Japan currently has the highest number of elderly people, not only type two i.e. diabetes caused by lifestyle, but also the number of heart disease patients is relatively low.
According to a recently published report, Japanese people have the healthiest lifestyle among 195 countries in the world. So let’s find out what the Japanese do to live a long and healthy life
have been
The biggest reason for the health of the Japanese is their traditional way of life, which is called Nagomi in Japanese. Which means a harmonious and balanced lifestyle. The secret of Japanese health lies in this lifestyle.
A major aspect of this lifestyle is the Ikigai ideology, meaning a purpose in life or a purpose in life that makes life worthwhile. Japanese people have a great awareness of Ikigai which makes their lives happy and meaningful. That purpose in life can be anything like raising children carefully or indulging in a hobby.
If you want to live a long and healthy life like the Japanese people, then you should follow them in this regard, i.e. find the purpose of living. Your Ikigai can be anything. As may be the purpose of serving the needy.
Another mantra of the Japanese people is that need is enough
Just eat. Many on the Japanese island of Okinawa
No one has blessed the people to become Shatayu
Even then they live more than a hundred years. The reason for this is- hara hachi boo. This means that the stomach is like this
Stop eating when the percentage is full. They believe that eating only eighty percent of what you need will slow down the aging process of your cells.
This is worth trying because this is what Ayurveda and other scriptures have been saying. The Japanese say that when you see food, don’t fall for it. It takes twenty minutes for the brain to notice that your stomach is full
This means that you have to wait a bit before you add more to the plate. It is possible that you will realize by yourself that there is no room in the stomach for more food and you will stop eating on your own.
Kaizen is another mantra of the Japanese people. Kaizen means good change. If there is an addiction or a habit that you want to change or get into a good habit, Kaizen can prove very useful. According to this Kaizen, take small steps to change any habit.
We often rush to change things quite radically all at once. Like if someone has a habit of getting up late in the morning and he should get up in Brahmamuhurta.
Now, if a person who sleeps till nine-ten o’clock decides that I will start getting up at four o’clock tomorrow, then it is possible.
It is that this resolution of his will not last even a day or so, but
Instead it was about a week after eight and a half
If he gradually starts getting up at seven, then six, five and four, he may fulfill his resolve to get up early, but on the first day, he should get up straight at four.
If he tries, he has to face defeat by himself.
Similarly if someone feels that he is constantly stuck on the mobile phone and it is not suitable for him then for example he can delete some social media apps first. If this seems difficult to do, Home
Put it inward from the screen so that you don’t habitually go to apps like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Harmony is an important aspect of the Nagomi lifestyle of the Japanese people. Calming the emotions and mind. This is very important. Japanese people avoid conflict in relationships as much as possible. Due to this, tension and disputes are reduced. Maintaining harmonious relations and harmony with one’s relatives is a priority in the Nagomi way of life.
In other words, even if there is disagreement in personal relationships, Japanese people are careful not to have differences of opinion. Instead of straining until it breaks, they believe in letting go. Due to this, their mind does not get stressed and due to maintaining harmony in relationships, they recover from many diseases.
If you want to live a long and healthy life, emulating this lifestyle of the Japanese people can prove very beneficial. A
