What's the most sensible thing you've ever heard someone say?
"Someone who has a stiff body can’t think outside the box.”
It was my walking coach’s quote. I’ve been working as a psychiatrist, and I’ve been thinking that I’m a professional in mental sphere. But I’ve never thought in this way. Actually it was totally correct, body and mental are deeply connected. As I loosen up my body, my way of thinking got changed.
What gets you excited about life?
“Meeting new people”
I used to be very bad at communicating. It was because I was not confident and I was afraid of being thought to be different from others. But the more I get to know our normal is not normal for others, the more I enjoy meeting new people all over the world.
If you had to teach something what would you teach?
“I would teach healthy eating.”
I love eating, and I eat much!! But I’m totally healthy and not gaining weight. It’s because I care what to eat (not how much to eat!!). Japanese food is known very healthy. But nowadays common Japanese food is so changed. That’s why I think it’s important to adopt old Japanese cooking methods.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
: “I would answer 20!”
As we grow older, the less challenging mind we would have. I’d like to keep challenging forever. 20 years old is the beginning of our life as adults. I don’t want to forget the mind when we turn 20!
What is your idea of a fun date night?
“Go to the mountain, and wait for the shooting stars!”
Working hard every day and night, we never take some time for looking up at the sky even for a short time. Concentrate on a star, separating from smartphones, PC, and any kinds of SNSs, it’s that which is the best gift.
