Today’s post will be a little bit different, no flashy photos, but a rather flashy concept. I have always been interested in ecology, low scale human sized farming and beekeeping, and I always felt my life in Tokyo, fantastic as it is, lacked a bit of the natural touch. So I was thrilled when I learned about the Ginpachi – the Ginza Hachimitsu Project, an ecological project centered around the humble bee to build a local community, aid farms, assist in the rebuilding of the tsunami ravaged north east and get some pretty wonderful 100% ecological honey in the process! The story is not new, but it is a story well worth repeating and adding to. In 2006 a local Ginza man decided to try his hand at using his building’s roof space for something more interesting than just as a place to put the air conditioning, beekeeping. Now…
I watched this Ted talk today. Robert said about Harvard study on many people life. The study conduct for over 70 years on many people in many variety of status from poor boy in Boston, a man from wealthy family or normal person doing his routine job.
The result of the study is really interesting. It shows that the most important thing of human to live longer with happiness are the quality of relationship they have. The poor relationship tend to shorten people life. The good quality of relationship make people live longer.
The study explain in science that the quality of life reflect the performance of the brain as well. The loneliness person will have shorten life and the brain underperform and lose its capacity. On the other hand, the person live an enjoyable relationship make more long live and healthy brain.
In the conclusion, He asked about what about you. What we are searching for is it wealth or famousness or happiness.
Today I run for 8km as a new year resolution to run twice a week.
What i learn from today is life is also running in a marathon. All have to run until the finish line. Some people might have faster pace than others but at last everyone have to carry on themself to pass the finished line. No matter who.
