What’s your ikigai? Your reason for being?
On the Island of Okinawa in Southern Japan people have the longest life expectancy in Japan, which already boasts the second highest life expectancy in the world. Whilst diet plays a large part in this, the mindset of the Okinawan people and their ikigai gets credit.
Your ikigai will help you combine your passions, skills, experiences, and desires into a purpose that you can use to drive yourself forward.
Written by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, both best-selling authors and lovers of Japan.
