What is Lifestyle Economy?

The new economy is personal. It’s global. It’s creative. And the rules are altogether different.

Lifestyle Economy® is a mindfulness approach to lifestyle. It’s about utilizing the intangible resources in your way of life to manifest the most satisfying tangible ones. It’s about creating sustainable balance within your own lifestyle, in order to weather the inevitable ebbs and flows of external conditions. It’s about integrating your lifestyle and livelihood so that you have a sense of spiritual fulfillment across the board at work, home, and beyond.

Lifestyle Economy involves:

  • listening for resonance and pursuing what harmonizes with your essence,
  • flowing with the multi-channel rhythm of existence in family, community, and cultural dynamics,
  • using rhetoric for self-talk and interpersonal communication that builds up instead of breaks down,
  • cultivating responsibility for what you can control and letting go of what you can’t.
