  • Essential Meaningful Productivity 3 July 2020
    By Leo Babauta I don’t care about being efficient and productive just to be a better person, to get more done, to be more awesome. Cranking out more stuff for productivity’s sake doesn’t interest me anymore (it used to). Today, I care about productivity only as it affects my mission. I’m on a mission to […]

  • The Lost Art of True Rest 27 June 2020
    By Leo Babauta OK, calling this a “lost art” is a bit of hyperbole, because there are some people who actually rest these days. But I don’t believe most people do it anymore. I could rail about the age of distraction (I’ve done that before), and social media and devices. Yada yada, you’ve heard it […]

  • The Not Knowing of This Moment of Confronting Racism 23 June 2020
    By Leo Babauta Last week, I spent some time trying to write an article both celebrating Juneteenth, and inviting all of us to examine the root of our own racism. I struggled. I didn’t know exactly what to say, didn’t have any good solutions to offer, didn’t feel I had a grasp of the situation […]

  • It’s Time to Change the Status Quo 4 June 2020
    By Leo Babauta This is a painful time for so many of us. There is anger, outrage, pain, fear, racism, injustice, sadness, exhaustion — and it’s not just a recent thing, it goes back generations, as far as our country has existed. It’s heartbreaking. We need to let our hearts be broken by how minorities, […]

  • The Joy of Bone-Exhausting Work 28 May 2020
    By Leo Babauta Over the last week, my family and I moved to a new home, away from San Diego and into the suburbs east of Los Angeles (to be near family). As usual, we did all the moving ourselves, and it was exhausting! We don’t have a crazy amount of stuff for a family […]

  • Moving Through the Day with More Ease 22 May 2020
    By Leo Babauta I recently did dozens of video calls for applicants for my new Fearless Mastery mastermind … and at first, it really exhausted me. I shared that with my Zen teacher, and we had a discussion about leaning into the calls (which feels very tense for me) vs. leaning back and allowing some […]

    By Leo Babauta This pandemic is no longer an exciting (but scary) novelty. We’re a couple months into this lockdown and crisis, and it’s starting to wear on many of us.
