Zen Habits is about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives. It’s about clearing the clutter so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing, and find happiness.

It features a couple powerful articles a week on: simplicity, health & fitness, motivation and inspiration, frugality, family life, happiness, goals, getting great things done, and living in the moment.

Leo Babauta is the creator and writer. He’s married with six kids and lives in San Francisco. He’s a writer, runner and vegan.



"I have been a follower of Zen Habits for a couple of years now and have tried many ways of reading the posts - on my Kindle, through email, website, etc. But this app for iPhone is by far my favourite way to read the posts! It's aesthetically pleasing; each post is simple yet elegant, and the formatting is alway set up for an enjoyable reading experience. Easy access to all other blog posts listed in reverse-chronological order. Highly recommended!" KLD505

Superb advice

The reminder to be aware and present has assisted me in identifying and transmuting mental chatter. Understanding and practicing principles are awesome but, to just sit and allow things to be, has placed my being in a "Happiness" state that apparently is infectious. Everyone around me smiles...that's' life; that's being. Love Zen Habits!!!!! Thanks!


Better than gold

Zen Habits is a priceless treasure. If everyone had this everyday, it would put therapists out of business. I learned decades ago that Zen is a pure psychology. You have helped me more than you can know! Thank You!!!



I really enjoy using this app, I find the articles refreshing and easy to read. They really motivate me to think about how I approach daily life. The only draw back is new publications only come out a few times a month, if that.
