What is the term of Okinawans’ philosophy of having a purpose in life?
Ikigai is a multifaceted concept that involves the convergence of four key elements: what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for. When these four elements come together, they form a sense of purpose and meaning in life. Ikigai is not just about finding a career or making money; it is about finding joy and fulfilment in every aspect of life. Ikigai is considered to be one of the key elements in Okinawans’ extraordinary longevity.
