Episode Summary

This week on Tea & Tattle podcast, Sophie and I are discussing the Swedish term, lagom, meaning 'just the right amount,' and how we can use the Scandinavian principle of living in balance to lead happier and healthier lives ourselves.

The modern world feels an increasingly chaotic and time-pressured place in which to live, and we examine how adopting a lagom approach to work and health may help us to identify our priorities and lead a less stressed existence.

Listen to learn more about the Swedish way of living and how to find more balance in your life.
