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 of 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 always set up for an enjoyable reading experience. Easy access to all other blog posts listed in reverse-chronological order. Highly recommended!" KLD505

"Beautifully written, helpful advice." AkshaThrawn

"It's beautiful minimalist design is a tribute to the principles of Zen Habits!" Marcus Aurelius Seneca

"I had never heard of Zen Habits before, but as soon as I started reading through the brief but powerful entries, I stopped looking for additional self help apps." Pegah P

"Simple and stylish. A well made app that I'll definitely use regularly." Nicknoo

"There is a lot of interesting information in this app. People who are willing to change something in their lives will find it useful!" Jesus2011

Priceless Information

A fountain of spiritual information. Aside from the absolutely worthwhile subject matter Leo is also a phenomenal writer and reading his articles is always a joy. I’ve lost track of how much of his advice I’ve implemented into my own life but it’s been quite a bit and I’m all the better for it! I can’t recommend Zen Habits enough, do something kind for yourself and start reading!
