One little word holds the secret to all that matters in life:
This magical Scandinavian concept, pronounced 'hue-guh', is the key to why Denmark is the happiest nation on earth. With no equivalent in the English language, this word describes a moment of happiness, warmth or togetherness, that can be found from the little things in life.
We all know this feeling of hygge instinctively. It happens when you curl up in your favourite spot with an absorbing book, or when you share a delicious meal with wonderful friends. But we don't all know how to make time for these moments.
Marie Tourell Søderberg's beautiful, authentic guide will show you that hygge is truly all around you, if you know where to look. From home interiors to cooking, hygge touches every aspect of life. This book will teach you how to say hygge, how to find hygge, and how to create hygge. It will help you to appreciate just how important these moments are, and why in our busy modern lives it's more vital than ever to switch off and make time for hygge.
