Description

IKIGAI: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life” is a book co-authored by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles. In this book, García and Miralles explore the concept of “ikigai,” a Japanese term that roughly translates to “a reason for being” or “a reason to wake up in the morning.” Drawing on Japanese philosophy and culture, the authors delve into the principles behind ikigai and how it can lead to a fulfilling and meaningful life.

The book discusses the intersection of four elements that contribute to one’s ikigai: what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for. By finding the balance between these elements, individuals can discover their purpose and live a life of fulfillment and contentment.

Throughout the book, García and Miralles share insights from interviews with residents of the Japanese island of Okinawa, known for its high number of centenarians and strong sense of community. They explore how the principles of ikigai are woven into the fabric of Okinawan culture, influencing everything from diet and exercise to social connections and lifelong learning.
