I‘m an introvert and I‘ve survived 30 New England winters… I should have known I love hygge already. I can‘t wait to take it even further!!!☕️ 🫖 ❄️ ⛄️ 🧦 🧖🏻♀️💅🏻🧶🪡🐈⬛🐈🐩🦮🪴🍁💐🍩🍺🛁💜👯♀️#book20of2022
Bailing on this one. Not sure why but it really just isn‘t flowing for me.
So there is a word for this?!!!
To start this afternoon…what else is there to do in super hot weather?
I thought this would be the perfect cozy read for January, and I was disappointed! This book felt like all filler. It was lots of predictable yet unrealistic lists. Yes, I know candles and tea create good atmosphere. No, I cannot take a trip to Copenhagen right now. I read Wintering by Katherine May last January and this did not compare!
The book started out interesting, then started getting repetitive. It could have been much shorter. But I was happy to learn more about hygge. I like the concept and the book inspired me to light more candles. 😊
Book #25 of the year: “The Little Book of Hygge” by Meik Wiking
I READ A HAPPY BOOK! Go, me! Michael got this for me last winter and I finally got around to reading it. It‘s delightful and I loved it. With insights into Danish culture and the science of happiness, Wiking created a warm welcome into hygge for the rest of the world. I look forward to incorporating these guidelines and recipes into my life, and just in time for julehygge!
Such a fun read! Gave many ideas on how to improve the hygge in your home🙂 definitely gonna try a few tips❤️
It is the last day of the #AwesomeAugust #readathon and I finally finished a audio book.
There a lot of Hygge in this book I think he broke a record with it 🤔😆

My life craves hygge!🧡🖤🤍
Hot chocolate, warm blankets, good books, candlelight 🕯 and the right weather🍂🍁⛈
Time to incorporate more hygge into my daily life!🧡
Taking a break from Caste.
Easy to pick up this book here and there. While I‘ve read most of these concepts about hygge in articles, learning more about the nuances of this tradition, emotion, state of being from a Danish author was well worth my time. At the end of the book, he refers to the Danish welfare state as one of the main reasons that Denmark consistently ranks high on happiness surveys. Makes me want to read the The Almost Nearly Perfect People.
😲 This tradition for children‘s birthday parties gives some context for the gruesomely vivid details in Nordic and Scandinavian murder mysteries. Not that I haven‘t loved every Nordic and Scandinavian murder mystery that I have read. But wow, cutting the throat of the gingerbread man? I thought decapitating animal cookies was harsh.🤣
A nice reminder to slow down and make the most of what we have in abundance everyday. Be in the now, be content and be grateful.
It‘s a pleasant surprise that I‘ve already embedded many those Hygge drivers in my home and living. What‘s significantly missing is: more cakes in the office (post covid) and work less! 🥲
I personally didn‘t enjoy this. I always have a hard time getting into non-fiction and this was one that i could not continue reading for maybe more than five minutes per session. Maybe I‘ll give it another chance another time. But I don‘t think I‘m in the right headspace at the moment to do that.
It is a good book to learn about different culture & different community. Though few hyggie ideas were impractical to tropical countries, it has many inputs for a happy life. It illustrates the Importance of relationships, journal writing & being with nature. I appreciated the solid scientific evidences mentioned in this book. I listen to this audiobook & author‘s own narration made it a good listen. 3.5🌟

Seemed appropriate for today, with about two feet of snow on the ground and more falling.
I received a lovely mystery package in the post last week, and even though I *thought* I‘d posted on Litsy about it, I most definitely hadn‘t, which was very remiss of me. Thanks for getting it to me so quickly, @Karkar ! I‘m enjoying my first swap very much so far. It‘s a good time of year to get fun mail. #bookcupidswap @candority

Nothing like starting the new year with a dose of hygge. The hubs and I are embracing all things hygge this year and it brings such joy and warmth to an otherwise dark and dreary season. Loved all the tips in this book that helped round out a sometimes vague definition of the increasingly popular term.
Lighting my candles and beginning now to prep for The Long Winter 2021. 😂 #CurrentlyReading
A most read during these crazy times! Highly recommend braised pork in dark beer with potato mash for dinner and a lot of candles then a cozy blanket and good book:) If you quilt, it creates Hygge environment. If you don‘t quilt, it‘s easy to learn (YouTube), a great hobby for all ages and anxiety reducer.
If I like the Blinks, I'll snag the full book. #blinkist
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I adored this book, and have taken many of Meik Wiking‘s lessons on board. Just reading the book inspired feelings of comfort and contentment. I will make a concerted effort to find hygge in my home and surroundings, to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and take time to be grateful. (#Scarathlon2020, #TeamSlaughter (6pts), #CYOReadathon)
I‘m going to enjoy reading this with a cup of it cocoa.
It's an interesting approach to a to a full and happy life. I do see merit in slowing down and enjoying the little things around you: your hobbies, family, friends, quiet, coziness.

Today in self-care: Being awake before anyone else and eating pop tarts and reading about hygge.
While enjoying ‘The Little Book of Hygge‘, I happened to come across this photo on Pinterest. This is a pretty good example of what hygge looks like to me. I imagine there are also wooden bookshelves, a fireplace, more cozy seating for guests, the sound of rain outside, cake to eat and of course a good book in my hand. #perfectreadingspot

I really liked this book. I was initially drawn to it because I‘m not a big fan of winter, and I live in Wisconsin. So there are several months where I miss the sun and warmer weather. The concept of hygge has great ideas for greater happiness in life in general but particularly in darker months. Such an enjoyable read and ideas to incorporate happiness in all things.
How would a Viking squirrel furnish a living room 🤣
This was a fun short little non-fiction book about a Danish concept. I didn't discover anything life-altering but it was a good reminder to take pleasure in life's everyday good things like friends, books, tea, fireplaces, and comfort food. I think I am already quite a hyggelig person. Also, it made me want to visit Denmark and has already got me burning more candles. I'd like to have a look at the print version to try a few of the Danish recipes.
