One little word is the secret reminder of all that matters in life- Hygge. This Scandinavian concept, pronounced 'hue-guh', helps Denmark to be the happiest nation on earth. With no equivalent in English, this word describes a moment of happiness, warmth or togetherness, and is found in 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 S derberg's beautiful, authentic guide will show you that hygge is truly all around, if you know where to look. From home interiors to cooking, hygge touches all aspects of everyday 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 .

Very small print. Take a look before checking out if you can read. The library should have standards for legibility perhaps.
