TEBI podcast 45: Héctor García on lessons from long lives in Japan

In the fifth of a series of 12 TEBI episodes looking at meaning and money during later careers or second lives, Jonathan Hollow interviews multi-million selling author Héctor García about the lessons we can learn from the longest-living people in Japan. Héctor is the co-author of”Ikigai”, a book about a key concept in Japanese wellbeing, which translates to "reason for being" or "purpose in life".

Héctor explains his deep insights into Japanese culture and its approach to later life, highlighting how the Japanese transition to different phases of life rather than retiring completely. He discusses stress, acceptance of negative emotions, and the significance of community support among older people in Japan. He suggests that any change from our first life to a new life should be gradual, combined with both self-awareness and perseverance. The interview explores the profound impact of Japanese culture on García's perspective on life and he offers thoughtful and compelling insights for anyone looking for fresh purpose and sustainable happiness.

This podcast series has been developed with financial planning firm Mulberry Bow. Based in London, they offer a highly personalised service to around 150 individuals and families. Robin Powell and Jonathan Hollow are very grateful for their enthusiastic support for "Second Lives”.
