The Little Book of Hygge – Soothing Things

The Self-Help Whisperer®

Hygge.

It is pronounced many ways:

Described many ways:

Enjoyed many ways:

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking is – quite simply – a beautiful little book about Hygge, no matter what you think of the word. In it, you will find out that ‘Hygge’ appeared in written Danish for the first time in the 1800s. (pg 44) For some reason, we (the West) didn’t glom onto it until 2016 when it started trending all over the place.

Oh, and it’s written by some guy in the Happiness Research Institute, Copenhagen.

Seriously?

Uh. Yeah. 🙂

There is a manifesto, which I found odd because I equate that word with terrorism. Hygge Terrorism? Don’t think so. But I should have known better since a friend of mine coined the phrase (Wo)manifesto – thanks Bliss Mistress Edie! I mean, c’mon… it’s all good!

  1. I’ve recently signed up for an online course on Hygge which I’m planning to do over the winter months. I love the idea and have no idea why it took us so long to catch up!
