4 Monthly Subscriptions I Can’t Live Without

There are a lot of monthly subscriptions out there that can be very useful in your daily life. It can be tough to decide which ones to sign up for, but I’ve narrowed it down to my top five favorites. These subscriptions will help you stay organized, productive, and healthy! Keep reading for more information about each one


Headspace

First on my list is a subscription to the meditation app Headspace. This app has helped me reduce stress and anxiety, and it’s only ten minutes a day. I highly recommend it for anyone who struggles with mental health issues or just wants to relax more.

If you think that meditation is only for hippies or religious people, think again! Meditation helps you to sleep better, increases productivity, and makes you feel more relaxed. Personally, I use Headspace every morning for around 10 minutes and really noticed how I started to sleep better and just have a better mood. Headspace is a secular app that anyone can use. By the way, The subscription costs $5/month, but it’s worth it to me because it’s helped me so much.

Medium

Yep, that’s right, the second subscription on this list is Medium. Medium is a great way to stay up-to-date on all the latest news and opinions, and I can’t imagine my life without it. I read other articles every day and write my own too as often as I only can, like this one!

You can follow your favorite writers and publications, and you’ll never miss an article. I always find something interesting to read on Medium, and I’m sure you will too.

I love Medium because it’s a great way to connect with other writers and thinkers. I’ve made some great friends here, and I’ve also learned a lot from reading other people’s articles. If you’re interested in writing or just want to learn more about what’s going on in the world, I recommend signing up for Medium. Costing is also $5/month

Skillshare

Next is Skillshare, a platform where you can learn just about anything. I’ve taken classes on everything from photography to web development, and I’ve found them all to be very helpful. If you’re looking to improve your skills or learn something new, Skillshare is the perfect subscription for you.

I’m always trying to learn new things, and Skillshare has helped me do that. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their skills or just learn something new. Classes are only $15/month, so it’s a great deal too!

Spotify Premium

If you’re a music lover like me, then Spotify Premium is a must-have. With this subscription, you can listen to any song you want without ads, and you can even download songs for offline listening. It’s great for long car rides or working out at the gym.

I love to work with music and feel more productive while listening to my favorites. So, if you are like me, Spotify Premium is perfect for you! The subscription costs $5/month.


Conclusion

Those are my four favorite monthly subscriptions! I hope you found this list helpful. Do you have any subscriptions that you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading!

I think since Dev and hashnode like platforms have launched, the developer community is shifted towards these platforms for writing. But medium still have some of the best articles including some big techs engineering blogs.

Yep, I personally love to write on Medium too. I think Dev is more technical, and Medium is for everyone

Really great subscriptions.

First, I like the fact, that those are all subscriptions for your growth and wellbeing. Most people would have like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime on their list (not that it's bad, just a matter of priority).

If you're into listening audiobook I would add Audible. I have it since 3 years and listening to an audiobook every month. I like reading, but during walking or training it's nice to pick up some knowledge.
