Book 46: The Little Book of Hygge

One of my goals for 2020 is to read more. What better way than to commit to reading one book a week? 52 books in 52 weeks and I’ll be sharing every single one on the blog, every Sunday. Check in for my latest reads and recommendations.

After reading “The Danish Book of Parenting” I reread “The Little Book of Hygge” to remind myself of the principles of hygge as we move into the colder months.

Hygge originates from a Norwegian word meaning “well-being” and offers many little things to make you feel happy, comfortable, and at peace. Some of the strategies in this book seem simple, however, you’ll find they’re things we gravitate towards everyday already: atmosphere, presence, pleasure, gratitude, and comfort among others.

If you’re looking to feel a bit more relaxed and joyful in the season we’re approaching, “The Little Book of Hygge” has the answers. I’m focusing on food, clothes, and home to start. Comfy warm knits, cozy blankets and candles, and hearty, filling soups.

This book is a great introduction to hygge and while I wasn’t enthralled by the text, I enjoyed it’s suggestions.
