This paper introduces different applications of the 'Wholeness Egg' method in everyday life. It was originally invented by Iba as a way of designing workshops, based on Christopher Alexander's idea of wholeness and centers. Since we presented a paper 'Wholeness Egg-Methodology of Designing a 'Living' Workshop by Differentiating a Whole' in the EuroPLoP Conference 2018, its usage has been extended and getting utilized by people in everyday life situations. In this paper, we present the overview of the Wholeness Egg approach and then introduce two ways of application; life designing and reflection on experience. Showing some example cases, this paper concludes that this method supports people to conduct a design of everyday life, based on Alexander's idea of beauty in design, without asking them to know such a background theory. We believe that this technique can provide a good practical assistance to enhance the quality of our lives.
