Five Inspiring Emails Worth Getting Every Day

Most days you’ll find me dodging a list - hitting unsubscribe on party invites from my underground days and the petitions that just won’t quit.

However, there are a few bright spots I look forward to in my inbox.

I subscribe to the following daily emails on purpose, and recommend them to friends looking to add perspective and positivity to their morning:

1 - TUT - Notes from the Universe

TUT was recommended to me by a former boss and mentor, right as I was returning from a transformational emotional intelligence training.

Go to the site. Type in your first and last name. Enter your life goals.

Each day you’ll receive a cleverly encouraging note, from the Universe. Reminding you of your power, your worth, and the positive energy available to propel you in the right direction.

2 - Seth Godin's Blog

Seth is a marketing expert I’ve been following for years, but his daily blogs are much more than business and branding advice. They touch on the importance of authenticity and mindfulness in a world that often encourages a race to the bottom.

3 - DailyOM

I seldom have the time to read each one, but occasionally there’s a headline from DailyOM that really catches me. And usually it’s right on time. Practicing Nonattachment and Letting Yourself Be Seen are just a few inspirations that hit subscribers' inboxes last week.
