Thanks to the rise of high-quality and curated newsletters from all around the world, it’s now possible to get a daily dose of inspiration, interesting news, and life lessons directly to your inbox without worrying about receiving boring or spam content.
I’m a big fan of newsletters, as they are a key part of my idea workflow and they also make my day funnier. Here’re some of my favorite newsletters that will certainly enrich your life.
1. Start your day with a little bit of everything
The Inside Daily Brief is packed with all the trends, news, and other links you need to be smart, informed, and ahead of the curve. Unlike other services, Inside Daily Brief provides only the news you want to be updated on — and all sorts of fun pop culture and entertainment bits too.
2. Increase your social media knowledge
Buffer’s daily newsletter is completely different from all the other social media newsletters. Along with great thoughts on social media and online marketing, you’ll learn what transparency means by reading about their amazing remote-working culture.
3. Learn more about science
Ed Young is a great and a talented science writer at The Atlantic and NatGeo’s Phenomena. Some of his latest articles reveal why some birds are losing their ability to fly and how a brain prosthetic is now allowing a paralyzed man to move his hand again. If you don’t have time to peruse all of his posts, make sure to subscribe to his newsletter.
4. Sick of the old stock photo? Here’s your answer!
If you are already deep inside the never-ending tunnel of the same old stock photos, the Death to Stock Photo newsletter is the light at the end of it. Every month, you’ll receive a great collection of photos and inspiration based on a specific topic.
5. The media junkie’s ultimate solution

Wait but why is the place to learn more about science and things like the “gratification monkey” we all have inside our brain. Who says that science can’t be highly entertaining and funny to read?
