Publisher's Summary

Discover the true purpose of your life and live longer: here’s how!

Have you ever heard about Okinawa? It’s an island in Japan where people regularly live to be 100 years old. Even at a very advanced age, they still do what they love and enjoy an active social life.

One of their main secrets is "ikigai". It means the reason why you get up in the morning. It’s what makes your life valuable. It makes you feel peaceful, focused, and energized. It can be a hobby, but you can also choose your job based on your ikigai, and you’ll be an excellent professional because you’ll be doing what you’re naturally good at!

So, how do you find your ikigai?

Try this audiobook. It’s the ultimate guide to discovering your ikigai and applying Okinawan lifestyle hacks to your own life. This book is special because it offers real techniques developed by psychotherapists, not motivational slogans or esoteric theories.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The surprising reason why people in certain communities live unusually long and healthy lives
  • Scientifically proven lifestyle hacks that will help you slow down your aging processes
  • Psycho-therapeutic techniques that will lead you toward discovering your ikigai
  • Nutrition strategies that will boost your health and help you focus on doing what you love
  • And much, much more!

Take your first step toward discovering your ikigai, and you’ll be amazed by how focused and mindful your life will become! 

Are you ready to discover your ikigai and transform your life?

FAQs

Is ikigai a religious concept?

Not necessarily. Spirituality helps many people find their true purpose, but it’s not absolutely necessary to believe in gods or follow specific religious rituals if you want to discover your ikigai.

I suffer from depression and anxiety. Will ikigai help me?

Yes. Your mental health professional can also help you find your ikigai if you ask them to.

Was looking for how to fill out my Ikigai

This has helpful tips for living a balanced, healthy life but I was really expecting this to get into how to find your own Ikigai and how to fill the chart out. Instead I’ll be doing my own research for this part.

Inaccurate title and hissing “S”s

The title for this book is completely misleading. It is nominally connected to lkigai. There is some interesting information in the book, but I was very disappointed because it’s not the type of information I was looking for at this time. Because the information had value I gave the overall score of three

Now when it comes to the narrator. She had hissing “S”s and so listening to her was quite trying.
