Hygge, happiness, and a dark side

You might have seen or heard about the "hygge", a Danish and Norwegian word that's getting a lot of attention these days. Hygge (pronouced hoo-ga) loosely translates to coziness

I read Meiki Wiking's book, The little book of hygge: Danish secrets to happy living, a few months ago and really enjoyed it. 

Wiking's 2016 TED talk takes us a bit further into happiness, by talking about it's dark side: suicide. He highlights research suggesting that all this talk about happiness, could actually make us unhappy. See what you think. It's intrigued me enough to read more about the flip side of happiness.
