Practically Deliberate is a must-read for anyone hoping to live a more intentional, joyful life.
Charles Duhigg's book, The Power of Habit, not only is a fascinating read, but it greatly influenced How to Break Up With Your Phone. I can't wait to read his Substack.
I am not a horror fan. In fact, I don't even really like watching movies IN GENERAL. But my brilliant friend Eleanor Johnson writes a Substack about feminism and horror that is so well written and interesting that I read every post, even though I will never (and I mean NEVER) watch any of the movies that she writes about. It's that interesting. So if you're a horror fan, you definitely should subscribe. And if you're not, well, maybe you should, too!
Tara's newsletter makes me laugh AND feel less alone. All at the same time. Highly recommend!
I loved Katherine's book (Childhood Unplugged) and I love her Substack, too! I highly recommend it to anyone striving to achieve screen/life balance for themself and their family.
Are you worried about kids, social media, and smartphones? Then you need to read Jon Haidt's Substack. He & his collaborators make the case that social media is a leading contributor to the teen mental health crisis, and provide suggestions for what we can do about it.
Annie Duke's newest book, QUIT: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away, Thinking in Bet, and How To Decide, has had a huge impact on my own decision-making process—and has made me realize that, far from being irresponsible, quitting your obligations to other people can actually be a way to recommit to yourself.
