With a world full of political bafoons causing frightening headlines, it's easy to find oneself in a helpless depression slump. It's essential to take a step back to focus on your happiness before you get too tied up in it all. After all, you can't pour from an empty cup.
After doing some research on how to remain cheerful through pressing times, I came across Meik Wiking's Little Book of Hygge.
Hygge is a lifestyle movement that encourages you to slow down, relax, and enjoy life — surrounding yourself with comfort, love, and beauty.
The Danish word "hygge" describes a feeling of ultimate coziness. It originates from the Norwegian word "well-being" and is pronounced: "Hoo-Gah." It's ok; I said it differently in my mind too.
According to social surveys, Danes are the happiest people in the world. So what ingredient are the rest of us missing!? How are hygge and happiness linked?
Well, that's what Meik Wiking (CEO of the Happiness Research Institute) talks about in his book: Little Book Of Hygge. Purchase (here) - hardcover $11.49, or, on Kindle $2.99.
