Conscious living is a term that means adopting a lifestyle that is more aware – or conscious – of the things going on around us as they happen. Many people who turn to a conscious way of living will find that they spend more time enjoy moments as they occur rather than thinking ahead too much and making plans. The basic idea is to be more earthed or connected in the here and now rather than worrying excessively about what might happen. For some, it means feeling more empowered about their daily lives and less restricted in what they perceive their choices to be. As such, it is often interpreted as a form of self-awareness that can be incorporated into daily life. Someone who is living consciously, for example, might find adopting healthy eating habits easier because they are more engaged in all of the micro-decisions that are involved in deciding what to eat and what not to consume. That said, it has a role to play in all aspects of life, not just food.

The term assisted living has slightly different meanings where in the world you happen to be talking about it. In the main, however, it is a Western concept that means some people – usually with a vulnerability of some sort – are able to live semi-independently in their own rented homes which are part of a wider complex or organisation that offers support. A typical example might be, for instance, a block of flats or bungalows which are supported by a team of concierge, care or nursing staff. As such, assisted living facilities are a type of housing solution first and foremost. The degree to which they offer support differs depending on the facility as well as individual needs. However, the design of each housing unit should have ongoing and changing assistance requirements built into its fabric.
Community living is where a group of people reside among one another to form a community that is based on certain shared demographics, interests or ideologies. In some cases, lots of people live under the same roof sharing everything which is usually referred to as a commune. In other instances, looser interpretations are commonplace where a group of families and individuals live close to one another but independently from each other, only helping out each other on an informal basis here and there. Essentially, community living boils down to residing in a community that requires people to take an active part in. Therefore, it differs from simply living in a town or city close to other individuals but who you have no meaningful interactions with.
