    So this was my first introduction into Hygge! So many people have been talking about it and I never knew what it is and I can say that after reading this little book, I know. It explains what is Hygge and also sort of where it comes from and gives some basic pointers about how to live by it. Most of the book was fine and it gave a semi-cosy feeling, but I found the recipe part to be useless and boring.

Most of the book was fine and it gave a semi-cosy feeling, but I found the recipe part to be useless and boring. I mean if you got that far, you should understand already which of your foods are Hygge and which aren't. Some ideas are always good, sure, but you don't need a whole recipe for that. I mean, the author said to knit a scarf, but didn't give the pattern, why would recipe be different? I didn't know how to rate this because it is so short and it was more learning about Hygge than actually reading a book, so, yeah.

    This book is so white Inuits have 50 names for it. I wanted to write an hyperbolic satire of the author’s complete disconnection from reality, but I think her own words are funnier: “The art of hygge is a simple one: immerse yourself in the warmth and comfort of your beautifully lit and naturally decorated house with good friends, hearty food, and some happy conversation.  Ride your bike to the local café for some coffee and fika.  Indulge in some serene self-care, curled up in your cozy nook wi This book is so white Inuits have 50 names for it.

    So this book is really, really pretentious. Maybe that's unsurprising for a book about Danish coziness, but I think this book was super tone-deaf to the realities of many Americans. Hayden's method of achieving a cozy, happy existence requires an abundance of time. Ride your bike. Work less hours. Spend lots of time with your friends and family (who also have loads of free time). Also, here's 10+ pages just about how the Danes are 10x better than us American capitalist cogs in the machine.

If you're upper-middle class, perhaps a housewife, I think this book will be really cute and helpful for you. All it did for me was remind me how overworked I am, have no easy access to nature in walking distance, and oh, I guess buy some candles.

    I wanted to start this year on a warm happy note so I picked this book.

Denmark/ Finland/ Netherlands have been voted as the happiest countries to live many times and the art of Hygge is widely practiced in most Scandinavian countries. The book is an introduction to the world of Hygge (pronounced as Hoo- gah) - the danish art of warmth, coziness and simple pleasures. According to the author Hygge encompasses wearing warm cozy socks, lighting candles, sitting ideally in front of a warm roaring fire, breaking bread with loved ones and visiting open parks, having coffee or cocao with cakes every evening and working only 6 hours a day. Personally I think Hygge or atleast the version that the author talks about is impractical for developing Asian countries. Denmark is a developed country with free universal health care, free College education, 5 week paid vacation and 1 year paid maternity leave. So practicing the leisurely art of Hygge is more suited for them. European wellness practices like Danish Hygge, or the Italian 'Dolce far niente'( the art of doing nothing) are great for privileged inviduals as a way of life but not really practical for middle class folks like me. I think my positive take away from this book would be to have a self care day where I light some candles, curl up with my fav book in my Hyygekorg ( cozy corner) and sip some hot cocoa.I'd recommend reading this book only if you are interested in Hygge or live in a colder place.

    While this was repetitive, I also found it informative. I have heard of hygge, but never fully researched it myself. The idea of enjoying life in a calm simplistic way is intriguing to say the least. The Scandinavian way of life, being less materialistic, and to truly enjoy life's simple pleasures is aspirational. There were some grammatical errors, but it was free on kindle unlimited, so that was to be expected. Overall this was an easy, light read. While this was repetitive, I also found it informative.

    I've read The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well, and was hoping this would give me a deeper look into how to implement the concept in all aspects of my life. That's exactly what it did. While I enjoyed learning more about how Danes incorporate hygge into their everyday lives year-round, this book also makes it extremely clear that the idea of "hygge" is, in America, only something middle-class and above (and then, only those living outside of cities) can achieve.

That's exactly what it did. While I enjoyed learning more about how Danes incorporate hygge into their everyday lives year-round, this book also makes it extremely clear that the idea of "hygge" is, in America, only something middle-class and above (and then, only those living outside of cities) can achieve. It requires contentment, calm, and lack of anxiety, long lunch breaks, short work days, and spontaneous stop-bys at friends' houses. It expects simple, neutral-toned decor, lengthy explorations into nature, hours available to prepare warming meals enjoyed at set tables, and regular purchase of candles. In America, anxiety is expected and unavoidable for those who have to worry about access to food, healthcare, and education, are living in high-crime, unprotected areas, are murdered and jailed at disproportionate numbers to their light-skinned counterparts, work three jobs and never see their children because of it, and may or may not have an actual house to make "hygge." That aside, if you are, in fact, fortunate enough to be in a financial and social position to create hygge space in your life, this book is a great starting point for how to do that. There are recipes, craft ideas, and decor suggestions, as well as discussion of how to incorporate hygge into your relationships, too. Even if you can't manage all of the aspects of hygge, even including one or two in your daily life can be an emotional and mental benefit. Note: I would probably have given four stars if not for the horrible editing. It was incredibly distracting and embarrassing.

    Hygge: Unlock the Danish Art of Coziness and Happiness by Barbara Hayden Hygge book talks about what Hygge is. Danish art of coziness and happiness and how you can adapt it in your lifestyle. There are so many practical chapters about foods, clothing, customs, tradition, even crafts. Found the book interesting as I have heard about these before and have seen how Danish life, even in Vikings days of having a big great room for all to congregate.

    I mean.. If you’ve done any research on hygge, you probably don’t need this book. I didn’t realize it was so short, but once I got about half way through, I was grateful it was going to be done soon. Super basic (borderline superficial) suggestions on how to live hygge.. which includes a lot of hot cocoa, candles, crocheting literally every item of clothing you own, and spending a lot of time having pleasant conversations.

    Cute I think that there is a lot to take out of this for people whom need to slow down and witness life. Many of the things in this book are great ideas and I by no means can dismiss this lifestyle. Much of it is appealing and good practice for mental health. That being said, there are somethings that I won’t give up. These things make me happy and thus would be counterproductive. Overall the book is cute and well read.

    I am Danish, and though I do recognise some traits and habits of “hygge” and Danish lifestyle described in the book, this is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. This is Danish culture described by a rich woman with a big house and an Instagram account to an American, who apparently lived in one of her tasteful guest rooms for a week, before he decided to write a book about her piles of blankets and closets full of socks. Honestly, if we drank as much cocoa by candle lights as the book cl I am Danish, and though I do recognise some traits and habits of “hygge” and Danish lifestyle described in the book, this is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read.

Honestly, if we drank as much cocoa by candle lights as the book claims, I would be twice as big and have severe asthma problems. The welfare data vary from “meh, not entirely correct” to “if that were true I would never work a day again in my life!”. (And finally have time for al that cocoa and cooking potatoes with my children).

    Enjoyable read I enjoyed this simple read, reminding you to enjoy the simple things in life and create a warm comfy lifestyle for yourself and loved one. Enjoyable read. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a comfort book to remind them to simplify their life and enjoy small moments as well as any moment we are given. Peaceful

    A tad bit irrelevant when you’re living in Asia Concepts of being present, minimalism and connecting with people are not new. By and large though, it is neither practical nor relevant when you’re living by the equator.

    Reads like an American version of Meik Wiking’s The Little Book of Hygge. It expanded a bit and gave me more ideas for how to implement hygge in my everyday life. For that reason, I would recommend this as a second read or third read on the topic of hygge.

    Lovely Little Introduction A great start for anyone interested in Hygge. Doesn’t ever go into incredible amounts of detail, which I suppose would be counterintuitive. I definitely recommend it for anyone looking to slow down and simplify their life.
