Lifestyle Choices – Zen Life

Written by | B-Roll

Health is more than just eating well. These lifestyle suggestions are designed to help you live a truly healthy, happy life. What can you apply to your daily life?

Eating habits

  • Avoid cooking with microwave ovens.
  • Avoid water with chlorine and fluoride. Distilled is best, or use spring water or a good-quality water filter.
  • Chew your food well, 30 seconds per mouthful or more, until it becomes liquid.
  • Add more fruits and veggies.


  • View everything and everyone you meet with gratitude.
  • Do your best to be on good terms with people. Especially your boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife, parents, children, brothers, sisters, friends and co-workers. Communicate with them regularly, either in person or via telephone or email.


  • To increase your circulation, scrub your entire body with a hot, damp washcloth morning and/or night. You could also dry brush with a natural bristle brush.
  • Avoid wearing synthetic or woolen clothing directly on the skin. Wear 100% cotton clothing as often as possible.
  • Avoid chemically perfumed cosmetics.
  • Use natural toothpaste.
  • Avoid excessive jewelry on your fingers, wrists and neck; fewer rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and piercings allow your natural energy flow to circulate more freely.


  • Give generously of yourself and your resources.
  • Live each day happily without focusing on your problems.
  • Hum or sing a happy song every day.
  • Foster a sense of humor.
  • Offer thanks before and after meals.
  • Most of all, create a positive attitude and wonderful environment around you, and enjoy the process of   becoming healthier and happier every step of the way!

Meditation and Exercise

  • Treat yourself to regular daily quiet time – study, pray, meditate; recharge yourself.
  • Include exercise as part of your daily life. Experiment with an exercise style that works for you. Try yoga, pilates, martial arts, walking, running, bicycling, rollerblading, swimming, dancing, weightlifting or competitive sports.


Home practices

  • Keep your home in good order, including kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living rooms. You are your home.
  • If possible, include large green plants in every room of your home and office to freshen and enrich the oxygen content of the air.
  • Minimize television-watching, or at least keep a good distance away from the television.
