Lately doesn’t it seem like you can’t even keep up with the news?
Doesn’t it seem like sometimes you go to sleep at night and when you wake up a ton of stuff has happened?
Isn’t it really tough to keep watching the news and hearing horrible things and it just gets you down?
I’m an avid reader/subscriber to The Week, an online news source and weekly printed news magazine. I read the print version cover to cover and ALWAYS enter the joke contest every single week. I have won zero times so far but just saying.
The Week is a sister publication to Mental Floss, an online fun site with really really really interesting info about stuff and minimal clickbait. It actually used to be a magazine, my favorite magazine, and I subscribed to that too. Maybe there’ll be another post on that because I’m sorry, Mental Floss is awesome, should not have been cancelled, and I literally pay more than twice the cover price to buy old issues on ebay.
Anyways. The Week has a free daily email you can subscribe to called “10 Things You Need to Know Today“. It’s basically what it sounds like. There are 10 headlines, 10 short 2-3 sentence descriptions of the story, and (most importantly) a link to the credible news source.
I have tried several daily news sources and haven’t found anything as good as 10 Things You Need to Know Today. It’s the first thing I read every morning and often the best thing I read all day (unless I end up reading an old issue of Mental Floss at some point in the day! 😊)
The best part about it: There’s a similar email subscription they offer that’s a weekly Good News Newsletter email. The only complaint I have is that that doesn’t come out daily too!
Do yourself a favor and subscribe! Try it for just two weeks and I really think you’ll love it.
