"Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life" is a non-fiction book that explores the concept of "ikigai," which translates to "reason for being" in English. The book is written by Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles, and it draws on interviews with Japanese people of different ages and backgrounds to uncover the secrets of a long, healthy, and fulfilling life.
The authors explore the intersection of four different elements - what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for - to help readers find their own "ikigai." By identifying this purpose in life, the authors argue that individuals can find greater meaning and happiness, as well as better health and longevity.
The book also delves into other aspects of Japanese cultures, such as the importance of mindfulness, healthy eating habits, and strong social connections. Through these different lenses, "Ikigai" offers readers a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to live a long and happy life, based on the wisdom of the Japanese people.
