A key component of staying healthy

Residents of Okinawa suggest that you don’t always need to play a sport or go running to be healthy. Longevity and health are more about finding simple, consistent ways to move more through the day.

IDEAS

Life Value

The Japanese have a secret that embodies the idea of happiness in living, and it is called Ikigai.

Essentially, Ikigai, loosely translated to life value, or life worth, is a concept of living that the Japanese culture imbibes for decades.


  1. Everyone wants you to believe that the secret to a good life is to have a nicer job or a better car or a prettier girlfriend/ handsome boyfriend.
  2. You are going to die someday. Everyone you know is going to die soon. And in your short life you only have a certain amount of fucks to give.
  3. Not giving a fuck is not about being indifferent. It just means you’re comfortable with being different. Don’t say fuck it to everything in life, just to the unimportant things.
