“Hygge and the Science of Happiness” is the topic of an online program presented through Sno-Isle Libraries from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10.
Join author Jody Eddy to learn the basic elements of hygge and discover real world examples for simple ways to introduce hygge into your life. Jody will also talk about the growing field of happiness science, a vast array of scientific study that explain why the elements of hygge make your mind, body and spirit feel so good. Eddy draws upon the work of Meik Wiking, who runs the Happiness Research Institute in Denmark and Laurie Santos, who teaches the happiness class at Yale, the most popular class ever to be taught in Yale’s history.
Hygge can be introduced into your own life no matter where you live or what season it is. Its warm and welcoming elements can be incorporated into everything from entertaining, wellness and self-care, caring for others, cooking, travel, decorating, vacations and staycations, work environment, routines, wardrobe, pets, gifts, and holidays and traditions.
