Five Faves: Websites To Make You Feel Better

vlog final

At the end of each month we share five of our favorite things to UP the AWESOME in your life!

This week, we’re sharing five fave websites we visit that make us feel better.

It’s never really a convenient time to have a bad moment, or a bad day, but there are some days where it feels like way too much to deal with. But when you’re at your desk at work, for example, it’s not exactly the best time to feel like you’re going to have a mental breakdown, yet that’s often where a lot of our feelings of overwhelm occur- right here, in front of our computers.

So in those moments where we find ourselves feeling stressed out, or bummed out, yet not able to escape from the routine of the day to go for a walk out in nature or meet up with a friend or do the other things you know would cheer you up, that’s when it’s the perfect time to turn online to get yourself out of a funk

In today’s Maven Minutes we share 5 websites we love that give us a new perspective, make us laugh, give us insights and help us turn those droopy days around:

Here are our Five Fave websites to pick us up when we’re feeling low:

1. Notes From The Universe

2. Tiny Buddha (which we’re beyond thrilled to have been featured on last week! We weren’t expecting it to run until March, so it  was a special surprise!)

3. McSweeney’s Open Letters

4. Super Soul Sunday

5. The Moth (using the Stitcher app)

Let us know what your fave websites are to make you feel better in the comments- the more resources we have to turn to, the better!

    Thank you so much for reminding me about Mike Dooley and The Notes from the Universe. I had been getting them for years and lost heaps of connections recently when I changed email addresses!
    Now to go check out the others!
    MWAH!

    • Aren’t they so great, Notes from the Universe, that is? Jena turned me on to them and I just LOVE receiving them. They make my morning feel a little more awesome! Glad you’re reconnected with them! – Jen

    I had to come back and say I’ve started listening to The Moth and now I’m addicted! The Moth can also be found in the podcasts section in iTunes. Love it!

    • Hi (again) Ericka!
      I love the Moth too! That was one of my contribution to the Five Faves video because I can always count on a Moth podcast to make me feel a little more alive, engaged, interested and I usually laugh at least a little too. Glad you’re enjoying it too, Ericka! – Jen
