Every day I teach somebody which tools & tech I use to keep myself happy and healthy. So here's my always up-to-date list for everyone to use.
If you can't measure it, you can't manage it. So after ten years of testing trackers like Fitbit, Garmin, Oura, and many more, I started with an only-Withings strategy this year. Their smart scale, fitness tracker, sleep mat, and BP monitor synchronize their data well into one helpful app. Less hassle and better-integrated data.
🎧 Listening Tools
The original AirPods and now the AirPods Pro, and Airpods Max are my favorite Apple goods. Mainly because they massively reduce the friction associated with listening to stuff. Thanks to my AirPods, I've listened to more podcasts and audiobooks than I would have without them. On my wishlist is the AirPods Max.
However, I use my Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro headphones for my music career, both when selecting and sorting tracks in my Recordbox software and DJing.
✍️ Writing Tools
When on the move I put my ideas and thoughts in Apple Notes, mostly via Siri.
I always have several variants of Moleskine notebooks on hand. Small ones when on the road and bigger ones on my kitchen table. I write with a MontBlanc Meisterstuck with dark, blue fillings, that I got as a gift from my then-girlfriend and used to sell my companies.
On my laptop, I use Grammarly, where notes become longer pieces. Grammarly helps me to smooth out and give the final shape. For posts on LinkedIn and Twitter, I find inspiration in Snazzy artificial intelligence and Canva for visuals.
For the podcast, I use this RØDECaster Pro bundle - which sounds like a million dollars.
