Would love to learn about the products that help you get the day started. 🌅
- Headspace starts my day off on the right foot. I was never one to meditate - always thought it was a little weird - but this helped get me started and make the process way smoother. I wake up, sit on the floor and listen.
- I like to read the latest articles on Medium while I'm waking up. I find it relaxing and the content is more thoughtful than reading the news (which is usually inflammatory, always negative and sometimes fake).
- I love to learn something new, so it's obvious what site to go.This is something I will do after checking the headlines.Yep, I don't know how it happened, but I find myself checking the weather first (necessity for walking my dog first thing in the morning) and then checking Product Hunt. Every morning. It helps me start the day inspired and invigorated. Seeing teams of one or only a few people put something great into the world gives me a healthy morning boost. I think it works as sort of an accomplishment cue, too. "Dang, this person launched this great app today. And this app started as just an idea some other day. I wonder what I can do today." I know it's kinda cheesy, but that's the dialog that runs through my head when I see something I like on Product Hunt.
- For quiet mornings and fresh starts! I can make a wonderful start with a guided meditation <3
- Listening great business & entrepreneurship podcasts every morning.
- Now, this is going to be biased but checking my social media monitoring projects is what I start my day with, alongside checking my mail. As a community manager for our product, I have to stay on top of the relevant mentions, whether they appear on social media or blogs or news sites. Considering we live in different timezones, checking those notifications is a must every morning in case some negative comments were posted overnight. It's obviously important to reply to the positive ones, too, but the negative ones are the ones that need to be taken care of in the first place.
- Use this app in the morning for a 5 minute guided meditation to be able to start the day on the right foot. (But also in the evening to be able to fall asleep after a long day in front of the blue screen)Every day includes a session in Insight TImer (520 days consecutively so far). The only apps I reach for before it is Sleep Cycle (if I'm tracking that night) or Elite HRV if I'm looking for a bead on my "readiness" for the day.
