Product description

Review

"Ikigai urges individuals to simplify their lives by pursuing what sparks joy for them. . . . Much in the same way that The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up emphasizes 'choosing what we want to keep, and not what we want to get rid of, ' [Ikigai] demonstrates that aging could be an opportunity to keep working, keep smiling, keep active, and keep being social." --KonMari Newsletter

"Want to live longer? Keep super busy. If hygge is the art of doing nothing, ikigai is the art of doing something--and doing it with supreme focus and joy. . . . Pack up those cozy blankets and candles you purchased in last year's hygge-fueled Ikea spree. Fall's biggest imported lifestyle trend is ikigai, and it might help you live to 100." --New York Post

"Busy-ness is a concept I'm familiar with and fascinated by, especially living in New York City. . . . The Japanese concept of ikigai (the happiness of being busy) [is] attainable and even an important key to living longer." --Mia Feitel, Elle.com

"Discovering your ikigai, or passion, can be one of the greatest journeys you will embark on." --Forbes

"Definitely worth the time it will take you to enjoy a cup or two of green tea as you digest this small, charming book." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A must-follow lifestyle hack, ikigai makes hygge look like a trip to Ikea. . . . Think feng shui with Venn diagrams--although this time there is no need to move the front door." --The Guardian

"You've tried hygge and lagom--but it turns out ikigai is the key to happiness." --The Independent (London)

"Forget hygge. It's all about ikigai." --The Times (London)

"Ikigai is what allows you to look forward to the future even if you're miserable right now. . . . It might just help you live a more fulfilling life." --BBC

"Originating from a country with one of the world's oldest populations, ikigai is becoming popular outside of Japan as a way to live longer and better. . . . [It] is helping people live longer on Okinawa as it gives them purpose." --World Economic Forum

"Ikigai. Ick-ee-guy. It's a word you'll be hearing quite often come autumn. . . . It's Japanese, and it means something like 'purpose in life, ' or 'thing that you live for, ' or 'thing that gets you out of bed in the morning.' . . . An extended lifespan, according to the long-life expert Dan Buettner, is what awaits havers-of-ikigai." --The Sunday Telegraph

"A refreshingly simple recipe for happiness." --Stylist

"The most eye-catching autumn lifestyle trend is the Japanese concept of ikigai, which translates as 'reason to live.' . . . An attractive and absorbing book." --The Bookseller

"A Japanese concept that offers a new perspective on finding happiness." --The Debrief

"Persuasively shows that small changes can help readers find more joy and purpose in their lives [with] clear, succinct information . . . skillfully compiled . . . into an engaging, easily accessible format with lists, charts, and illustrations." --Publishers Weekly

"Ikigai gently unlocks simple secrets we can all use to live long, meaningful, happy lives. Science-based studies weave beautifully into honest, straight-talking conversation you won't be able to put down. Warm, patient, and kind, this book pulls you gently along your own journey rather than pushing you from behind." --Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation
