For some reason, this morning I decided to wake up an hour before my alarm clock went off, make a cup of coffee, and read some of my “read later” bookmarks. This was an attempt to start my morning on a calm note, rather than my super efficient, Im-Going-To-Be-Late-But-I-Still-Need-Coffee-First routine. The coffee was new (Cuvee’s Kumurembe) and, as the cats huddled around me, I read a post about happiness on Medium. Erin Frey, a community director for LiftApp, wrote about 10 Habits of Happiness. Not only was this an enjoyable post, it also inspired me to write about what apps or services improve my life. I should preface this list, by saying that I use Google Chrome more than any other browser installed on my computer or phone, both Apple devices. So, while it seems that many are only supported by Google Chrome, most of these have separate apps or services available. Now that that’s out of the way, here’s a list or two:

As I collected links for this post, I looked up Erin’s Medium page, and found she has a lot more articles related to happiness, productivity, and more. Check it out.
