By Leo Babauta
I’m happy to share with you a new “short read” ebook that I’ve written: the Zen Habits Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness.
I’ve written this for absolute or near beginners, who would like to bring mindfulness into their lives … or who are struggling with:
- Creating better habits
- Frustration, disappointment, feeling stuck
- Relationship problems
- Being content
I’ve found that mindfulness is the fundamental skill to deal with any of these struggles. And in this short ebook — which you can read in one sitting if you feel like it — I not only talk about why this is true, I share some simple exercises for developing the skills to deal with any of these struggles.
I don’t promise miracles, and you’ll have to do the exercises to get decent at these skills. But they work, in my experience, and I hope they help you.
The Short Ebook & the Package Deal
I’ve written this intentionally as a “short read” … and so I’m pricing it low ($4.99), so more people will be able to buy and use it.
But I’ve also created a package with the ebook (in 3 formats) along with three guided audio meditations that go along with the exercises in the book.
You can buy just the ebook here:
Or buy the package with the audio meditation downloads here:
Who Should Buy This
This is aimed at beginners to mindfulness, and anyone who is struggling.
Don’t buy this if you:
- Have years of experience meditating
- Are great at creating habits
- Don’t procrastinate
- Are content and happy
- Know how to deal with stress and anxiety
- Won’t actually read the book
However, do buy this if you:
- Are new or fairly new to mindfulness
- Struggle with changing your habits
- Tend to procrastinate
- Would like to start working towards contentment and peace
- Are ready to take action and read the book and do the short exercises
The book won’t solve all of these problems, but it will help you develop skills that will be helpful in all these areas. It’s a great start, at the very least.
I’ve written the book in PDF, Kindle (mobi) and iBooks (epub) formats. You can buy them all in one compressed file here for $4.99:
If you just want to buy the book from the Amazon Kindle store, you can buy it here for $4.99. That will only be the Kindle format, though. I would love it if you gave me a good review and/or rating! (Note: It’s available in all of the global Amazon stores.)
If you just want to buy the book from the Apple iBooks store, you can buy it here for $4.99. That will only be the iBooks/epub format, though. And again, I would love it if you gave me a good review and/or rating! (Note: It’s available in all of the global iBooks stores.)
Finally, I have the three formats (PDF, mobi, epub) plus a package of three audio guided meditations for $9.99 that you can buy here:

You have questions, I have answers.
Q: What do I get when I buy the ebook?.
A: If you buy it using the blue “buy the ebook” button above, you’ll get a compressed zip file … when you decompress it, there will be a folder with the PDF, epub (for iBooks) and mobi (for Kindle) files. If you buy from the Kindle store, you’ll just get the Kindle book. If you buy from the iBooks store, you’ll just get the epub version. And if you buy the package deal, you’ll get the three formats plus links to download three audio guided meditations that I’ve recorded.
Q: Is there a print version? What about an audiobook version?.
A: No, sorry. This is only being released as an ebook.
Q: I bought the package, but where are the audio files?.
A: Open the “Read me” PDF file in the folder you downloaded … there are links to download the audio files in the Read me PDF.
