Product description


"Alexandra Amarotico's The Secret Joy of Hygge offers a cheerful antidote to the modern scourge of mindless consumption, laying out a philosophy of living that is both ebullient and accessible. Whether you want to remodel your life from the ground up or simply incorporate a few clever tricks for instant elevation, The Secret Joy of Hygge is a mirthful guide to a warmer life, a trove of practical advice and a recipe for making every occasion a special one."--Molly Young, author of D C-T!

"The ultimate guidebook for how to create a happy lifestyle. The Secret Joy of Hygge is a lighthearted, enjoyable, and breezy read that dives into practical ways to live well. I couldn't put it down, and am so excited to apply the practices to my own lifestyle!"--Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton, Founder of Chillhouse

"We often diminish the amount of power we have to truly create conditions that work best for us mentally, emotionally, and within our souls. The Secret Joy of Hygge is a quirky, sweet, and perfectly-timed reminder that there are many things we have power over which are right under our noses. As someone who has worked with leaders and people of influence all over the world, I've seen that the practice of hygge is what sets apart those that are truly joyful. This book serves as an important reminder that it is how YOU choose to narrate your own life that deepens the beauty of it." --Massella Dukuly, coach & leadership trainer

."My wife and I have always admired the Scandinavian commitment to design, food, comfort, self-care, ability to enjoy a mid-day coffee, and knowing when to power down their electronic devices to be present with the ones they love. Alexandra's book has given us the guidance and ambition to create our own hygge sanctuary in our lives--and within our Philadelphia home--through cozy clothes, comforting food, soft candlelight and, of course, coffee." --Joseph Marro, founder and artist manager of Lesser Matters, founder of Hello Donuts, board member of the Geographical Society of Philadelphia

"Hygge is an untranslatable Danish concept, but this book helps break it down in an accessible way. Whether you're trying to apply hygge to your home decor, how you entertain friends, or how to manage your career, Alexandra's practical advice helps you find easy ways to bring hygge into your everyday life."--Julia Chang, journalist and screenwriter

"The Secret Joy of Hygge offers a refreshing guide to managing our hectic, modern lives. It's a welcome reminder to be more present and grateful, and to find more joy and satisfaction in every single day."--Alexa von Tobel, author of Financially Fearless and Financially Forward
