There are a lot of things that get into our inboxes without our wanting them there. So many Facebook notifications (and I was sure I’d turned my off!), salesy newsletters, bulk emails… if you’re like me, you might be on a listserv or two, as well. But there are also so many gems! There are lots of great newsletters that I like a lot but still don’t read every issue. What I am sharing here is my very short list of emails I open EVERY time one comes in. Sometimes I read them right away and sometimes I save them to savour the read. If you subscribe to one of these (or all of them) it may give you a whole new love for your inbox.
Do you always mean to start – or keep – a gratitude journal but never quite manage it? Happy Rambles almost does it all for you. You get a daily email asking, “What are you grateful for?” and all you have to do is reply, listing five things. It’s all stored for you. (Almost) instant gratitude journal!
Mike Dooley is an author several-times over and he’s also created these daily delights. Each day, you receive a personalized note from the universe. They’re so fun – and, often, so eerily “on.”
Stephanie St. Claire is a coach and “start-over strategist” in New York City. Foremost, though, she’s a writer and she publishes to inboxes. Her Diaries is the only paid email subscription I have – for good reason. It’s delicious and poignant and sexy and elegant too. Every two weeks, there’s a new diary entry and a window into a most interesting soul and life.
I can’t explain quite why but I find Ev’s daily notes fascinating. His style is highly edited and I find that, alone, interesting. (All the things he must choose to cut!) He conducts online “experiments” and “reports back.” It’s worth signing up to receive a few just to see what I’m talking about.
Question: What are your must-read emails? What am I missing? Tell me in the comments section below, pretty please.
