How to be Happy at Christmas

Happiness is a work in progress, always. Your attitude towards it is what will define your own personal happiness. It will also impact the happiness of others. Practice kindness and community with each other to help get the most out of life.

How to be Happy at Christmas

OK, this is really a very short book review, however it is for a book that I really think can help people become happier over the Holiday Season. The book is:

The Little Book of Hygge (

I cannot remember where I first came across this book. I think it was mentioned in some article on Flipboard that discussed happiness and causes of it. I'm pretty sure that must have been the same article where I leaned about the Yale class on The Science of Well-Being. That online class was free when I registered for it and I believe it remains free as an online course.

Back to the book. The Little Book of Hygge discusses a Danish philosophy. I will let the quote from the book describe it for me:

Embrace Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) and become happier with this definitive guide to the Danish philosophy of comfort, togetherness, and well-being.

The book is even better in audiobook format with the author, Meik Wiking, reading the book to you. His accent and speech pattern really do make the book content shine. You can find it on Hoopla:

There is also a companion book to it: The Little Book of Lykke (

Both books are excellent reads and definitely something that is nice to have around where you can pick it up, open and start reading to be reminded of some ways that you can improve your own, or someone else's happiness.

Give it a shot this holiday season!

Happy Holidays!
