Resolutions Revived

So if you’re like most people (myself included) you made resolutions for 2018. And similar to the rest of us, those good intentions and hope for the best have quickly faded.

Not so fast.

I’m here to help put a jolt into those grand ideas you had. In particular staying informed. There is SO much constantly happening in our world. Between the political climate, other countries, and our own struggles at home it can be hard to keep up. Today, I want to share how I try to keep up with what’s what every single day.

  1. TheSkimm

Every morning there is an email delivered to my inbox. This email contains EVERYTHING I need to know about what’s been going on. The best part is that it reads like a juicy email from my bff. It gives me background info when I need it, but also gets right to the point. Want to try it out for yourself? Sign up here; thank me later.

2. UpFirst

Every morning when I get up, up first is there, waiting for me. Similar to TheSkimm, but in podcast form. They give you enough back story to understand what's going on and what those implications might be without giving you information overload. Yes, I will acknowledge that NPR does lean slightly left (with BBC being the most unbiased news source), but for now, it's the best I can find. If you know of another one that leans slightly right, holla atcha girl - I want to make sure I stay balanced.

3. Planet Money/The Indicator

This too is an NPR podcast. Planet Money is a weekly podcast lasting about 20 minutes. The Indicator is about 6 minutes. Both of them explain financial or economic topics in a fun and interesting way. I have a finance degree, so I tend to nerd out about that kind of thing, but when you can manage to make those topics apply to real life things - think how tariffs will impact us or why plane tickets to certain places are so expensive.

In total, this daily routine ends up being about 30 minutes - most of which is done while I'm also driving or getting ready for work, so it doesn't really count, does it? Check them out, let me know what you think, and feel free to give me your own suggestions and feedback!
