Living Lagom

There’s something special about this time of year - warmer weather, sunshowers, long evenings, fresh blooms. A time of eager anticipation and frantic preparation for the end of the year and everything that comes with it. It’s the perfect time to make some changes and start living lagom.

Pronounced “laaw-gum”, it is the Swedish approach to living in moderation. It is living in neither excess nor extreme limitation. Perfecting a balance of indulgence and restraint, lagom can be applied to every aspect of our lives.

Get into the Spring cleaning spirit and declutter your home lagom-style. Take a minimalistic approach, by removing anything that is unnecessary, impractical or unloved . Less is more.

As the Christmas shopping period begins, apply a quality over quantity approach. Set time aside to think of the perfect present rather than rushing out to the shops without a plan. Or better yet, save yourself from wasted time and unnecessary stress by shopping online.
