Let’s redefine our morning routines.

One of our favorite ways to start our work day is to set aside 10-15 minutes as we settle in to our desks to read a handful of daily newsletters with informative, insightful, and encouraging content.

We've asked our readers {and each other!} what is missing when it comes to conscious content that inspires and informs us in our everyday lives. Not surprisingly, we've found women resonate with bite-sized, actionable content that is consciously aligned and aesthetically beautiful.  

Created especially for women, here are our 10 favorite daily newsletters to read each morning for news, politics and inspiration. 


// Daily Newsletters For Information //


The Skimm

A five-minute daily newsletter for women, The Skimm is one of our favorite morning digests for breaking news and to learn about what’s happening in the world. Read by the likes of Oprah, Shonda Rhimes, and Lena Dunham, The Skimm also includes investment tips, product recommendations, and interesting facts to boost your knowledge. And, for readers who just can’t get enough, (we know we can’t), the SkimmNotes app broadcasts ten-minute audio newsletters—a perfect addition to your morning commute.

The New York Times Morning Briefing

Want to wake up with the New York Times anywhere in the world? Subscribe to the Morning Briefing—a daily, real-time newsletter, updated throughout the morning, with happenings and breaking news specific to the reader's geographical location. Apart from helping you keep up with the latest current events, the Morning Briefing is also packed with quality reading lists, quick history lessons, and delicious recipes. 

Additionally, for readers who can't get enough of the Morning Briefing, we recommend subscribing to the Gender Letter. Also from the New York Times, it is sent out weekly and covers topics related to women, gender, and society. We especially adore the included illustrations by Franziska Barczyk.

The Broadsheet

Learn about and celebrate the world’s most powerful women with Fortune’s The Broadsheet. A daily newsletter curated by women and for a ‘broad’ audience (because women’s issues are not just women’s issues), The Broadsheet is for informed women who want to read stories about all the incredible females who are shattering glass ceilings around the globe.

The Daily Good

We may be biased, but we are big fans of our daily newsletter, The Daily Good, a 30 second visual read of everyday inspiration for the informed woman. You'll find social impact Instagram accounts to follow, feminist podcasts we love, our current wanderlust destinations and other inspirations just for women. Curated in-house by The Good Trade women, we hope all our readers will add The Daily Good to list of morning newsletters.

A short burst of joy delivered to your inbox each morning, Moments of Happiness by Gretchen Rubin is a brief newsletter containing an encouraging and memorable daily quote.

We think you will love them too!

Because I’m Addicted

Written by Los Angeles native Geri Hirsch, Because I’m Addicted is one of our favorite blogs for sustainable fashion and beauty tips, encouraging posts on wellness and womanhood, and the latest (and most delicious) healthy recipes. Her newsletter, Your Daily Dose, gives a brief rundown of recent content or includes a preview of her latest post. Hirsch also just had her first baby, so readers looking for further reading on pregnancy wellness and sustainable motherhood will especially want to subscribe.

Richard Rohr's Daily Meditation 

If you’re not already familiar with Franciscan friar Richard Rohr, we recommend listening to a few of his podcasts or reading one of his books on spirituality and meditation. Recognized globally for his spiritual teachings and work at the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, we love beginning the mornings with his Daily Meditation newsletter. Subscribe for inspiration, encouragement, and suggestions for taking deepening your meditation practice.

Poem of the Day

Do you ever need to pause and reset during your day? Maybe you need to take a few yoga breaths or read your favorite poem to help rejuvenate your soul? While it’s not a daily newsletter you can read, we love the Poem of the Day, a short audio recording by the Poetry Foundation. Featuring both classic and contemporary poetry delivered as a short audio clip link in your inbox, we find the Poem of the Day is perfect for helping us connect with our inner artist and creative spirit throughout the work week.
