Ikigai – The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life by Francesc Miralles and Hector Garcia

All things considered, people don't need to live 100 years. However, everybody needs to live their day-to-day existence with happiness and satisfaction. The book Ikigai – The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life explains strategies to discover a reason to jump out of bed every morning.


The authors needed to track down the significance of Ikigai exhaustively and thus chose to visit Okinawa, the island with the most centenarians in the world. They have realised their Ikigai, which means 'a reason to jump out of bed each morning'!


Ikigai is a blend of what you love, what you're exceptional at, what are your necessities, and what you can be paid for. A compound of your passion, profession, mission, and get-away. I began the book with the motivation of perusing, but it took me on a journey to find insights on satisfaction. One can have various modest purposes that aggregate to a single mission.


What we should do, is rely on our instinct and do things that satisfy us. It may be as large as an incredible innovation or as straightforward as conversing with somebody. What makes a difference is genuine feelings of serenity. This book is a necessary read for every individual; to discover their Ikigai, or simply to inspire and motivate.
