Summary
  • "Bring meaning and joy to all your days with this internationally bestselling guide to the Japanese concept of ikigai -- the happiness of always being busy -- as revealed by the daily habits of the world's longest-living people." -- From Amazon.com summary
  • "...In researching this book, the authors interviewed the residents of the Japanese village with the highest percentage of 100-year-olds -- one of the world's Blue Zones. Ikigai reveals the secrets of their longevity and happiness : how they eat, how they move, how they work, how they foster collaboration and community, and -- their best-kept secret-- how they find the ikigai that brings satisfaction to their lives. And it provides practical tools to help you discover your own ikigai..."--Dust jacket
