Squarespace Note - I heard about this app on a podcast and have been using it like crazy. I was so excited about it, I even did a separate blog post about it. It basically takes a note (typed or dictated) and emails it to you, so you can review it at a later time. It is a very simple, clean interface. Highly recommended.


5 Minute Journal - I first heard of this journal app/tool from a Tim Ferriss podcast. I downloaded the app...which is a little pricey at $4.99 a few days ago and it has really helped me focus my daily intentions. There are two major sections you fill out each day.

  1. Morning: List three things you are grateful for followed by three things that will make this day great. There is also a place to enter your daily affirmation.
  2. Evening: List three amazing things that happened during the day followed by what would have made the day better. 

I do not know if it is the structure of it all that I really like or what. People close to me would probably say that is exactly why I like it.

Here are a couple of articles about the 5 Minute Journal -- 

  1. Five Minute Journal for iPhone Improves Your Mood In Moments A Day
  2. The Five Minute Journal Will Make You Happier

When people ask me "ooooh, what breed is that dog?" I now say "why it's a shelter dog! They are beautiful and awesome!" One of my volunteer friends found a wonderful article titled: Shelter Removes Breed Labels After Studies Shows They Unfairly Affect Dog Adoptions

My hope is that one day all shelters do this because it is unfair to all the wonderful dogs that reside there.
