Things I Love
At the risk of being too hipster, here’s a convenient little device to hone your skill at making coffee by the pour-over method.
Why pour-over? Think of it as 3 minutes of meditation and focus. And the reward is a nice cup of coffee, which all know Is fuel for productivity. I’ve used this for a few months now, especially during the colder months of Florida, and appreciate the intentional process of making coffee. I also find the Fellow products very stylish and worthy of being on my kitchen counter.

A bit pricey at $179, but rated one of the top speakers for streaming by Wirecutter. Stream meditation sessions from Headspace or simply listen to your playlist anytime in the house.
Why this one over the multitude of wireless and bluetooth enabled speakers, like Amazon’s Echo, Apple’s Homepod, or BOSE? Bottom line, most important aspect is GREAT sound quality. All the other features like being “smart” is secondary (or maybe even unwanted because it’s always listening). Lastly, I want to walk into the room and be positively reminded that it’s a great sounding and great looking speaker, with potential to be expanded for surround sound purposes.

I didn’t want to buy tiny earbuds for fear of losing them and wasting all that money. Finally convinced myself to get these when I saw them on flash sale for under $30. Love these now because the case itself is a charging station, so the buds are ALWAYS fully charged when I take them out of the case. No more cords + easy pairing = more productivity! (Amazon, $50)

Too many cords? So get a cord divider bag and keep it all organized! My friends got me this and it worked like a charm.
There are tons of cord organizing bags out there, and the Wirecutter even does a review for this specifically. I’m just saying for what you need it to do, this bag does not disappoint. The orange color makes it just slightly more noticeable, in case it’s buried in your bag, and it’s simple enough that it doesn’t have excess weight.
Available on Amazon for under $12, and there’s even a coupon for it right now!

WHY? Been using this for years after the Wirecutter.com recommendation. Takes 24 hours to make a perfect batch of cold brew coffee, and save money in the long run.OXO Cold Brew maker
WHY? Now that Disney has acquired the rights to X-Men, I see that Marvel comics has rebooted the comic books with a great creative team. Jump in now and see your favorites like Wolvie, Professor X, and Magneto.X-Men comics
WHY? Absolutely mind blowing to hear this side of human history. Contemplate with fresh eyes why our society is now the way it is, and better understand the way we are. Download the app, link to your library, and hopefully listen for free.Sapiens
WHY? I wear them at home to stay comfy, but also when I’m traveling on a flight. Breathable, stylish, and has a hidden security pocket for important docs. And FYI, the term “joggers” implies the pant legs are more form fitting than regular sweatpants. And now you know.
