Japonisme is a book on the Japanese inspired guide to living a happier fulfilled life I recently decided to check out the entire fad with books on Ikigai Lagom Hygge etc And so preceding this I d just read Ikigai by Hector Garcia Between the two I would say Japonisme is the better written book It is of a memoirlifestyle book whereas Ikigai was based heavily on researchComing to Japonisme the author is born to an English father and Japanese mother She draws on memory and her heritage to elaborate on Japanese daily living their customs and little rituals that when turned into a discipline gradually go on to becoming a way of life Along the way she illustrates the popular cultural customs beliefs and benefits thereofConcepts that stood out for me1 Ikigai a person s raison d tre or reason for living that which drives you to wake up every morning and go about your day2 Wabi Sabi to be honest I related to this concept than Ikigai even This belief teaches one to embrace imperfection and impermanence Eg it would tell you to age gracefully rather than going to great lengths to look young or perfect Another example is the passing of time or concept of transience and how to accept this without hurrying without stressing and enjoying the present moment It borders very close to mindfulness3 Shinrin yoku the concept of forest bathing or being nourished by nature This simply means finding the time to be with nature for a few minutes each day which greatly helps the soul and mind to replenish its juices something as easy as taking up gardening or going for walks outside in silence4 Penmanship and sumi e The Japanese art of calligraphy is about discipline and perseverance until you get each characterstroke just right This has to do with training the mind to focus on the present task rather than waver Before you know it there is order and precision in all things you doThere are various other things the writer touches upon tea Ikebana flower arrangement food and hot springs While it is one thing to expound the Japanese way of life on paper it s another to provide practical examples of how to incorporate these in one s life To that end the writer definitely walks the talk by sharing anecdotes from her lifeWhat I liked about this book was how relatable it is not just to my own memories of growing up but also to many often forgotten or cast aside Indian cultural norms yogapranayama in the mornings followed by bathing and praying to your God and ancestors eating a balanced diet rich in all essential nutrients in proportion being frugal in means upholding community values maintaining a work life balance staying fit and active passing on family traditions etcThe only reason this wouldn t be a 5 star book would be because some parts felt forced I found the recipes uite interesting but I could also have done without them The portion on tea on the other hand was A but then I uite like teaAll in all this book is worth its salt if you re looking to dip your toes into the Japanese lifestyle genre
