‘Ikigai – The Japanese secret to a long & happy life’ By Héctor García & Francesc Miralles

Today’s big idea comes from Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, who wrote a very inspirational and warm book called ‘Ikigai – The Japanese secret to a long and happy life.’

Ikigai is a Japanese concept which Roughly translated means ‘the happiness of always being busy’. In the book, Garcia and Morales investigate ikigai and tries to find out exactly what it is and how you get it.

What they found is that Ikigai is the place where Your passion (what you love), Your mission (what you contribute), Your talent (What you have to offer the world), and Your profession (Your livelihood) converge. This book helps you bring together all of these elements to have a personal sense of meaning and enjoy a balanced life.

In a nutshell, the quickest path to a long and happy life is to adhere to a particular way of living based on these ten pieces of wisdom:

#1 Stay active, don’t Retire.

#2 Take it slow; go with the flow.

#3 Don’t fill your stomach.

#4 Nurture your friendships

#5 Get in shape.

#6 Smile.

#7 Reconnect with nature.

#8 Give thanks.

#9 Live in the moment.

#10 Follow your ikigai
