Bring meaning and joy to all your days with the internationally bestselling guide to ikigai.
According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai--a reason for living. And according to the residents of the Japanese island of Okinawa--home to the world’s longest-living people--finding it is the key to a happier and longer life.
Inspiring and soothing, this book will bring you closer to these centenarians’ secrets: how they leave urgency behind; keep doing what they love for as long as possible; nurture friendships; live in the moment; participate in their communities; and throw themselves into their passions. And it provides practical tools to help you discover your own personal ikigai. Because who doesn’t want to find the joy in every day?
