Join the happiness revolution! The author of the New York Times bestseller The Little Book of Hygge offers more inspiration and suggestions for achieving greater happiness, by practicing Lykke (LOO-ka)??pursuing and finding the good that exists in the world around us every day.

While the Danes are the happiest people on the planet, happiness isn't exclusively Danish; cultures around the world have their own unique approaches to leading a contented, fulfilled life. For his work at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik Wiking travels the globe from Dubai to Finland, Rio de Janeiro to Bhutan, South Korea to the United States, to discover the secrets of the very happiest people.

In The Little Book of Lykke, Meik identifies the six factors that explain the majority of differences in happiness across the world??togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust, and kindness??and explores what actions we can take to become happier. As he reveals, we can deepen our blissfulness and contentment with little adjustments in our behavior, whether it's eating like the French (sitting around a table and savoring our time) or dancing the tango like Argentinians in Buenos Aires.

With his trademark warmth and wit, Meik explores the happiness gap for parents, how much money you really need to buy happiness, how we can be healthier without having to go to the gym, how we can learn to build trust and collaboration, how we can help ourselves by helping others, and why our expectations often outweigh our reality. Weaving together original research and personal anecdotes, The Little Book of Lykke is a global roadmap for joy that offers a new approach to achieving everyday happiness that not only improve our own lives, but help us build better communities and a better wo… (mais)

Couldn't finish this book, because there was no acknowledgement that some people aren't able to do the suggested things.
The author recommends getting to know one's neighbors, but this presumes that one's neighbors are safe to be around. I can't get to know my own neighbors because a shocking number of them had pro-Trump signs in their yards in the last 4 years, and I am a queer disabled person. Many of my neighbors would not hesitate to cause my death.
He recommends offering to let your neighbors borrow your tools, but with no recognition that some people can't afford to replace them when someone else breaks it or loses it.

Don't get me wrong, I want to live in a world with organized neighborhoods, community gardens, tool libraries, etc. But we can't get there by ignoring that there are pre-requisites for a lot of us. ( )

Perhaps you're familiar with hygge (a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being), but do you know about lykke? By practicing the Danish concept of lykke (pronounced LOO-ka), which is about pursuing and finding the good that exists in the world around us, we can all become a little happier. This book examines six factors which impact happiness and shows how making small adjustments to our everyday behaviors can increase our blissfulness and contentment.

I loved this book! It was a quick, easy, and an humorous read, but one that nevertheless got me thinking. It has lots of different examples of small, easy-to-make changes (backed up my scientific studies) that can have a big impact on your life. And who doesn't want to be happier? ( )

This was a fun and feel good read. This book gives you scientific permission to hang out with your friends and eat great food! Play board games and meet your neighbors. Basically don't be a butt head and enjoy the life you've got. ( )

I'd read Wiking's Little Book of Hygge last year, and absolutely loved it; it was one of those right time/right books moments, and I took away a lot of good suggestions. So when this book's publication was announced, I kept an eye out for it.

In some ways, The Little Book of Lykke is a more interesting one; it's focused heavily on the research behind happiness both on an individual and cultural level. There are more studies cited, more graphs, more statistics, and case studies from around the globe about how people and communities have come together to create a better atmosphere for themselves and others. Wiking includes practical tips for the reader, but I don't think that's the book's strength; I think it serves as food for thought about the larger idea of what makes individuals and communities really happy, and the downstream benefits of being happy.

My only niggle against the book is that the last chapter ends a bit preachy. This is not entirely the author's fault, as the last chapter, entitled kindness was the chapter with the least amount of available stats and studies, so it was almost entirely anecdotal. It's really difficult to talk about being kind to others without sounding preachy, I get that. But it did leave the book ending weaker than it started by just a smidgen. Overall, a good book for inspiring introspection and an inspiring one in terms of new ideas. ( )

This is a book that you can sit down to read, or just read little sections at a time. It really gives some insightful information and insights (sorry for this sentence using repetitive sounding words, it’s too late at night to be creative). Some are things I’ve been aware of for quite some time, but it’s still nice to see how the author finds the connections the stories of people and culture around the world. Definitely a worthwhile read to give you hope about the world and small steps we can take to increase our personal happiness as well as to try and increase the happiness of those we encounter. ( )
