Ikigai – Japanese Secret For Long & Happy Life
Lockdown has been hard, we all are put out of our routine lives
We are confined to the 4 walls, there is no more traveling, social lives.
This might take a troll on anyone including me. Although I love working from home, at the same time I love to take a walk or travel to some new place, learn something new
As we know that has not been possible for some time now.
Even as the country is unlocking but still…it isn’t the same probably it won’t be for some time now
All of this was too much for me
So,I started reading, to give myself something else to think about & something new to learn
I’m focusing more on personal development & self-help so get ready for some awesome insights.
Recently I finished reading an amazing book called Ikigai, & let me tell you it is a bundle of knowledge
I just love the book, if you are feeling down, lost, bored, unhappy, unsatisfied…if you are lost in your personal or professional or just need a good book to read…This is the one
Check out the book
I can bet that just after 1-2 chapters you’ll thank me for recommending, I finished the whole book in a week
I could have done in 2-3 days but I started delaying because I didn’t want it to end
It’s an amazing book that will give you valuable tips about love, your health both mental & physical, your work, your purpose of life, love, relationships even marketing…perfect for aspiring entrepreneurs.
I can go on praising the book..but I feel it will be better if I just share some really valuable insights into this
