It’s all free, I never spam subscribers or let anyone see their email address, and you can unsubscribe faster than Usain Bolt runs 100 meters (9.58 seconds).

Subscribers Get The True Experience

Deep Existence has become more of an email-based platform. Subscribers get content each Tuesday, while the blog is only sporadically updated.

I’ve Crafted Three FOUR Premium Gifts For You!


1. Stress-Stopping eBook: Read my well-liked eBook, Stress Management Redefined, which is a step-by-step guide for how to remove stress from your life. Martyn Chamberlin said, “It’s probably the best eBook I’ve ever read.”

2. Focus Toolbox Access: This subscriber-exclusive page contains the best focus resources available on the web. Right now, there are five software programs with mini-reviews to help you focus better; all of them are free programs. I will update this page with new tools I find.

3. Exclusive Subscriber Message Archives: There are currently 30+ subscriber-only messages that some people have described as “life changing.”

4. Focus Wallpaper Set: Stay focused when you download my subscriber-only set of 40 focus quote wallpapers. These wallpapers can be set to rotate so that every time you see your desktop, you’re reminded and inspired to focus with a new quote. You can see all of the wallpapers here on youtube.

Do You Know The Scientific Benefits Of Focusing?

Studies show focusing…

  • Increases happiness (Killingsworth & Gilbert, 2010)
  • Boosts creativity (Sellier & Dahl)
  • Maximizes the brain’s effectiveness (April 2010 – Science Mag)

That’s just a small example of why focusing is really, really important.

I have personally found focusing and habit-building (habits are an estimated 45% of all human behavior according to a Duke University study) to be the most effective and important personal development skills, by far. That’s why I made Deep Existence a focus school and a haven against distractions.


The Deep Existence newsletter contains excellent focus insights, research, discussion, an expanded article, giveaways, and news.

2. A weekly Tuesday message before 7:00 AM.

I personally write subscribers a message every Tuesday before 7:00 AM. The message is personal and casual. I’ll also give you details and insights into an inside look at an award-winning blog. Yes, Deep Existence has won three awards, including the #1 personal development blog of 2012 award from White Dove Books, a top blog itself! 

3. Bonuses (rare): promotions, giveaways.

I’ve given away a few books so far. I’m considering giving away more, better stuff. We’ll see! Subscribers get first dibs. :-)

4. Deep Existence products are low in number and high in quality.

My book, Mini Habits, came in December 2013. The Mini Habit Mastery Video Course ($35 off via this link) was released in July 2014. Sign up to keep informed of future products and Mini Habits’ news!

5. Get personal emails, not automated sales funnels.

I’m not big on automation unless it’s a designed course. I will personally write each message to you. I also love to converse with subscribers and enjoy feedback, so feel at liberty to reply to any email I send you. Amused? Annoyed? Inspired? Let me know.

6. I’ll keep your information 100% confidential.

I’m a real person with an email address too, and anything else would grind against my values.

7. I will never spam you.

If you said, “Stephen, send me spam. It’s funny!” maybe I’d forward you something from my spam folder. But I rarely honor those requests. I don’t like spam.

8. 1080p Focus Wallpaper Set

For Deep Existence subscribers only! Instead of just looking at a pretty nature picture or whatever you currently have as your desktop, why not make better use of that space? With these 40 wallpapers set to rotate amazing quotes, you’ll constantly be reminded of the importance and benefits of focusing. I use them and they’re GREAT.

Real Feedback For Stress Management Redefined


“Dude I’m a third of the way through the eBook and it ROCKS. It’s probably the best eBook I’ve ever read. (Okay, it’s probably the first non-Internet marketing eBook I’ve read, so that might explain some things!)

But you worked hard to not make it boring. You succeeded.

No seriously, this thing’s been a breath of fresh air. I’m enjoying it immensely, and I’m actually LEARNING some stuff too. You could have charged for it.”
~ Martyn Chamberlin


“Really, really, really well done. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and will enjoy acting on it even more. Thanks for the bedrock information and taking the time to do this for all of us in the times we’re living. Highly, highly recommend it — and also an outstanding example of what can be accomplished strictly from a techie platform. Great work!”
