The Meditation Diet: How I Lost 60+ lbs. by Savoring : zenhabits

The Meditation Diet: How I Lost 60+ lbs. by Savoring : zenhabits | ZTD記事の翻訳 | Scoop.it

‘When walking, walk. When eating, eat.’ ~Zen proverb

By Leo Babauta

Picture me 7 years ago, about 60 lbs. heavier than I am now, with a chubbier face, a growing gut, and an addiction to junk food.

 

I ate pizza, chips, cookies, fried meats and cheeses, French fries, and drank beer and sweet & fatty lattes. I was 32 and headed for diabetes and heart disease, and couldn’t figure out how to change.

 

And yet, a year later I had lost about 20-30 lbs. and ran a marathon. The pounds kept dropping away, year after year, and more importantly, I was eating healthier foods. I now love fresh fruits and veggies, raw nuts and seeds, beans and whole grains that haven’t been ground up, real unprocessed food.

 

How did I do it? I used a really simple method that is not hard to do …

Meditation: The Most Fundamental Habit : zenhabits | ZTD記事の翻訳 | Scoop.it

‘ To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem.
To meditate means to observe.’
~Thich Nhat Hanh

By Leo Babauta

 

It’s no secret that I advocate meditation as a great way to start your day, deal with stress, live in the present and more.

 

But what many people don’t realize is that meditation is perhaps the most important habit if you want to change other habits.

 

Recently I wrote about the Four Habits That Form Other Habits — and you might recall Habit 2:

 

Be Mindful of Negative Thoughts

Why You Should Write Daily : zenhabits

Why You Should Write Daily : zenhabits | ZTD記事の翻訳 | Scoop.it

One of the most instrumental changes in my life has been writing every single day.

 

For many years I was a writer who didn’t write that regularly. It was always on the back of my mind to write, but I didn’t find the time.

 

Then I started this blog in January 2007, and have written pretty much every day since then.

 

It was life-changing ...

The Obstacle is the Path : zenhabits

The Obstacle is the Path : zenhabits | ZTD記事の翻訳 | Scoop.it

Often we’re discouraged because of some tough challenge or obstacle in our way. But a shift in mindset from a Zen proverb can change everything:

 

“The obstacle is the path.”

 

The obstacle isn’t something standing in our way. It’s the way itself.

That might seem strange, so let’s look at a few examples:

Twelve Keys of Emotional Intelligence : zenhabits

Twelve Keys of Emotional Intelligence : zenhabits | ZTD記事の翻訳 | Scoop.it

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Eugene Yiga of Varsity Blah.

Ever since Daniel Goleman wrote Emotional Intelligence, the subject seems to have made its way into success literature all over the world. But what exactly is emotional intelligence and why is it so important?

 

Well, the “why” is quite clear. Many people find themselves successful in all the traditional ways (i.e. with money and all its flashy friends) but still not satisfied. Creating meaning in life requires strong relationships and doing so requires emotional intelligence.

 

So, how does one go about creating a greater sense of emotional intelligence? In this post, I will outline the twelve aspects involved and offer brief descriptions of each:

The Little Book of Contentment

‘He who is contented is rich.’ ~Lao Tzu

By Leo Babauta

 

One of the most important things I’ve learned in the last 7 years has been how to find contentment.

 

It’s been a long journey, but I’ve enjoyed it. I struggled with feeling bad about my body, feeling insecure about myself, doubting my abilities to make it without an employer, doubting myself as a writer, not believing I had discipline or the ability to change my habits ...
