Living Lagom – Breathing from Within

Lagom – Not too little, not too much. Just right. 

I’m genuinely excited to write this blogpost for you guys today, for a few different reasons. First of all, I get to write about lagom, which the internet is currently going nuts about. Secondly, I’m obsessed with the brand I’d like to introduce you to and I’ll be working the rest of the year. And thirdly, I love the campaign behind the products and shot some amazing photos, all of which makes me one happy blogger right now.

When you’re a serial youtube, instagram or blog junkie like I am, you’ve probably heard about lagom already. Lagom (“The right amount” or “Not too little, not too much. Just right.”) is all about living a more minimal life and is considered as a lifestyle trend. Yet, whether it’s trendy or not is unimportant to me. I personally love to be reminded of balance in life and not to get soaked up in stress and busy schedules. To be honest, living lagom does not come very naturally to me. I’m the kind of person that is always busy and inherently chooses to be so. Working, studying, blogging, meeting friends, hosting family dinners and trying to be “mrs. everything & everyone” can be quite exhausting. However, as much as I like being ambitious and busy, I know I need to make time for my body and soul to come to rest, too.

Living lagom thus reminds me of living the present to the fullest and looking out for resting moments in my daily life. I never understood the concept of people working their a**** of during the whole year and desperately longing for an ajurvedic retreat once Christmas is over. Lagom to me means never getting to that point where you actually need to take vacation from your daily life. Instead, trying to improve your daily life in a way that lets you breathe from within.

keeping up with our motto #itsallaboutyou 🙌🏻 today! already had my favourite breakfast this morning (see stooooory) whilst reading some papers on strategic uncertainty for my thesis... love chilled mornings like these😻 also having my parents over for dinner tonight... what should i cook 😵😂?! #ad #aboutyoustyle
while last year was all about finding a job, moving out and finishing my bachelor degree (actually neatly wrote this down on a piece of paper on new year’s eve 2017), this year i really want to focus on me as a person rather than me as my accomplishments. don’t get me wrong, it does feel great to accomplish things, but the truth is,  certificates, possessions or the number of photos you were able to take around the 🌍 will obviously never truly lead to any sort of satisfaction. at the end of the day, it’s all about you as a person, including all your weird angles, traits and habits. who‘s with me?
