131: Making your home happier with happiness researcher Meik Wiking

Not Perfect Podcast with Poppy Jamie

On today's episode, my guest is the awe inspiring Meik Wiking. Meik founded the world's first Happiness Research Institute in 2013 in Copenhagen to better understand the impacts on human happiness, inform policymakers and ultimately improve overall quality of life for citizens across the world. The research combines qualitative and quantitative methods, studying thousands of people from multiple countries to provide insights on the level of well-being, happiness and quality of life. Meik is now the author of four books which have sold in 39 territories worldwide. Mike's first book, The Little Book of Hygge was an international New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller with over a million copies sold worldwide. Today we are going to be speaking about happiness and his latest book which was released earlier this week, My Hygge Home. As we're spending more time in our homes it's important that we realise the huge impact and influence it has over the way we feel. In this conversation, Meik answers the questions: 'Can our homes make us happier? Can we design for better well-being? And is it possible to create better homes where we not only live, but we thrive?' .

Happy Place

Some elements of happiness are circumstantial – where we’re born, and our biology – but there are many elements that we personally have control over. Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, based in Denmark, and he feels we’d all be happier if we focused more on the smaller choices we can control. That, he explains, is where the Danish art of hygge comes in.In this chat with Fearne, Meik explores why policy makers would do well to consider the happiness of their country as an important element of national health – happy citizens are more likely to earn more, less likely need the health service, and more likely to perform random acts of kindness.Meik’s books, The Little Book of Hygge, The Little Book of Lykke, and The Art of Making Memories are all out now.Thanks to Stripe and Stare for sponsoring this series of Happy Place.
