Lagom for Work-Life Balance: 4 Tips for Harmonizing Your Life

Imagine a life where you're neither overwhelmed by excess nor hustled. It is the heart of Lagom, a Swedish philosophy that encapsulates the concept of work-life balance through moderation. Join us as we delve into three tips for applying Lagom to your life to achieve a balanced and sustainable life.

1. Applying Lagom principles for work-life balance

Dreaming of that perfect work-life balance? You’re not alone! However, getting there can be challenging. That’s where Lagom steps in, with its “just enough” philosophy that’s a perfect fit for our busy lives. Lagom encourages us to apply this by prioritizing tasks and setting aside time for work and relaxation.

The balanced workspace concept is also at the core of Lagom, as it promotes an environment that's neither cluttered nor sterile – just right for fostering productivity and well-being.

2. Implementing self-care for sustainable well-being

Who doesn't love the idea of indulging themselves? At its essence, self-care is an ingredient for maintaining a work-life balance and an energy charger to set the tone for what lies ahead. Let's explore some Lagom-inspired self-care tips to nourish ourselves:

  • Set a morning routine for a soothing skincare regimen or a mood-enhancing shower in the bathroom.

  • Create a positive tone for a busy day through a simple yet fulfilling breakfast meal: a slice of bread and a cup of coffee.

  • Take a pause during the day to weave mindfulness and gratitude by practicing meditation or journaling - managing a work-life balance perspective amid chaos.
