By Tomas Laurinavicius • Issue #2 • View online
Hello,
Hope you’re well.
I’ve signed two more clients and will be helping them with content strategy and SEO. Busy times!
Other than that, I’m slowly migrating this newsletter to Revue to serve you better.
Here’s an observation.
Recently, I stopped meditating and started to feel overwhelmed. I identified that my anxiety was coming mostly from social media. I struggle to focus and get things done.
Earlier this year, I’ve done the 30-day social media detox, and I’m strongly considering doing it again. Also, meditating more.
What’s your relationship with social media?
Welcome to another edition of Life Designed where I share the knowledge and resources to help you live better.
Let’s dive in.

This week, the newsletter is supported by the good people at Neybox, the creators of health and fitness apps.
Today is a beautiful health and fitness tracker which allows you to create a personalized dashboard for each habit. Think of it as your daily masterplan. Some of its features include milestones, journals, to-do lists, and photo galleries. It’s available for free on iOS.
Airtable is the friendly database that lets you organize anything you can imagine. It’s like a child of Trello and Google Docs.
Jaron Lanier talks about Facebook, YouTube, Google and how the tech and social media giants are using algorithms to record data about their users. It’s how internet algorithms shape how we see the world and what we’re shown online.
Here’s an interesting tool. A collaborative site that allows you to compare and contrast the country you live in with other countries around the world.
In the age of spam, it’s crucial to keep your email list clean. Norbert claims to reduce bounce rates by 98%. It’s a paid but cheap service.
The decisions we spend the most time on are rarely the most important ones. Not all decisions need the same process.
A quick tool by content marketing powerhouse, HubSpot to help you come up with hundreds of blog ideas.
Here’s an incredible guide to making real money as a writer and social media influencer. I’ll be digging into this piece and applying to my own business.
The Henley Passport Index (HPI) is a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom for their citizens. The site provides a ranking of the 199 passports of the world according to the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free. I’m happy to see Lithuanian passport ranked 10th globally.
