IKIGAI BY HECTOR GARCIA & FRANCESE MIRALLES
In Japanese, Ikigai is made by combining the two words that mean “life” with “to be worthwhile.” So overall it means, “Life which is worthwhile.”
We all have our own Ikigai hidden inside of us. One thing we have in common is that we are all searching for meaning. When we spend our days feeling connected to what is meaningful to us, we live more fully; when we lose the connection, we feel despair.
Once you have discovered your Ikigai, nurturing it and pursuing it with full heart and mind will give your life meaning and make it more purposeful.
The book covers several Japanese ways of living or “art of living” techniques. It shares the secrets of the longevity of popular Okinawa town people.
