Have you read any good books recently?

This book, "The Little Book of Hygge" by Meik Weiking was a PURE delight and joy to read.

I highly recommend it!

It is written by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Meik Wiking walks us through the philosophy of Hygge, the Danish secrets to happy living. 

Denmark is repeatedly at the top of the list for the world's happiest countries, so I was curious, what's the secret?!

What makes the Danes so happy?

Did you know that Social Support is the #1 factor that determines if people are happy?

Having someone you can turn to in a time of need is critically important for maintaining happiness. 

Who is that one person in your life?

Perhaps send them some love today, just a quick note to say you care?

It was so good, I wanted to share some of the key take aways with you.

I took some notes while reading because I wanted to practice the Hygge Manifesto. So I figured I'd share with you too!

Save Godzilla for xmas morning when you open presents and do yourself a favor by eating breakfast on Thursday.

[I didn't write this, but I like this.]

1. Make your bed.

The book The Happiness Project, explains that this three minute task is one of the simplest habits you can adopt to positively impact your happiness.

2. Bring every room back to “ready.”

I learned this trick from Marilyn Paul’s clever book, It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys. It’s a known fact: Clutter causes stress; order creates a haven from it. This mood-boosting routine is simple: Take about three minutes to bring each room back to “ready” before you depart it. (Unless you have a toddler, or a partner who likes to simulate earthquakes, three minutes should be sufficient.)

3. Display sentimental items around your home.

One reason that experiences (and memories of those experiences) make us happier than material things is due to the entire cycle of enjoyment that experiences provide: planning the experience, looking forward to the experience, enjoying the experience, and then remembering the experience. Mak...
