According to a recent report, the average office worker sends or receives a whopping 121 emails a day. 121 emails! It’s no surprise that many are completely unnecessary and bog us down. But what about the useful ones? Today’s post shares three of the best email newsletters.
These subscriptions are informative, enlightening, or uplifting. They can really start your day off on the right foot, and over time, contribute to a healthier, stronger mindset.

Notes from the Universe
When my coach told me about Notes from the Universe, I fell in love with the idea.

After receiving them for the past 6 months, they are some of my favourite emails.
Now I Know
If you love to learn, Now I Know will be up your alley.
This is my newest subscription of the three, and I wish I had discovered it sooner. Now I Know shares “all sorts of interesting things” from history lessons to human biology theories to crazy stories and everything in between.
Here’s an excerpt from one of my favourites:
