The teenage years are tough. Even though they should be fun, teens are often stressed and unsatisfied. Zen Teen attempted to teach teens simplicity and happiness. This leads to peace.
At the same time, this blog teaches teens how to become successful, whether it be grades, sports, or dealing with parents.
After reading Leo Babauta’s post about teen’s on Zenhabits, I was inspired to create a blog for teens. The idea had been swirling around in my head for years, but I hadn’t acted upon it. But after that post, thinks became clear “zen teen.”
I asked Leo about the project, and he said I could create it. Thus, Zen Teen was born.
I am the main author and designer behind Zen Teen. I am a 16 year old teen who is fed up with the high amount of stress teens deal with. I am on a journey to reduce stress and become happy, while at the same time succeeding.
I am by no means an expert. But I am a teen and I have accomplished some things:
Made Varsity Soccer Team
Became a Runner
Learned to build my body
Made money by writing
Wake Up at 6:00 A.M.
(usually) Make All A’s
Take all honors and AP classes
