I have been saying for a while now that the world will keep spinning even if you go ahead and live your life.
One of the ways I am able to follow this advice is by getting The Skimm in my inbox.
The Skimm is a news summary service that was started by two young women name Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin.
They use reputable news sources to learn about what is going on in the world and then summarize it for me in an email in my inbox. The result is a quick read the timely and to the point.
As a sensitive person, who often feels bombarded by sensationalism instead of informed by it, I so appreciate The Skimm.
They have a way of delivering even the worst news in a way that makes it digestible and not terrifying.
They don’t use a lot of the typical jargon that other news outlets use, so I always feel like I’m being kept informed by a good friend.
If this sounds like something that might help you stop wasting time online and so you can stay focused on living your life, I hope you will try it.
If you do, please use my referral code, which I have included in the links. I don’t think I get anything except credit for referring folks, but I like credit. I’m not really interested in swag or any other incentives like that.
When I find something genuinely helpful to creative types, I like to share it. And I’ll keep doing this, as long as you think it’s helpful.
Thanks for reading and sharing!
When you take excellent care of yourself, you can live the most creative life possible. And getting The Skimm can certainly help manage news overload.
