Lagom, The Art of ‘Just Enough’

I intend to make this one of my topics for next month on the SEFEO English community, which I joined in February of this year. This will be an interesting topic for people in general, as it is about living a moderate life, which I believe many, if not all, people aspire to.

If you’re reading this, here are two short YouTube videos and a good article to get you started. If you’re interested, feel free to explore more about lagom online.
