Long Life Through Practicing Ikigai

I love how it seems like the Japanese have a word for everything.  And I'm even happier that English tends to grab onto foreign terms and make them our own!

This concept is deep and important to Japanese, and when you find your Ikigai, you have a greater chance of living a meaningful life.According to Japanese tradition, everyone has their own Ikigai, which is basically our existence.
It is a sense of purpose and feeling of wellbeing.Interestingly, it is often used by Japanese speakers to describe moments that bring happiness or to name something that brings joy to their life. In essence, it is the Japanese secret to a satisfying and fulfilling life.
