How about bringing the lessons of therapy to bear in your everyday existence? Or discovering the Danish principle of Hygge?

1. Bigger Than Us by Fearne Cotton
Follow Fearne Cotton’s journey of discovery through personal stories and the help of world-renowned spiritualists and thought leaders. Down-to-earth and relatable, the book is divided into three universal lessons that we can all learn: love, awareness, and communication. This guide is for anyone seeking a path through their confusing lives and offers inspiration for tapping into the strength and comfort around us.
2. The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking
Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is Hygge. Loosely translated, Hygge–pronounced Hoo-ga–is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, Wiking explains. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe.
3. Yoga Happy by Hannah Barrett
Yoga Happy is an essential companion to help you through life, whether you’re a complete yoga beginner or wanting to deepen your home practice. No matter how little time or space you have, yoga instructor Hannah shows how you can find your energy, reduce stress at home or at work, get a good night’s sleep and learn to cope better with whatever life throws at you.
4. State Change by Robin Berzin
Too often, conventional medicine treats the body as separate from the mind, ignoring physical issues like chronic illness and weight gain. Science shows that these issues are oftentimes intricately entwined with mood issues like depression, anxiety, stress, and persistent fatigue. In State Change, Dr Berzin draws on cutting-edge research and her work with thousands of patients to tell the complete story of how our bodies drive our minds, mood, and energy levels.
5. Think Like a Therapist by Professor Stephen Joseph
Professor Joseph works with his clients to peel away the layers, find
something deeper behind their discontents, and identify new understandings of what really matters. These are often hard-earned
lessons that come at great cost. Drawing on his work over three decades he distils this vital knowledge for general readers and reveals how the secrets of enduring change are available to us all.
