Review

"With each word illustrated by Yelena Bryksenkova, it's a pure joy to read." * Flow magazine *

Product Description

"In Hayes’ book, The Happiness Passport, she joins the dots between these differing beliefs to help us cultivate a richer shared vocabulary of happiness, and unravels the global interpretations of living well and contentedly." - Psychologies magazine

The Happiness Passport takes the reader on a journey around the world seeking out the secrets of wellbeing from cultures far and wide. 
 
There are wonderfully evocative words in this collection that resonate with universal emotions: the ability of the natural world to deeply move us as captured by the Japanese word yugen, or the overwhelming urge to cuddle an adorable pet described by the Philippine Tagalog gigil. Each concept is deeply ingrained in its place of origin: long, dark Danish days encourage the warmth and cosiness of hygge, while the satisfied chatter after a sun-soaked meal - sombremesa - resonates uniquely with Spanish hospitality. 
 
Let the Happiness Passport be your guide, examining the cultural context of each expression and the lessons that we can apply in our own lives to achieve greater contentment. A must-read for all those seeking a more balanced life, this beautiful guide features original illustrations that evoke each elusive expression.
