Because the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are about to start I have been thinking about Japan and what we might be able to learn from the Japanese way of life.
Okinawa in the south of Japan is home to one of the societies around the world renowned for having a healthy population, having the world's longest life expectancy and the world’s healthiest elderly population.
So why is this? Well, there are lots of things that together make for a healthy lifestyle.
Incorporating some of these into our own lives might be a way to not only live longer but to make sure those years are healthy ones too.
So maybe take inspiration from the Olympians to be more Okinawan: set a target to aim for to give you 'ikigai' or get active by trying a new sport. You never know what you might achieve.
