Hygge (loosely translated as "coziness") is centered around the idea of inviting comforting elements into day-to-day routines while creating warmth, community, and intimacy. The hygge life does more than just explain this philosophy, it teaches you how to apply hygge to all aspects of life throughout the year, from elevating your morning with perfectly brewed coffee to impromptu gatherings with family and friends to making an oasis at home, by offering ideas for decorating and self-care.

I had to wait a couple of months to get this book and let me tell you, it was worth the wait!

I definitely experienced the hygge life while reading this book. The recipes and the images brought me a lot of tranquility. It makes you think about your daily routines and how we don't really enjoy everything we do, such as drinking a coffee in the morning or taking a hike as indicated in the book. We are just so busy with our lives and wrapped up with other things that we don't take the time to appreciate the little things that can make our lives more enjoyable.

I think I experienced Hygge with this book. The photographs are warm and beautiful, the recipes sound so good. A great way to spend winter evenings.
