How do you start your day? Chances are that between opening your eyes, getting out of bed, heading for a cup of coffee and brushing your teeth, you're part of the majority of people who check their email within 15 minutes of the alarm clock sounding. It's a pretty intense way to begin the day, so we thought we'd share some daily email newsletters that lift our spirits, make us wiser, and give us the positive energy needed to tackle a long day's work. The best part is that you never stop learning.

3. The Daily Overview
The Daily Overview posits that it is not enough for us to simply admire the novel aesthetics of satellite imagery. The medium of aerial photography is a chance for us to both marvel at the beauty we have created in the world, and that which we have destroyed. In other words, it asks us to comprehend the magnitude of our responsibility to preserve and protect the planet we call home.
