In this chaotic world full of uncertainties, we just want a place where we can find peace -- away from all those distractions in life. In Japan, they have a term called yutori which may mean a space to have peace of mind. How can one practice this concept of yutori and achieve peacefulness in life? Nick Kemp talked about this in his book, IKIGAI-KAN: Feel a Life Worth Living.

Give yourself the freedom to be and let go of attachments
A Japanese concept I write about in my book IKIGAI-KAN is yutori. And yutori is one of my favourite words and I like to define it as “the space to have peace of mind.” A dictionary would describe it as room, space, elbowroom, leeway.
But I think, it’s the space to have peace of mind. So I’d like to quote from the book:
“There’s always something to worry about, this is a mantra I repeated for most of my adult life, and it has been very helpful. In fact, it was actively detrimental to my well-being, and often prevented me from enjoying life’s most meaningful moments. I don’t recommend it at all. Instead, I recommend the Japanese concept of yutori. If you have a tendency to worry as much as I did, then you may find yutori life changing.”
Yutori is life changing. It’s giving yourself the freedom to be, to calm your mind, to let go of attachment, to let go of worry, and just be reflective and contemplative, and give your mind a chance to exhale.
Yutori can be life changing, and it’s this space to be – to feel free, to relax, and not to feel worried or stressed. So do you need some yutori? If you do, and you like to learn more, grab a copy of my book, IKIGAI-KAN: Feel a Life Worth Living.
