Ikigai: Los secretos de Japón para una vida larga y feliz Reviews
I'm so disappointed. I thought this would be an amazing book but actually it's a mess. I could see what the authors were trying to do but they could have done it in 40 pages or less. There were some contradictory thoughts, not to mention the amount of times the same ideia was repeated over and over. Most of the times the graphics were completely unnecessary, as the text is super simple and easy to understand. Also, the amount of information about techniques and breathing exercises seemed as if t ...more

Ik weet niet precies wat ik van dit boek vond.. Aan de ene kant vond ik het heel erg leuk en zaten er echt goede lessen in, maar aan de andere kant vond ik het soms enorm zweverig.. Maar misschien komt dat ook wel doordat ik helemaal niks heb met energiestromen door je lichaam enzo.
Dat dorpje met zoveel 100-jarigen vond ik wel erg inspirerend! Mooie adviezen gaven die mensen ook in de interviews die in dit boek zijn weergegeven.

Yıllardır bir ikigaim varmış da farkında değilmişim. Şimdi daha bilinçli bir şekilde yaşamıma devam edeceğim. ikigaimi keşfettim, mutlu olmanın kendimce yorumunu buldum. anti-kırılganlık kavramını keşfettim. mutluyum....
This is a small. It powerful book filled with easy and obtainable goals. I've learned that I must achieve flow by giving up multi-tasking, slowing things down, living in the moment, and to breathe. Back to my sun salutations and meditations.
Eğer bu kitabı uzun yaşamın sırrı için okursanız (100 yaşına kadar yaşamaya ne gerek var da neyse) tatmin olabilirsiniz. İkigai denilen hayatın amacını bulma kısmı benim asıl ilgimi çeken kısımdı ki çok değişik bir bilgiyle karşılaştım diyemem. Biraz şey gibi olmuş, iki farklı konuyu anlatıp üçüncü bölümde bunları birleştirmeye çalışan tezler. Uzun ve mutlu yaşam + hayatınızın amacını nasıl bulursunuz, bulanlar nasıl bulmuş örnekleri. Kitapta Zen budizmi, Tai Chi gibi felsefesi olan öğretilerden ...more
Maybe it was because I have read The Blue Zone, but this felt stale; nothing new.
I enjoyed this book, it borrows a lot from different theories, but gives them a nicely written summary. As you read it you may find things that speak to you, that you would like to pursue, while others may not be as much to your liking. For me the most interesting part of the book was the first half, where they go into ideas, like what a good diet is, what flow is and how to achieve it, etc. The later part of the book focuses more on people who have lived to be old, and it was still interesting, ...more
