Ikigai- the Japanese secret to a long and happy life by Hector Garcia is the book which tries to find the answer to this question. Ikigai means a reason for living. There is a Japanese proverb “Only staying active will make you want to live a hundred years”. In this book, Hector Garcia interviewed residents of the Japanese village with the highest population of 100 years old living people. Ikigai is the reason we get up in the morning. It is the reason many Japanese never retire. They never stop working and remain active throughout there life. Everyone has its own Ikigai. Some find it early in life while others take some time. But ikigai is always there inside waiting to be found. Everyone must find their ikigai to live a long and happy life.

From the book: Ikigai

There is much wisdom in the classic saying “mens sana in corpore sano” (“a sound mind in a sound body”): It reminds us that both mind and body are important, and that the health of one is connected to that of the other. It has been shown that maintaining an active, adaptable mind is one of the key factors in staying young.

Having a youthful mind also drives you toward a healthy lifestyle that will slow the aging process.

Just as a lack of physical exercise has negative effects on our bodies and mood, a lack of mental exercise is bad for us because it causes our neurons and neural connections to deteriorate—and, as a result, reduces our ability to react to our surroundings.

Ikigai: Japanese secret to long and happy life.
