Step aside Hygge. Lagom is the new Scandi lifestyle trend taking the world by storm. This delightfully illustrated book gives you the lowdown on this transformative approach to life and examines how the lagom ethos has helped boost Sweden to the No.10 ranking in 2017's World Happiness Report. Lagom (pronounced 'lah-gom') has no equivalent in the English language but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om', for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag', which means 'law'. Far from restrictive, lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and common good. By living lagom you can: Live a happier and more balanced life Reduce your environmental impact Improve your work-life balance Free your home from clutter Enjoy good food the Swedish way Grow your own and learn to forage Cherish the relationships with those you love

In a fast-paced world, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could slow down and enjoy a life with less pressure, less stress, and more time for the things you love? Sweden is ranked in the top three of the world’s happiest places to live, and lagom, which means “not too much and not too little—just right,” is the Swedish philosophy for enjoying balance in every aspect of life—from work and leisure to family and food, and everything in between. Experienced bakers know by touch when the dough they are kneading is lagom—not too moist and not too dry. At the office, professionals who work hard—but not to the detriment of other parts of their lives—are following the lagom ideal. Lagom is moderation, balance, and equality. By using the Swedish lifestyle as an example, Niki Brantmark offers insightful suggestions and bite-sized actions to help you make subtle changes to your life, so you too can make time for the things that matter most and find greater happiness.

Scandinavia sets the course for happiness in life again. Yesterday, we followed the trends of the Danish hygge and, like Danes, bought candles, wrapped ourselves in woolen blankets and tried not to deny ourselves little pleasures. But there are other recipes for happiness and long life. Swedish lagom, Norwegian friluftsliv and Japanese Ikigai also deserve attention. Today, hygge is being replaced by lagom, where at the head of everything is the Swedish aesthetics of moderation. The creative director of the British magazine Lagom, Elliot Stokes, believes that the difference between lagom and hygge is in the scale. "This is a comprehensive concept that defines a lifetime," he explains. "It's not about finding a minute for the lagom. It is necessary to change the attitude towards life in its entirety."Swedes are reasonable, they think well before investing money in any purchase, are endowed with a careful attitude towards the natural resources. They value their time and energy and do not spend it on something unnecessary. In life, the Swedish descendants of the Vikings try to adhere to the happy medium: it's bad when a person is missing something but having too much of something is also not good. Yes, we do not live in Sweden, but everyone can add lagom to their lives. In this book, we will cover the following topics: What is Lagom?, Lagom Lifestyle, and Lagom and Swedish Wellbeing. Finally, you will be able to complete a 30-Day Lagom Challenge, bringing more and more lagom into your life with each task you complete.

Lagom: n. just the right amount, balanced, harmonious. This beautiful, fresh cookbook offers genuine insight into how Swedes eat and cook – with recipes that fit around the seasons, occasions, times of day, and appetite. Eating and cooking in tune with 'lagom' means embracing food that is good for body and soul, unfussy, delicious and sustaining, and all in harmony. The Swedes understand that balance is everything – that you crave comforting food when a bitter wind is howling outside, that refreshing, lighter meals suit hot, hazy days, that a mid-morning bun is good for morale, and that a long, sociable lunch with friends and family on a Sunday is the most rewarding way to end the weekend.

Designed to help you sustain wellbeing and overcome stressful times and events, the advice in The Art of Balanced Living is based on the body-typing system of Ayurveda, India's traditional system of healing. Such elements of Ayurveda as yoga and meditation are well known. However, fewer people know about the body type diet and how it affects physical, emotional and mental health. The three body types, or doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, reflect and affect everything from the health of our skin to the state of our finances. This book uses Ayurvedic medicine to answer questions such as Why can't I lose that last bit of weight? Why is digestion so sensitive to raw food? Why do I get angry so quickly when others seem so relaxed? Why can't I tolerate hot spices? It also contains recipes and personal stories from people whose lives have changed after implementing the body-type diet.
