Email newsletters for 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 favorite regular newsletters to read each morning for news, politics and inspiration. For more inspiration, head here for our favorite websites—and happy scrolling!

1. The Daily Good

We may be biased, but we are big fans of our daily newsletter, The Daily Good, a 30-second newsletter delivered to your inbox daily with soothing playlists, sustainable recipes and DIYs, inspiring articles, and more. Curated with love by The Good Trade team, we hope all our readers will add The Daily Good to their list of morning newsletters.

11. Hung Up

When Hunter Harris was an entertainment writer for Vulture, she spent her days hilariously and honestly writing about movies, music, pop culture, and her own personal obsessions. The latter is what has since inspired her weekly newsletter Hung Up. Its title refers to those “preoccupations we just can’t seem to get out from under” (you know, our hang-ups). Launched in November 2020, Hung Up will be filled with essays, interviews, recommendations, reviews, and more.
