This week, I discuss a topic that for some is taken for granted, for others neglected, and for all of us, whether we are young or old, is the true secret to not only happiness but living a long life.
And I’m not talking about anti-ageing creams, botox, ketogenic or paleo diets (although diet is a significant factor in longevity).
I’m talking about being involved in your community.
- Ikigai: The Japanese secret to a long and happy life Kindle Edition – the book I recommend you all read detailing interviews of some of the oldest people in the world in Ogimi, Okinawa, Japan
- Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing – Bronnie Ware’s book distilling wisdom from hundreds of people in a hospice sharing their biggest regrets when faced with their own imminent mortality
- Coworking Bansko – a community of freelancers, entrepreneurs and digital nomads living in the mountains of Bulgaria (including me) that I mention in the episode
