A must-read for anyone who longs to live the Danish way!
Given the opportunity of a new life in rural Jutland, Helen Russell, former editor of Marie Claire magazine, discovered a startling statistic. Denmark, land of long dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries, was the happiest place on earth.
Keen to know their secrets, Helen gave herself a year to uncover the formula for Danish happiness.
From childcare, education, food and interior design to SAD and taxes, The Year of Living Danishly charts a woman's experiences of adjusting to a new way of life, her journey of self-discovery along the way and how we might all live a little more Danishly ourselves.
In this new edition, six years on, Helen reveals how her life and family have changed, and explores how Denmark, too - or her understanding of it - has shifted. It's a messy and flawed place, she concludes - but can still be a model for a better way of living.
