How to Hygge: Nordic Secrets to a Happy Life by Signe Johansen


Discover the secrets of hygge: where coziness, warmth, and community is key.

The “Danish coziness” philosophy is fast becoming the new “French living” in terms of aspirational lifestyle books and blogs. Countless viral articles are comparing the happiness levels of Americans versus Danes. Their homes are homier; their people are more cheerful. It’s an attitude that defies the definition, but there is a name for this slow-moving, stress-free mindset: hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”). Hygge values the idea of cherishing yourself: candlelight, bakeries, and dinner with friends; celebrating experiences over possessions, being kind to yourself, and treasuring a sense of community.

How to Hygge by chef and author Signe Johansen is a fresh, informative, lighthearted, fully illustrated how-to guide to hygge. It combines recipes and helpful tips for cozy living at home.

Signe Johansen is a writer and cook who grew up in Norway.
