  • Leesdame

    Ik zal er geen geheim van maken: ik ben enthousiast over 'Ikigai'! Ik heb na het lezen van dit boek enorm veel geleerd en met een aantal adviezen ben ik meteen aan de slag gegaan.

    De betekenis van Ikigai is simpel: een reden zoeken voor je bestaan. Waar wordt je gelukkig van? Wat is je streven? Hoe leef je zo gezond mogelijk? Op het Japanse eiland Okinawa leeft vrijwel elke bewoner met een ikigai. Op dit eiland leven meer gezonde en actieve honderdjarigen dan waar ook ter wereld. Reden genoeg dus

    The last book I read on this topic was really inspiring and I couldn’t put it down.

    I was looking forward to reading this one and was woefully disappointed.

    It’s insipid, tedious and misses the point entirely.

  • Ran

    The book is a light dive into the Japanese concept of ikigai (fulfillment through knowing one's raison d'être) and into the "secrets" of supercentenarians (over 110 years) in Okinawa. I am not sure if it's the translation from Spanish to English that makes the book feel a little ... hmm, strange. But there's a honest determination to "live forever" in underneath the interest in the Japanese supercentenarians. It seems to at times equate quality of life with living forever as if it's the logical ...more

    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:

    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." 💙

    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

    Ik zal het boek hier even samenvatten, want het is nogal lang van stof.

    De enige hint in dit boek om je Ikigai te vinden, is door jezelf de vraag 'Waarom heb je nog geen zelfmoord gepleegd?' te stellen. Daar moet je bij optellen dat je gezond moet eten en voldoende moet bewegen, en in contact moet blijven met mensen om je heen, want dan word je ouder dan honderd.

    Graag gedaan.

    I enjoyed this book, it borrows a lot from different theories, but gives them a nicely written summary. As you read it you may find things that speak to you, that you would like to pursue, while others may not be as much to your liking. For me the most interesting part of the book was the first half, where they go into ideas, like what a good diet is, what flow is and how to achieve it, etc. The later part of the book focuses more on people who have lived to be old, and it was still interesting, ...more
