    Like the Danish term hygge, the Swedish lagom has no equivalent in the English language but can be loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. This book shows you how to love the lagom way of life.

    Sweden is one of the happiest nations on Earth and it's widely believed it comes from the Viking term 'laget om', which was said when mugs of mead were passed around in a circle so everyone just had a sip. A liberating concept that praises the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time, lagom is also inspired by the core belief of responsibility and common good.

    By following the lagom way of life, you can live happier, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance and free your home from clutter. It also encourages you to enjoy good food the Swedish way and cherish your loved ones.
