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

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.

You will learn:

  • How you can bring some hygge to your life without giving anything up or going on any sort of 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, rather than self-indulgent
