Writer Isabel Gillies takes the art of hygge to new heights by making coziness an action and not merely the objects you surround yourself with in this charming book.

From the back cover:

When we talk about being cozy, most of us think of a favorite sweater or a steaming cup of tea on a rainy afternoon. But to Isabel Gillies, coziness goes beyond mere objects. To be truly cozy Gillies believes, it's essential to identify the truth of who you are and carriy it with you into your day, no matter the environment.

Gillies has mastered the art and subtle beauty of creating spaces where you feel safe, steady, and at home in your corner of the world. From old family recipes to subway rides, from jury duty to hospital stays, Gillies picks up where hygge leaves off, showing readers that true coziness stems not only from throw pillows but from seizing opportunities to feel that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. If you capitalize on simple choices, you can make a hectic life or an uncomfortable situation more than just bearable.

This wise, necessary book is a call to action for each of us to seek out those often-missed chances to create a world for ourselves where we feel safe, delighted even, when life is hard.
