The Swedish Concept of Lagom
DIS – Study abroad in Scandinavia
“Not too much, not too little.” That’s the definition of the Swedish word lagom. It is not just a word though; lagom is a life approach.
Not too little. Not too much.
As Swedes, we seek to live in the moment
accepting and appriciating what we have.
We are content with moderation
and practice self-restraint in becoming too extravagant
and filling our lives with unnecessary things.
Lagom is a mindset
encompassing everything from valuing work-life balance
to taking just the right amount of cake for fika
to getting out of the urban busyness of the city
into nature in our day-to-day lives.
It’s a modest approach to life
but in our eyes, leads to a high standard of living.
