Here is the part where I write a description that entices you enough to read my article, yet keeps you wanting more – or at least, that’s how the structured bloggers do it. So here you have it, 5 blog archives worth going through (for mindfulness and self improvement). And if Jill Coleman seems out of place, it’s only because you haven’t considered the power of mindset in nutrition and fitness (incredibly important!).
1. Mark Manson. http://markmanson.net/ He’s the man: “author, blogger and entrepreneur. I write about unconventional life advice, think of it as self-help for people who hate self-help. Find happiness through struggle. Conquer fear through surrender. Have more by owning less. Some people say I’m an idiot. Other people say I saved their life. Read and decide for yourself.” More lengthy than usual, but you can’t pull yourself away.
Author of: Models: Attract Women Through Honesty
2. ZenHabits by Leo Babauta. http://zenhabits.net/archives/ Simplify. Declutter. Find your inner peace. That’s what I did after reading this one. Almost like a diary, but short and relatable posts. Still fishing through the archives.
Author of: The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential…in Business and in Life
Zen Habits: Handbook For Life
3. JillFit (aka Jill Coleman) http://jillfit.com/ My go-to girl for fitness – but even more so, mindset. Personable, manageable, high-quality content. She doesn’t just tell you what to do, but more essentially, how. Go to her before your next diet, detox, or whatever kind of 21-day plan you’re trying to follow (she’ll give you something lasting!). No books of her own yet, but her husband Jade Teta has a great one out there (and another just released).
Still waiting on a book from Jill, but her husband, Jade Teta, has written 2 must-reads on metabolism!
The Metabolic Effect Diet: Eat More, Work Out Less, and Actually Lose Weight While You Rest
Lose Weight Here
4. Steve Pavlina http://www.stevepavlina.com/ One of the oldest, but best. Almost ashamed to say I just stumbled upon this one and it’s by far one of the greatest self-improvement blogs out there. One note I might add: this guy has killer advice, but his photos tend to be a liiiittle bit creepy (focus on the words – not the pictures. Or design).
Author of: Personal Development for Smart People: The Conscious Pursuit of Personal Growth
5. Tim Ferriss http://fourhourworkweek.com/blog/ Hacker of all things. But really. This guy is like some super-human. Speed reading, fat loss, master chef and business tips. Author of best-selling books, Four Hour Workweek, Body, and Chef. Don’t ask how he does it. Just read.
The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich
The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman
