The Japanese Way To Find The Meaning Of Your Life

What is Ikigai

'Ikigai,' which translates as 'life purpose,' sounds intimidating, but it does not have to be the sole purpose of a person's life. In fact, the word life is more closely associated with daily life. In other words, ikigai can be about the joy a person experiences on a daily basis, without which their life as a whole would be unhappy.' – Akihiro Hasegawa (Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist), from Yukari Mitsuhashi's book IKIGAI - Giving Everyday Meaning And Joy.
