Hygge has become a hot lifestyle trend, with a philosophy based on kindness to self, cherishing time with loved ones and finding a way to enjoy simple things.
Denmark is consistently ranked as the world’s happiest nation, and hygge is an integral part of the country’s culture.
Charlotte Abrahams, author of Hygge: A Celebration Of Simple Pleasures. Living The Danish Way (Orion, £20), will explain why she thinks these two things are connected, and share her thoughts on how focusing on simple pleasures can help us live more contented lives.
You will learn:
● How you can bring some hygge to your life without giving anything up or going on any sort of course
● How to think positively about your downtime so that you really notice it
● Why being kind to yourself and considering your own happiness is important, rather than self-indulgent
