Lagom: The Swedish Art Of Balanced Living by Linnea Dunne

Product Description

ABOUT THE BOOK


Step aside, Hygge. Lagom is the new Scandi lifestyle trend taking the world by storm. This delightfully illustrated book gives you the lowdown on this transformative approach to life. It examines how the Lagom ethos has helped boost Sweden's No.10 ranking in 2017's World Happiness Report. Lagom (pronounced 'lah-gom') has no equivalent in English but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right.' It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om,' for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle, and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag,' which means 'law.' Far from restrictive, Lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and the common good. By living Lagom, you can: Live a happier and more balanced life, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance. Free your home from clutter, enjoy good food the Swedish way. Grow your own, and learn to forage. Cherish the relationships with those you love.
