Using science to hack self development

This is NOT a site for feel-good law-of-attraction-type personal development. This site is about developing a better you by providing you with actionable tips using SCIENCE. In other words, Examined Existence is a resource for tips to help improve many aspects of your life. This site explores the issues surrounding personal development (such as brain health, motivation, productivitypersonal fitness and happiness) using neuroscience, biology, and psychology as a context for discussion and discourse.

More poignantly, this site is dedicated to helping people live an enriched life.  To me, an enriched life means lifelong learning, in a state of good physical health, and mental clarity.  Thus, all topics on this site addresses one of the three components of an enriched life.
