What is Lagom?

Do you really know?

What is Lagom? Thanks for asking!

The Swedish term lagom is one of those words that doesn’t have an exact equivalent in English, yet it has caught on as a wellness trend. If you had to translate it, you’d probably go with something like “just the right amount” or “according to common sense.”

It’s kind of similar to the expression “less is more” in intention, used as a contrast to the idea that more is always better. It is often used with regards to the world of work and the much-hyped work-life balance everyone craves these days.

Where does the idea of lagom come from? How does that translate into work/life balance? Are there any downsides? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
