The Washington Post has launched “What Day Is It?,” a newsletter series devoted to the perception of time and developing new experiences.
In this seven-day course, audience editor Steven Johnson will be guiding readers on how to establish a routine of normalcy by putting expert guidance to the test in his own life. Johnson will be sharing his personal experiments, insights from clinical psychologists and other experts, which would help readers conquer the perception of time that the pandemic has created for many people.
Newsletter editor Kelly Poe said:
“Life can feel on hold during the pandemic, making it difficult to structure a week and create routine. This newsletter will help readers create a daily reminder to reclaim their time and avoid getting stuck in covid inertia. Readers can sign up for the newsletter at any point, whenever they feel ready to kick off their seven-day commitment to regaining their time.”
Each day for a week, Johnson will highlight a different facet of daily life and explore techniques for spending time more meaningfully.
The newsletter will also feature relevant Post reporting and published studies in the field of time research.
