Publisher's Summary

If you wish to discover a stunning sense of happiness and well-being, then hygge is just the philosophy for you.

Cravings for comfort, for coziness, for contentment: everyone experiences the desire for a happier, less stressful, and more serene life.  

Hygge, the Danish-born philosophy, is one proven way to achieve such a life. From the Old Norse for “well-being”, hygge embodies a philosophy that is as much a mind-set as it is a way of life. 

Specific activities are designed to encourage you to cultivate togetherness and joy at the smallest and simplest things in everyday life.

This audiobook provides an in-depth explanation of the hygge lifestyle as well as numerous bits of practical advice on how to practice hygge every day.  

As you listen to this audiobook, you will learn/gain the following:

  • A thorough grounding in the Danish art of hygge - the lifestyle equivalent of embracing a hug from the inside out
  • The eight ways to incorporate practical aspects of hygge into every part of your daily life, from hearth and home to food and crafts
  • The four things you should know about nurturing happy and serene relationships with children, parents, partners, and friends
  • Reasons why living your life in a constant rush and stress - even if it feels materially lucrative - is not the path to ultimate happiness. Instead, engage with the simple things in life with gratitude and pleasure.
  • Ways to achieve household harmony without sacrificing friends and self-care
  • A fundamental understanding of where true happiness comes from and how you can embark on your journey to joy today
  • And much, much more!

If you truly wish to unlock the secrets of serenity and happiness, then scroll up and click the “buy now” button.

Excellent Lifestyle Book

I had one other book on Hygge and was interested to know more about the practice. I enjoyed the book and looked forward to putting particles into my life.

Overall Interesting

The narration was well done, and the book was overall interesting. While I did gain a few new perspectives, most of the book was information I already knew. Quite a bit of the first part centers on Danish life and how Hygge is so easy due to the laws and layout of their country. While that was interesting to an extent--that information doesn't seem to be helpful with our country abiding by a different set of laws and standards.

love the information

Having explained other books on hygge by different writers, this audiobook imparted that while the word hygge is Danish, we must discover how to bring ourselves into our very own niche of calm and comfort.

Brief and informative

I feel this is a pretty important aspect of Hygge during this age of division and creeping hate in our civil discourse. If we all work to control our lives with the hygge spirit,

A Good Intro to Hygge

I got this AUDIObook to be an intro to that lifestyle. The thoughts are not new, and some bits were returned. As I was learning, I viewed the options for the hygge lifestyle as suggestions for daily living as I do live a lot of them now.

Well

The rest of the AUDIObook is full of simple ideas to implement hygge in your life - some innocent, other less so. A good reminder to stop and smell the roses in life.

Ok but it gets a bit lost

A strange audiobook that is probably better as a dip into book. Some matters feel forced ; yes there are things that are generally considered Hygge but others ( like take photos while you are out and few the birds on a picnic) are nice things to do but not really distinct to any particular culture.
