Niksen

Embracing The Dutch Art of Doing Nothing

‘Niksen’ is the book on the Dutch art of doing nothing, by expert Olga Mecking. Mecking’s research on niksen and her articles in various international media such as ‘The New York Times’ brought worldwide fame to this Dutch way of life.

When was the last time you did absolutely nothing (no, not watch TV or read a book. Nothing)?

In ‘Niksen’ you’ll learn how doing nothing can make you more creative, more relaxed and even healthier and happier. Learn to live like the Dutch, some of the happiest people on earth, and let doing nothing become part of your daily life. You’ll soon find that Niksen is not a luxury, but a necessity.

In a world that expects us to constantly deliver output, niksen, the Dutch art of doing nothing, is not as easy as it sounds. We are almost always busy doing something. But even if you lead a very hectic life, it is possible to find time to niks: at home, at work and even on the road! ‘Niksen’ will show you how.

If your life is busy and stressed, this book is for you. ‘Niksen’ will give you the tools you need to deal with daily challenges and will help you become you happier and more productive while kicking back and letting go of everything. Mecking brings humor, insight and expert opinions together to prove that a bit of nothing can be liberating. ‘Niksen’ is guaranteed to turn you into quite the idler.

Niksen has received praise from various international media:

‘This Dutch concept is as simple as, well, doing nothing.’ – Time Magazine

‘Niksen is great for people who find meditation frustrating.’ – NBC News

‘Stop being so busy.’ – NY Times
‘Olga Mecking put the Dutch phenomenon Niksen on the international map.’ - de Volkskrant
