A few years ago I made this graphic for Qigong.

I stumbled across it yesterday and I still think it’s brilliant. And it got me thinking about the benefits of practicing a ZEN+ lifestyle.

Blimey, I think you’ll agree that’s quite a list of worthwhile health benefits.

Imagine if you could bottle all of that and stick a label on it.

You’d have a multi-bizillion product on your hands.

But you can’t.

You can however get all of these benefits by practicing a ZEN+ lifestyle.

Best place to get started?

The ZEN+ book.

If you’ve already got it and you’re ready to get serious I suggest you become a ZEN+ Journal reader. Full details here.

Bye for now

P.S. You’ll notice there are a few repetitions in the list above, that’s because for quickness I extracted the information from the Zest, Exercise and Nutrition components of ZEN+ and there is some overlap.

Wouldn’t you agree, looking at the list of benefits above, it’s hard to understand why anyone wouldn’t be keen to practice ZEN+?
