THE IKIGAI LIFESTYLE
It is no question that the Japanese culture is known for its healthy lifestyle and longevity. Their secret?
Ikigai (ee-key-guy) is the Japanese concept, which in its simplest translation means “the reason for being” or “the reason for waking up each morning.” Here I call it your reason for rising. It is your purpose. It is what motivates you to keep going, despite any challenges you face. It is what encourages you to keep chasing your passions. It is what nourishes your mind, body, and soul. Ikigai denotes a lifestyle that ultimately leads to a purposeful and fulfilling life. Continuing to pursue what keeps you inspired will guide you to your ikigai.

a note from brynne
Ikigai holds a powerful place in my heart. Not only does it represent my Japanese heritage, but in my mind, it also represents what the occupational therapy + coaching are to me. I choose to associate the word with my work because I truly believe this work in this wellbeing space is my ikigai. My take on coaching is all about creating meaningful experiences for others, helping them to cultivate a truly fulfilling life of wellbeing, and my greatest hope is that through my own ikigai, I can help you find and live yours.
