In The Hygge Life: Embracing the Nordic Art of Coziness Through Recipes, Entertaining, Decorating, Simple Rituals, and Family Traditions, by Gunnar Karl Gislason and Jody Eddy, it is stated that a Scandinavian winter is a lengthy and frosty affair. Hygge is their winter elixir.
Hygge is the notion that taking care of yourself and those you love fortifies you with an invincible sense of wellbeing that no amount of snow or endless twilight can temper.



In Summary

Starting the day
Developing a routine we can count on is one sure way to feel cozy the whole day through. For example, for breakfast and brunch, coffee and tea, an addictive little treat called "kleinur" and a few other recipes.

Caring for yourself
You can best nurture others when you have made moments for your own self.

Staying in
Preparing the weeknight meal together creates laughter and an easy sense of belonging. For children, it is a life skill.

Easy gatherings and holidays
Entertaining in a hyggeligt way focuses on the wellbeing of the people gathered together. It is not about luxurious dinners or extravagant decor, it is about simple, stress-free engagement and for guests to feel better than when they came in.

Getting out
Gardening is a rewarding project for everyone in the family, resulting in a bounty on your dinner table at the end of the season. Have an "open-sky" party also by entertaining guests outside.

Hygge is about creating a sanctuary of warmth and coziness that acts as a refuge for you and everyone you love, with having grace, simplicity and gratitude.

In Opinion

Gislason and Jody Eddy pointed out how children learning how to cook is a life skill as gardening is too. I could not agree more. My parents never taught me. I am a self-taught cook and still clueless to gardening. My family knows how to cook and all have green thumbs. I think having a refuge for you and your loved ones is so important. I think this book would be a good choice for someone getting the winter blues. Also, this book is nice for a parent with little ones needing a short book to read while the child is resting.

I give this book a 5-star rating.
