3 Ways To Achieve Swedish Lagom At Home & Life
Lagom is a Swedish concept that translates to "just enough" or "just the right amount," and it's all about finding balance and moderation in your life. It's about finding a sweet spot where you're not overdoing or underdoing anything, but rather finding a happy medium that works for you.
Here are some tips for achieving lagom at home:
Declutter and simplify
One key to achieving lagom at home is to get rid of excess and focus on what's truly important to you. Take the time to declutter your home and get rid of anything that you don't use or need. This can help you create a more peaceful and relaxing environment.
Useful tips, that will help you to declutter:
If you're feeling overwhelmed by all of the stuff in your house - try starting small. Make a list of everything that's currently cluttering up your life, then prioritize it based on what you will actually use. You might be surprised at how many things make it onto this list!

Once you've narrowed down your list, go through each item and decide if it belongs in your life with or without modification. If there are items that can still be useful but don't fit into your current lifestyle, consider donating them so they can find a new owner who will put them to good use. If there are items on this list that have no real value or worth for anyone else either then trash them!
Keep your home free of unnecessarily items

You can achieve lagom at home by embracing the concept of "enough" and keeping your surfaces and home itself spacious. You can do it by moving unnecessary items out of sight or removing them altogether. You can also keep home spaces clear by making sure you don't have any extra furniture that isn't being used in a room, as this can create a cluttered look where there shouldn't be one.

Find joy in the simple things
Finding joy in the simple things is an important part of living a lagom life. Think about the things that bring you happiness and fulfillment, and make time for them. This could be reading a good book, cooking a favorite meal, or spending time with loved ones.

You don't need to go on extravagant vacations or buy expensive things to feel fulfilled—you can find joy in your own home. When you're feeling stressed out or overwhelmed, try taking a break and doing something that brings you happiness. Maybe it's reading a good book, cooking a favorite meal, or spending time with loved ones.

You might feel like you're too busy to make time for these things, but they're important! Make time for yourself—you deserve it.
Slow down and be present
One key to enjoying the simple things in life is to slow down and be present in the moment. This means setting aside time for relaxation and enjoyment and letting go of distractions like phones, screens, and other things that take your attention away from what’s happening right now.

Being present doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult. It can be as easy as sitting on the couch with your loved one and reading a book together, going for a walk without your phone in hand, or curling up with a cup of tea and a good book.
By following these tips and making an effort to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life, you can find joy and fulfillment at home. Remember to take the time to do the things you love and enjoy, and let go of the things that don't bring you joy or fulfillment.
