Thrive Global and The Quaker Oats Company present The Fuel List—20 people changing the way we fuel our minds and bodies every day. These are the leaders making an impact in the worlds of sleep, nutrition, movement and mindfulness right now.

Leo Babauta is proof that anyone can use the principles of mindfulness to improve their life and well-being—and clear out the clutter, both literally and figuratively, in the process. The Zen Habits blog founder wasn’t living a life that fulfilled him—he was unhappy, unhealthy and having trouble making ends meet. After teaching himself techniques to be more mindful and cut back on his consumption-heavy ways, his life started to change. Now, he’s running marathons, his finances are no longer a source of stress and he’s published bestselling books like The Power of Less. His goal now? To share his best strategies for being mindful each day and deciding what’s really deserving of your attention with the masses through his books and his blog.

“Leo’s story is an inspiring one of transformation. It’s exciting to see his approach to taking control of your holistic wellness has reached the masses and continues to impact our outlook on mindfulness.” — Sadira Furlow, Senior Marketing Director of Consumer Engagement, PepsiCo North America Nutrition
