 Exploring Hygge: Celebrating the Simple Pleasures in Life

Hygge has become a hot lifestyle trend, with a philosophy based on kindness to self, cherishing time with loved ones and finding ways to enjoy simple things. Denmark is consistently ranked as the world’s happiest nation, and hygge is an integral part of its culture. Charlotte Abrahams, author of Hygge: A Celebration Of Simple Pleasures. Living The Danish Way, will explain why she thinks happiness and hygge are connected, and share her thoughts on how focusing on uncomplicated joys can help us live more contented lives.

You will learn:

How to bring hygge into your life without giving up anything or taking a course
How to think positively about your downtime, so that you really notice it
Why being kind to yourself and considering your own happiness is important, and not self-indulgent

Charlotte Abrahams is a highly respected writer, editor and curator, specialising in design and the applied arts. She trained at Central St Martins and has written features, columns and profiles for national newspapers and magazines.
