The Aim of Zelo is to empower people to live more productive and fulfilling lives through the development of positive daily habits.


What we do? We spend our time researching ways in which we can improve Wellbeing, Motivation & Productivity. From this we publish free resources to help people get the most out of life.

The research is based on Productivity Principles, Scientific Research and Positive Psychology.

Productivity improvement is far from a one-size-fits-all issue. This is why we publish a wide range of resources that you can implement in your life.

Be sure to stay up to date via our Social Media Pages and by signing up to our newsletter.

You’ll be hearing more and more from us in the next few months.


Hope you enjoy reading,

Michael Johnston (Founder).


Michael Johnston Founder Zelo-min


CEO & Founder of Zelo, Fed Enterprise & The North Leeds Food Festival.

I sift through scientific research to write about Productivity, Wellbeing & Fulfilment.

Background: I’m a graduate of Economics at The University of Manchester. Since then I’ve worked in Insurance at a large bank before leaving to set up Fed Enterprise and The North Leeds Food Festival. I’m a bit of a Digital Nomad having worked around the world in the past six years. I have a deep passion for Productivity & Wellbeing; this is what has led me to setting up Zelo. I’m on a mission to help people get the most of their days and to encourage people to look after their mental health. I’m doing this by simplifying scientific research and turning it into easy-to-use resources.

I’m always happy to hear stories of how the blog may have impacted you. If you have any questions at all, please get in contact at .
