004: Finding Ikigai in Leisure with Professor Shintaro Kono
In episode 4 of the Ikiagi Podcast, I interview Assistant Professor Shintaro Kono who has a Ph.D. in Sport and Recreation. We discuss his research, which revolves around the relationship between leisure engagement and ikigai.
In this episode, we talk about "keiken" - valued experiences, which include enjoyment, effort, stimulation, and comfort. Also, Professor Kono offers advice on how you can find ikigai in leisure activities.
