Experiencing Integrated Living with the zero-G Living Octave
An introduction to living a “ZeroGravity.Life”
Optimal health, function and performance requires an action-based mindset on our part – rather than an intellectual or technical approach – which forms the foundation of an integrated life experience. It begins with recognizing and working in tune with your body’s fundamental organic rhythm, your daily “Living Octave”.
It is in becoming more sensitive to your body’s state and feedback in real time – your actions, timing of activity, sleep quality, exercise – that enhances bio-harmony within.
As each of us has our own absolutely unique assembly of physiological characteristics and expressions, your “living octave”, it is essential that we become “experts” in understanding our personal rhythm that allows us to effectively maintain optimal health, performance and well-being over the course of a lifetime.
The insights we gain by observing our rhythm in this “living” context – variations in hunger and thirst, physical energy, mental sharpness, mood and sleep state – that contribute to our overall “state” at any given moment, allowing us to respond appropriately in-real-time as we go through our day.
With a new awareness and sensitivity of our process, we gain improved ability to “hear” our body’s feedback. Listening in this new way gives us the option to respond directly, creating a harmonic response (within).
It is in maintaining our attention to our overall state, throughout the course of each day – that refines our senses to the actions we must take to create and maintain internal balance and harmony.
The natural outcomes of paying attention to ourselves in this was – are improved mind/body integration, a robust living state and resilient mind – sustainable, regardless of the life challenges we are faced with.

Refining awareness of your state (mental and physical), at any point during the day, enables you to take the actions that promote synchrony (harmony) of mind and body as it’s happening.
Remember… your life rhythm is uniquely your own.
The zero-G Living Octave daily cycle – Fundamental Elements
Early Morning & Waking up
- Early morning sleep: dreams and related experiences
- Waking Up: gathering energy for the day
Daytime Action Cycle(s) – (may be repeated more than once during a 24 hour time period )
- Preparation: “Warmup” – Planning / activating mind and body
- Action: Work/Performance Learning Creativity
- Break: Feed/Reset (Lunch)
- Recover: Reflect/Reset (Sleep Giant – zero-G PowerNap)
Evening – Personal Activity / Winding Down
- Recharge: Main Meal
- Leisure: Relaxation/ Contemplation (Sleep Giant – Wind down)
Night time – Sleep
- Deep Restoration: Sleep/Neuro-Physical regeneration (Sleep Giant – Sleep Deep Albums)

This interactive zero-G Living Octave model shows the flow of a “typical day” with multiple work/performance activity periods!
The zero-G Living Octave is the result of more than 30 years of applied research, with people of all levels and disciplines, as to what it is – to live in one’s optimal life performance rhythm.
