I hate watching the news. Hate it.
I feel like most of the time it just brings me down. Until early last year, I purposely avoided all major news outlets. This was super helpful to shield myself from the media overkill and negativity. Unfortunately, it also left me ignorant and uninformed about the world around me.
Until one day when a friend of mine started jabbering on about The Daily Skimm. I honestly had no idea what it was or what was so great about it. I don’t read the news I thought, so there is no reason for me to check it out. Curiosity got the best of me of course and I ended up heading to their website. I entered my email address and found out what all the hype was about the next morning.
To break it down, the Daily Skimm is in fact a news source. However, the clever way it is broken down and delivered makes you feel like you aren’t reading the news at all. In the past if I wanted to learn about what was going on in the world, I would have to listen to an hour of news with negative images and tones. My other option was to head to a website and be bombarded with articles that to be quite honest would lose my interest by the second paragraph.
I Catch Up Quickly
Instead, each morning when I arrive at the office I grab my coffee and take about five minutes to catch up on everything important. Five minutes of my time and I actually feel smarter. In the past while at social gatherings I would just avoid talking about world news and politics. Before I started reading The Skimm my only option would be to regurgitate something I had read on Facebook. Just some advice, in that scenario it is just better to keep your mouth shut.
I wanted to share my love of The Daily Skimm with my readers so that you too can be informed. Get up to date with what is going on in the world. When Brexit was pending, guess who knew enough about it to talk about it and sound like I knew what was going on. That is right, little oh me. You can be just as informed as I am as well. Just sign up today and get The Skimm delivered to your inbox starting tomorrow morning. You can give me all your thanks below by letting me know how much you love it.
