Embrace Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) and become happier with this definitive guide to the Danish philosophy of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is hygge. Loosely translated, hygge - pronounced hoo-ga - is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. ´´Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience,´´ Wiking explains. ´´It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe.´´ Hygge is the sensation you get when you´re cuddled up on a sofa, in cozy socks under a soft throw, during a storm. It´s that feeling when you´re sharing comfort food and easy conversation with loved ones at a candlelit table. It is the warmth of morning light shining just right on a crisp blue-sky day. The Little Book of Hygge introduces you to this cornerstone of Danish life and offers advice and ideas on incorporating it into your own life, such as: Get comfy. Take a break. Be here now. Turn off the phones. Turn down the lights. Bring out the candles. Build relationships. Spend time with your tribe. Give yourself a break from the demands of healthy living. Cake is most definitely hygge. Live life today, like there is no coffee tomorrow. From picking the right lighting to organizing a hygge get-together to dressing hygge, Wiking shows you how to experience more joy and contentment the Danish way. 1. Language: English.

Today, it is difficult to imagine a living room without a sofa. When the first sofas on record were delivered in 17th-century France, the result was a radical reinvention of interior space. Symptomatic of a new age of casualness and comfort, the sofa ushered in an era known as the golden age of conversation; as the first piece of furniture designed for two, it was also considered an invitation to seduction. With the sofa came many other changes in interior space we now take for granted: private bedrooms, bathrooms, and the original living rooms. None of this could have happened without a colorful cast of visionaries-legendary architects, the first interior designers, and the women who shaped the tastes of two successive kings of France: Louis XIV´s mistress Madame de Maintenon and Louis XV´s mistress Madame de Pompadour. Their revolutionary ideas would have a direct influence on realms outside the home, from clothing to literature and gender relations, changing the way people lived and related to one another for the foreseeable future. 1.

I sat down on the living room sofa and took a bite of some homemade pie. I had gathered the sweet and tart blackberries last summer and was now enjoying a pie that only cost a dollar to make. Then I remembered to say prayer of thanksgiving and bowed my head. I often remember to say a brief prayer before and after three meals and two snacks a day. Someone might ask, ´´Why all the prayer?´´ I pray a minimum of 10 times a day because it is the right thing to do, and it does incredibly good things to me. I pray at other times and other ways; however, prayers of thanksgiving seem to be among the most powerful, for effective and happy living. Here is my story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marlene C.

Ten reasons why you should never save up your dreams for tomorrow! Don´t wait! Why? Because your dreams begin with one solitary thought - at least one unfinished dream thought will enter your mind as you are listening to this audiobook. Because Ralphie didn’t and neither should you. Because material things don’t last, only love does. Because you will never be ready if you keep getting ready to get ready. Because the clock keeps ticking no matter what your intentions. If you have enough money to pay your monthly bills and insurance for sickness, go take that trip because you only have a certain window of time where you are physically able to travel and the one that you want to travel with, is available. Because someone needs your help and you can help them when you have extra to give. Are you wasting precious time on worthless activities that won’t bring long-lasting gain of any real kind? Stop living on the sofa of regret and get back out there. Drop it in the bucket and leave it there. Because you only have right now, not tomorrow.Because no one can do it just like you can. Because you are living your life right now and one day the sands of time will run out. All my best! Kristie 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brittany Goodwin.
