Daily Digest

Read news only once.

We are constantly checking our news feeds (usually on our phones), and it's known that's not good for our health.

A good habit to form is to reduce the frequency at which we read the news (including "not really news" like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.), but that's not very easy when the devices we're using are built to keep us mindlessly engaged.

So you can try to start a routine where you set aside a time in the day to receive and read the news once per day, and no more.

Delete all your apps and get your news from only one source. A daily digest.

Your overall health should improve greatly with such a good habit.

Focusd helps with that, and it's only $10 / year.

How does Focusd help?

By receiving a single email with "the news" per day, you are able to decide when to create a time-block to read the news, and not need to check it again on that day.

Try it out. You'll see it's a great new habit.

Focusd turns your RSS feeds into a Daily Digest:

  • Choose the time of the day to get the digest
  • No more interruptions throughout the day
  • Read when you want, how you want

How does it work?

You get an email every day with the titles and links to the new articles, and that's it.

How much does it cost?

$10 / year for up to 20 feeds.

(if you want more, let me know)

But this isn't really a reader app, it's just my email and browser!

Exactly! Aren't those powerful?
