Meik Wiking, CEO of Copenhagen-based Happiness Research Institute, outlines why Danes are some of the happiest people in the world. Covering topics from lighting to food, and including recipes and twelve must-have Christmas traditions, Wiking shares the concept of hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) with the rest of the world.

The Little Book of Hygge was pleasant enough, but as an introvert, I found very little new information here. I try to maintain a cozy, welcoming home and I’ve always preferred low lighting. I love candles (although not to the extent that Danes apparently do), sweets, comfort food, and Christmas. My list of close friends is small but I try to see them every time I visit home. I’m apparently already living a hygge lifestyle.

The one idea that I really hope to incorporate when my husband and I stop traveling with his job is hosting a regular night for friends to come over. We tend to meet everyone at restaurants, which limits our time together. A game night or potluck is more personal. Well, it’s more hygge.

I found the book to be repetitive. I was truly tired of the word hygge and all its variations by the time I finished reading this. Every fifth word was hygge (that’s probably an exaggeration). Mr. Wiking frequently cross references his topics. Considering that it’s only 225 small pages with numerous illustrations, I found that curious. I read it in one sitting so there was absolutely no need to tell me that candles were mentioned on other pages every time they came up.

The book itself is a pleasure to hold. It’s just the right size to fit my hands, lightweight, with illustrations in a style that I can only describe as Scandinavian. I found myself just enjoying the feel of the paper.

The Little Book of Hygge does have good ideas and I recommend it for people who want to foster a slower, more cozy and intimate lifestyle. Since that’s already my preference, others, possibly extroverts, may find more new ideas to adopt than I did. ( )

I liked the book, but... I think the author has shared in a company that sells woollen socks and or one that makes candles. The book has quite some pages, all of them filled with elaborations of what was written in the first chapter.
Loved the pictures, stole one of the recipes to try.

The main thing I will remember, that will stick with me from this book is, that it's important to enjoy small things, be grateful for all the small (free) things in life: a beautiful sunrise, a good conversation with people you like/trust, a tasteful evening meal, a walk with your dog through nature. You're richer than you think: if you have a house you can call home, have enough to eat every day and if you're more or less healthy: that's a lot already.

Apart from this 'lesson' this book was a quick read, a reminder of why my time in Georgia (country) still feels so good after so many years and why I love visiting Scandinavia so much. ( )

This is about a way of living that leads to happiness. Everything seems small and makes sense. I'm going to try to take some of this to heart and make some changes. ( )

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking is essentially your go-to introduction to all things hygge. Mr. Wiking takes the time to define hygge, which is not an easy feat given that it really has no clear definition. He also breaks down each important element of hygge to help readers better understand the concept.

Given that the Danish are the happiest in the world, the logical conclusion is that this concept of hygge, which is such a vital part of their cultural identity, must be a contributing factor. Mr. Wiking furthers this theory by providing data that help corroborate his point. As we remain in the throes of winter and almost one year into the pandemic, The Little Book of Hygge will help you combat the winter and pandemic blues. ( )

Ho scoperto che le mie tendenze più deleterie: l'amore per le luci fioche, quello per le stagioni fredde e le giornate piovose, la passione per le coperte e la comodità, la mia propensione ad evitare le occasioni sociali intense, ad alcune latitudini non solo sono socialmente accettate, ma sono considerate addirittura parte del costume nazionale, tanto da meritarsi anche un nome specifico: la Hygge.
Hygge (non ho idea di come si pronunci questa parola), è un termine danese intraducibile in altre lingue che denota tutto ciò che ci da conforto, ci fa sentire protetti, è morbido, caldo, dolce e familiare, insomma qualunque cosa faccia impazzire di gioia l'introverso medio.
Il libro non è uno studio sistematico del concetto di Hygge come mi aspettavo, ma una raccolta di consigli su come rendere più "hyggelig" la propria vita. Niente di particolarmente approfondito, ma risulta comunque una lettura piacevole, soprattutto quando scopri che da qualche parte nel mondo, esiste un posto in cui il concetto di felicità corrisponde esattamente al tuo.

Het boek Hygge, De Deense Kunst van het Leven, trekt in een boekhandel mijn aandacht: het is prachtig vormgegeven, ik word er blij van als ik het zie en in mijn handen neem. Een mooi hardcover boek, met rustige kleuren, tekeningen en foto’s. Ik ben mijn hele leven al geïnteresseerd in Levenskunst – van de Deen Meik Wiking, die in het gelukkigste land van de wereld woont en ook nog eens directeur van het Happiness Research Institute is, hoor ik dus graag zijn visie...lees verder >
