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:
Stay active; don’t retire
Take it slow
Don’t fill your stomach.
Surround yourself with good friends.
Get in shape for your next birthday.
Reconnect with nature
Live in the moment
Follow your ikigai.
