If you’ve ever wondered: “Where can I find practical self-improvement advice that gets results?”, you’re in the right place.

Hack Spirit publishes commentary pieces about psychology, self-improvement and eastern philosophy.

My useful self-improvement advice is why over 30,000 people have subscribed to my email newsletter, and thousands of people have bought my practical eBooks.

How Hack Spirit helps you live a mindful and awesome life 

Most so-called “self-help experts” advise you to try techniques like “positive thinking” or “positive visualization” to achieve your goals and live a better life.

If only it were that easy…

I learned the hard way that there’s a lot more to being happy than “positive thinking.”

It takes action every day over a long period to create sustainable positive change in your life.

That’s where Hack Spirit comes in.

This blog is where I share with you practical tips and strategies to help you live a more mindful and awesome life.

No fluff or lightweight tips. Just insanely actionable advice that works.

A note from Lachlan Brown, Hack Spirit founder, and writer 

I created Hack Spirit because I was so passionate about how useful mindfulness and eastern philosophy can be in people’s lives, yet most of the information out there failed to provide it in a practical and simple way. It frustrated me that such valuable knowledge was often delivered in confusing ways.

So I set out to change this. I believe that mindfulness doesn’t need to be esoteric. It can be very practical and accessible.

I have a graduate degree in Psychology and I’ve spent the last 6 years reading and studying all I can about human psychology and practical ways to hack our mindsets. Hack Spirit is a blog where I shared what I’ve read and learned.

I’m humbled by the incredible support I’ve received along the way from you, our readers. Hack Spirit is now one of the largest media sites on mindfulness and practical psychology for every day living with over one million monthly readers.

A lot of people have reached out asking about how Hack Spirit is financed and generates revenue. You’ve probably noticed that I run personalized advertising. I’ve also created a number of eBooks which you can purchase on the site.

Every now and then, I promote an affiliate product, but every time I have an affiliate partnership I’ll let you know at the top of the article. The 3 affiliates partner so far are Masterclass, Ideapod and Mind Valley.

Thank you for being a part of this journey. To keep in touch, follow me on Facebook or Twitter.

Most of the articles are written by me but every now and then we get some guest contributors on our site. I’ve listed them below.

Our writers

Justin Brown has been writing for Hack Spirit since its earliest days. He’s a reformed academic who has benefited from the guidance of Lachlan to simplify his writing so that it’s clear and accessible. He’s also running Ideapod, a technology company producing media on the ideas shaping our lives. His favorite philosopher is Noam Chomsky, and he’s also partial to the wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh when it comes to his ideas on engaged Buddhism.

Gosia Kurowska was born in Poland and has lived and worked in Belgium as a communications and press officer for the EU Institutions. She currently lives in Bangkok where she writes for Hack Spirit. She’s passionate about mindfulness and wellness, and is looking forward to learning more about eastern philosophy in her new home of Thailand.
