BOOK

THE BOOK OF HYGGE: THE DAN­ISH ART OF LIV­ING WELL Hygge is a word that has sifted to the sur­face in re­cent years but it’s not a new con­cept. The Danes have en­joyed hygge for hun­dreds of years, and are mea­sured as one of the hap­pi­est na­tions in the world. But at the heart of Dan­ish life and at the core of hygge, is a qual­ity that is less easy to quan­tify – con­tent­ment. In Den­mark, hygge is a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence in the back­drop of every­day life – some­thing ha­bit­ual and rit­u­al­is­tic. Hygge is a qual­ity of pres­ence, a feel­ing of to­geth­er­ness, an ex­pe­ri­ence of shel­ter and well­be­ing. It’s a prac­ti­cal, easy an­ti­dote to con­sumerism, a way of be­long­ing to the mo­ment and to each other. There’s no se­cret for­mula or sin­gle recipe but there are sim­ple ways to in­vite more hygge into our lives. This book is an in­tro­duc­tion to hygge, a care­ful look at the way of life that un­der­pins it and a com­pre­hen­sive guide to all the ele­ments that can come to­gether to evoke it.
