by Hector Garcia Puigcerver
The secret to a long life comes from finding joy and purpose every day. Ikigai, meaning 'a reason to live,' is a common practice in Japan that has been around for centuries.
Discovering our ikigai will teach us to slow down and find more enjoyment and purpose in life.
Hector Garcia Puigcerver, author of Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life, grew up in Spain but moved to Japan in 2004 and became enamored with the country's dynamic culture. In this Uptime Hack, we can understand how best to harness the power of ikigai in our own lives and bring greater joy to each day.
Essentials to happiness in life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
