Perfect for fans of THE LITTLE BOOK OF HYGGE and NORWEGIAN WOOD, find the balance in life that is just right for you.
As the Swedish proverb goes, 'Lagom ar bast' (The right amount is best). Lagom sums up the Swedish psyche and is the reason why Sweden is one of the happiest countries in the world with a healthy work-life balance and high standards of living.
Lagom is a way of living that promotes harmony. It celebrates fairness, moderation and being satisfied with what you've got. It's not about having too little or too much but about fully inviting contentment into our lives.
Sweden-based Lola A. Akerstrom is an award-winning writer and photographer who offers us a unique vantage point when it comes to adopting elements of a lagom lifestyle.
Full of insights and beautiful photographs, this authentic guide will help you make small, simple changes to your every day life - whether that's your diet, lifestyle, money, work or your home - so you can have a happier, more balanced way of living.
