The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking

This is a definitive guide to Danish wellbeing from Meik Wiking the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. The perfect book for culture vultures and those wishing to look a little deeper into the little things and what really matters. A great read, gift and coffee table book, with beauitful images too. 

Hygge has been called everything from "the art of creating intimacy", "cosines of the soul", "the absence of annoyance" to "taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things”, "cosy togetherness" and Meik’s personal favourite "cocoa by candlelight". It is about an atmosphere and an experience rather than things. It is about being with the people you love; a feeling of home; to feel safe; to feel shielded from the world and allowing yourself to let your guards down.

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, including spending more quality time with friends and family and enjoying 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. 16 sections on Hygge from togetherness and the importance of lighting and design through to hygge all year round as well as the five dimensions of hygge.
