2017 Holidays

Keep current with events

Let’s admit it: some of us are more about keeping up with the Kardashians than keeping up with current events. Or, more commonly, our busy schedules of work and family commitments leave us little to no time whatsoever to pay attention to the happenings outside of our immediate worlds. 

Point in case, closerlooker Zipporah Porton, who juggles being an amazing creative and a mother of two, looks to stay sharper in the new year by staying on top of current events. 

“I can tell you my son’s weight and height on any given day, but I may have missed what’s going on in my own city. Sports, politics, news, entertainment; I’m thirsty for all of it. I just recently got a new phone, and it came with some random app called “briefing” that helps me stay somewhat more in tune with what’s going on in the world. I want to keep that up in 2018.” - Zipporah Porton, Associate Creative Director

We took a brief poll, and as it turns out, we all have different ways we stay connected to the outside world. In our attempt to help us help each other, we hope these tips help you, too

Sign up for daily or weekly newsletters

So many news and industry sites, so little time. Many of us find it helpful to get our news or trends in one place and subscribe to news aggregators like The Skimm or daily or weekly newsletters from our favorite industry sites like Fast Company or Daily Carnage. 

Take the news to go

From listening to local stations on the NPR app to catching up on news sites on the train, many of us find it easy to make keeping up with current events on our commutes.

Have a great tip for keeping current with what’s going on in the world? Tweet us your #EvenBetter2018 idea to @closerlookinc, and we’ll add it to our list.
