Is ikigai the new hygge? The Japanese concept of finding purpose in our lives

We’ve snuggled up in knitted sweaters and filled our rooms with wood-scented candles in the pursuit of  hygge – the Danish concept of finding contentment in cosiness. When that didn’t work, we turned to the Swedish idea of lagom, or moderate living, and it turns out we’re still not happy. So maybe it’s ikigai, the lifestyle concept from Japan, that will help us live our best lives.
