Are Norwegians Lazy?


For many Norwegians, work-life balance is incredibly important.

The ideal Norwegian optimizes both for efficiency and optimal relaxation time.

This is best described as working to live and not living to work.

The greater joy is taken in getting to the ski slopes

or just enjoying a quiet evening at home with some candles lit,

rather than working extra hours to advance in the workplace.


This sometimes causes Norwegians to be perceived as lazy which is not entirely accurate.
