    This book has nothing to do with Ikigai. Honestly it should've been titled How to Live a Long Life like an Okinawan.

    I'm so disappointed. I thought this would be an amazing book but actually it's a mess. I could see what the authors were trying to do but they could have done it in 40 pages or less. There were some contradictory thoughts, not to mention the amount of times the same ideia was repeated over and over. Most of the times the graphics were completely unnecessary, as the text is super simple and easy to understand. Also, the amount of information about techniques and breathing exercises seemed as if t ...more

    Δεν ξέρω αν διαβάζοντας κανείς αυτό το βιβλίο θα βγει πολύ σοφότερος, δηλαδή δε νομίζω ότι προσθέτει πραγματικά πολλές καινούριες πληροφορίες για μια πιο ευτυχισμένη ζωή που μέχρι τώρα δε γνωρίζαμε και προφανώς δε νομίζω ότι πρέπει να αρχίσουμε να τρώμε φύκια όπως αναγράφεται για καλύτερη ποιότητα ζωής, όμως πιστεύω ότι δεν είναι ποτέ κακό να ξαναβλέπεις γραπτά κάποια πράγματα που ήδη τα γνωρίζεις και είναι και για σένα κοινώς αποδεκτά συστατικά μιας ευτυχισμένης ζωής. Σε αυτό το κομμάτι προσωπι ...more

    Ik kreeg deze als cadeautje van de lieve Luna van @leesdame en heb het boek binnen een dag uitgelezen. De rode draad van het boek is oud worden door bezig te blijven, maar het gaat veel verder dan dat. Waar ik nog het meest van kan leren is de les; concentreer je op één ding tegelijk.

    Er zijn echter heel veel manieren waarop je de lessen uit dit boek kunt toepassen. Luna schreef er al een hele mooie recensie over waaruit je precies goed op kunt maken hoe waardevol dit boek is. Zeker even lezen du

    I kind of feel bad panning this book, because I think helping people find their ikigai -- or their purpose in life -- is a worthwhile goal.

    The problem is, I have to think that the author and his publisher know that this book doesn't come anywhere close to achieving that goal.

    Instead, this book is a jumbled mess. It borrows heavily from the work of others, from Victor Frankl to the guys studying flow states, slaps on a thin veneer of received wisdom from Japanese octogenarians and attempts to pas

    zn. nut van het leven


    Ik weet niet precies wat ik van dit boek vond.. Aan de ene kant vond ik het heel erg leuk en zaten er echt goede lessen in, maar aan de andere kant vond ik het soms enorm zweverig.. Maar misschien komt dat ook wel doordat ik helemaal niks heb met energiestromen door je lichaam enzo.

    Dat dorpje met zoveel 100-jarigen vond ik wel erg inspirerend! Mooie adviezen gaven die mensen ook in de interviews die in dit boek zijn weergegeven.

    I literally inhaled this book. Ikigai is a beautiful book about Japanese culture and discusses the secret to a long and happy life. If you're interested in Japanese culture and self-development this gorgeous book is for you. Just reading this had a calm and centering effect on me. "Happiness is always determined by your heart." 💙

    Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life

    Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being." It is similar to the French phrase Raison d'être. Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is important to the cultural belief that discovering one's ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life. Examples include work, hobbies and raising children.

    The term ikigai compounds two Japanese words:
