Good Monday everyone!

Hope you had an inspiring weekend and you are ready to smash this week! Because I am! I feel ready and inspired thank to this amazing book “IKIGAI” that really made me think about simple but life changing choices.

Here is what I learned:

  • Stay active

This is something really obvious, but how many of us really stays active until the later age? On the book, the writer observes that there is no old man or woman doing nothing. Their days are busy and full of events, but no one is rushing or running late, they all take their time and enjoy whatever they are doing.

  • Don’t fill your stomach

Yes! There are a couple of tricks that I am using for this one. The first one is to take my time, I am trying to eat slowly and really taste the food and the second one is to drink one or two glasses of water 20 minutes before eating. The book gave also another interesting tip: eating at least 18 different types of food a day.I started counting my types of food and I could barely reach 10 to 12 types!

  • Surround yourself with good friends

You don’t need a lot of them. You just need the good ones!

  • Be always thankful

Every day I think of what I am grateful for and every time I do that I feel so lucky and loved! Every day there is always something new to be thankful for!

  • Follow your Ikigai and if you don’t have one, well, find it!

If you don’t know what the IKIGAI is, then it is the right time for you to read the book and find out. I promise this is not sponsored! I just think it is a book that every one needs 🙂
