Ikigai

Ikigai talks about world’s blue zones, where people live longer and have fewer diseases than anywhere else in the world. Places like¬†Okinawa, Japan or Sardinia, Italy. Scientists interview centurians that live in these regions and try to find insights about longevity. Some of the recommendations are:

  • Fill your belly to 80%, stop eating before you’re full
  • Eat a wide variey of vegatables every day
  • Grains are the foundation of their diet, they rarely eat sugar.
  • Drink green tea, rich in antioxidants
  • Stay active, do lightweight exercise

Overall, the book isn’t very coherent, and talks about many different subjects and doesn’t have a single hypothesis.
