What does Ikigai mean? Ikigai is a Japanese word meaning something that motivates us to live, something that gives us a meaning to live.
A lot of people say golf is my ikigai, or fishing is my ikigai. Does it mean ikigai is your hobby? Well, it can be your hobby if it is something you truly love doing, and you can call it the purpose of your life.
The fact of the matter is it depends on how you live your life. If you don’t have a purpose in your life other than your hobbies, a hobby can be your ikigai.
For me, ikigai is more than just a hobby. It is a life mission that I chose to make a difference in this world; it is something coming from the center of myself or the source of my existence.
It is nice to have such a feeling, isn’t it? We all can if we are balanced if our body, mind, and spirit are all integrated.
A lot comes from our diet. What you eat and how you eat affect your mental state as well as physical condition. If you have a balanced, healthy diet, you will be connected to your source, and you will live in accordance with your life mission.
That is what the Ikigai Diet is all about. It is a diet and an integrated lifestyle which will help you remember who you are and find your ikigai.
