As someone who has suffered from Seasonal Affective Disorder her whole life long before it had a name the idea of actually looking forward to winter is almost alien to me However in my desperation for anything to improve my spirits during these dark months I wanted to explore the concept of hygge This book is exactly what I was looking forThe Scandinavians have learned over the centuries of very dark winters how to not only survive but to thrive And it all begins with taking care of one’s self and caring for others actively finding making comfort in everything one does It’s much than interior decorating cozy fires or fuzzy socks Rather it’s a purposeful communion of spirits in pursuit of that caring for and comforting one another This book contains gorgeous photography warm explanations of background and philosophy and several recipes of Scandinavian comfort food I can see why hygge is becoming an international sensationMaybe by implementing some of these suggestions and rituals I hope to be able to combat the winter blues better this year I gratefully received this book as an eARC from the author publisher and NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review
