Of course hygge is a Danish phenomenon and I loved finding out the statistics on many things for example how many candles Danish people burn weekly but at times I felt like the tips on how to implement hygge elements in my life were ust out of reach based on where I live However it was only a slight ualm and there is plenty in this book for me to try and experience with numerous recipes ideas for social occasions and other such things that I can try outOverall I thought
this was a great book and as I received it as a present I would was a great book and as I received it as a present I would say this would make a great gift to anyone who likes the cosier uieter side of live and wants to implement hygge in their lifestyle A wonderful reading experience I recently very spontaneously decided to become a Viking move to Denmark And now I need to prepareAnd this means on top of improving my knowledge of Danish history geography language culture and pop culture I need to do some reading on Danish lifestyle I thought The Little Book of Hygge must be the third best book on the topic after Asterix and the Great Crossing and Asterix and the NormansLet 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 wit.
