How the Danish stay so happy
In Hygge: Comfort & Food For The Soul, on page 7, CookNation states that hygge can be described as cozy, comfort, content, bliss, happiness, warmth, friendship, family, gratitude and appreciation of simplicity. The authors then go on to include that there is no stress or worry.
The Danish are some of the happiest people in the world. What are some of their secrets?
Some tips include:
Have some cake. A nice detour from worrying about your weight. Eat the cake and like it!
Make cinnamon porridge recipe This recipe is thick, sweet and filling. Furthermore, good to savor early in the morning.
Ready-for-tea shortbread recipe This recipe is a classic with cups of tea.
Cheese scones recipe This recipe is good to have for guests.
Salted caramel hot chocolate recipe
This recipe is the ultimate hygge! The authors even suggest having a straw when drinking.
Lie back with warm blankets and take in the stars.
Much of the book pertains to comfort food. Again, there is the word "comfort" which is all about hygge.
CookNation's book is easy to follow. The book happens to be short, sweet and to the point. Often, "hygge" is a hard concept, but the authors made the book easy to understand.
If a person suffers from the winter blues, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or just tired of being indoors due to the coronavirus, I would suggest buying this book.
