The personal development world is full of bad information. Self help experts and the media often ignore key pieces of the puzzle and don’t tell the full story. Far too many so-called “experts” base their recommendations on opinion and anecdote rather than scientific data.
We got so sick and tired of this that we hired a team of researchers to dig through a huge treasure trove of scientific data and figure out what the science is really saying, free of bias, hype, and self promotion.
Our research team painstakingly combed through thousands of studies to figured out exactly what the science says about popular personal development topics, what works, what doesn’t, and exactly how you can use things like meditation, journaling, breathing, and so much more to achieve your goals.
We have compiled all of this research by topic and this page shows you exactly what the science says. To make it easy to understand we created a Human Effects Matrix to showcase the scientific research around each of these topics.
Within the Human Effects Matrix for each topic we share the level of evidence, the magnitude and relationship of the various effects (for example, how much does Mantra Meditation reduce anxiety?), the specific scientific studies referenced, and any relevant research notes.
Our hope is that with this tool you can finally find and implement the self help and personal development methods that will create the biggest positives results in your life. And this time, you will have science on your side.
