Ah 'happiness', the elusive concept mankind has been looking for since the dawn of time.  Now the Danish seem to finally have come up with a plausible answer to the question: 'what is happiness and how can I achieve it?'

Watch Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, talk about The Little Book of Lykke and reveal the six factors that contribute to a person's happiness.

  • The Little Book of Lykke

  • Lykke (Luu-kah) (n): Happiness

    It's easy to see why Denmark is often called the world's happiest country. Not only do they have equal parental leave for men and women, free higher education and trains that run on time, but they burn more candles per household than anywhere else.

    So nobody knows more about happiness - what the Danes call lykke - than Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and author of the bestselling sensation The Little Book of Hygge. But he believes that, whilst we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfilment, the keys to happiness are actually buried all around the globe.

    In this captivating book, he takes us on a treasure hunt to unlock the doors to inner fulfilment. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours and cook dinner, he gathers evidence, stories and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet. This is the ultimate guide to how we can all find a little more lykke in our lives.
