Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life, as the title indicates, uncovers the Japanese secrets to living a long and happy life. Ikigai is a Japanese term that translates to “the joy of continuously being occupied.” Ikigai is formed by combining the symbols iki (life) and gai (worthwhileness).

This book states that the Japanese Ikigai holds the key to living a long and healthy life with the joy of continually being busy. The book Ikigai inspires everyone to find their own ikigai, which is essentially the job that you enjoy, which rewards well, work you’re skilled at, and improves the world. A job that works as your profession, passion, mission, and purpose all at once.

Follow your Ikigai

This involves discovering and pursuing your passion. If one works without passion, according to this book, will simply be a job that will never satisfy us, and there will come a point when we feel like our life isn’t good enough and start comparing ourselves to others.

Doing what you love will satisfy your soul and keep you from feeling lost. Ten rules of Ikigai are Stay active; Don’t retire, Take it slow, Don’t fill your stomach, Surround yourself with good friends, Get in shape for your next birthday, Smile, Reconnect with nature, Give thanks, Live in the moment, and Follow your Ikigai.
