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.
