Ikigai

I stumbled upon the concept “Ikigai” and really loved the whole idea of it.

“Ikigai” is a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being".

In the book -  Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life..

One hundred centenarians and supercentenarians in Ogimi, Okinawa were interviewed to understand their philosophy and secrets of longevity - the authors developed their ten rules of ikigai to:


  1. Stay active; don’t retire

  2. Take it slow

  3. Don’t fill your stomach.

  4. Surround yourself with good friends.

  5. Get in shape for your next birthday.

  6. Smile.

  7. Reconnect with nature

  8. Give thanks.

  9. Live in the moment

  10. Follow your ikigai.
