If you've never visited Zen Habits you've been missing out on a demonstration of just how good non-fiction self help writing on the internet can be. If I had to categorize the nature of the blog, and Babuata's primary focus, in one tag, I'd say that it's part of the simplification movement.

He also writes about exercise, how to handle procrastination, relationships, and the whole range of subjects also treated in the thousands of self help books on the market today.
His blog practices what it preaches. The visual design of the site is sparse and highlights the written advice. The advice Babuata gives tends to be straightforward and broken into manageable steps. And while not every step he outlines in his articles would work for me, the advice is generally solid.
