LIVING THE ‘LAGOM’ LIFESTYLE
The word LAGOM comes from the Swedish culture meaning Just the right amount. By this we mean just the right amount of work, food, leisure time and items in our home.
SO WHY LAGOM
In our lives nowadays we are slaves to consumerism and buy lots of items we don’t necessarily needed. We tend to fill our homes with objects we buy on impulse. Generally, we do this to make ourselves feel better, but does this really work? Do we just accumulate a lot of unwanted items?
HOW DOES LAGOM WORK
LAGOM teaches us to Stop and Think before we buy. Stop and Think before we take on more at work and Stop and Think before we eat. This creates space for us to evaluate many decisions in our lives. We learn to say - Do I really need this? Can I really do this?, Should I really eat this?. Helping us the understand and live a more balanced lifestyle.
HOW I USE LAGOM
I lived in Switzerland and Sweden for many years and both countries tend to live along the same guidelines. I love living a Healthy Outdoor Lifestyle and I enjoy a Clear Clean Living Environment. In my job as a Professional Organiser I help my clients understand the importance of Balance in their homes and lives. As many clients I meet tend to have a gross in-balance in this area. This in turn creates stress and anxiety in their lives. By choosing to live a more LAGOM lifestyle clients learn the value of everything in moderation meanwhile establishing a great sense of Life Work Balance.
COULD YOU USE A LITTLE LAGOM IN YOUR LIFE?
Why not give it a try? Start by cutting down on purchases and exchange them for experiences. Try saying no to extra work and concentrate on the job at hand Cut out things that don’t really make you happy Reduce the amount of time spent on non productive activities Free up more time for the things you want to do.
