Often dubbed as the world's happiest man, Meik Wiking introduces the Danish philosophy of hygge—happiness found in the sense of being one with others, being at home, and being where you truly belong.

Wiking is the CEO of Copenhagen's Happiness Research Institute, and in The Little Book of Hygge, he shares that Danes are the happiest nation in the world because of one centuries-old, time-tested concept: hygge. Pronounced "hoo-ga", hygge is both the experience and the atmosphere of coziness, togetherness, and safety.

Hygge is the warmth of the morning sun against your skin under the breezy blue sky. It is enjoying a great meal by candlelight with your loved one. It is burrowing underneath a warm blanket with a cup of hot drink in one hand and a lovely book in the other, dry and safe from the perils of the ruthless storm outside.

Wiking's The Little Book of Hygge reveals the vital element entrenched in the Danish lifestyle and culture. It also offers instructions in integrating it into your own life:

  • Take a breather and snuggle up.

  • Look away from your phone and into the present.

  • Dim the lights and set the candles.

  • Establish and improve relationships.

  • Nothing says hygge as a sweet slice of cake or a piece of warm cookie.

  • Live in the now. There is no other time like the present.

    From setting the mood with the right lighting to organizing a hygge gathering, Meik Wiking reveals how the Danes find life's greatest pleasures even in the little things so you can too.
