The feeling of being enthralled is also a feeling in itself, isn’t it? And perhaps, the internet is your tool to get wondrous information, every day, every second.
To help you find some websites in this pool of internet, here are the top 5 life related websites that will encapture your mind and will leave you with bags of realizations:
Perhaps the best way to describe this site is in the words of, ‘This site, brings you back things that you didn’t know you were interested in until you are.‘ Founded in 2006 in the form of an email digest to just seven people, the website paved to become one of the archived sites of the Library Of Congress. Established by Maria Popova, it is maintained, written, and upgraded all by just Maria. As she says, she has no intern, no staff, no assistants, it is just one woman-labored website.
And truly, this website talks about life advice and she ingrains it with cultures, with a thousand amazing references of great people here and there, and grinds it into a nice cup of coffee with her understanding of we, humans. You can subscribe to her newsletter or be a frequent visitor at her site, but the information is sure to push you back for a second.
Probably, the people who know about School Of Life, know it more via its youtube channel, which has the same name itself. But it has a website too. It was founded by Alain De Bottom and Sophie. School Of Life, showers you information from coping anxiety and stress to engraving life advice in our heads, from motivating speeches to small little tips.
Their website also has a shop wherein they have made themselves and sell short therapy games to rewire our minds, card games to find connections, etc. School Of Life also provides verified therapy for couples, for individuals- all on a paid basis with the lowest therapy, the cost of 100 pounds a session. They also arrange workshops for making businesses more creative, more unique.
Whether you read their articles or you watch their videos, either way it works heaven!
‘I am writing about bad stuff because like good stuff- it just happens‘ – Nora Mclerny, from the book, ‘It’s Okay To Laugh, Crying Is Cool Too.’
Also, you probably might have known her via her podcasts and TED talks, but Nora Mclerny has her own website, Noraborealis. Nora had miscarried her baby, lost her husband and lost her father too, both in cancer, all just in a month. She talks about grief in a way people with the same pain want to here but somehow not everyone can relate.
On her website, she has articles talking of the little lessons she learned from the deaths and still learning, and also has a section to her podcast, ‘Terrible, Thanks for asking.‘ Just visit her website once, she will explain prosiac things in a way a bird will sing after long.

This site is incredible. It is a site answering those questions a child might pester you with and you yourself had them but never asked! It was founded back in 2001 and 20 years from then, they have been filling those gaps with archaeology to travel, entertainment to food, talking about its engrossing facts and thereby giving glimpses of history and present.
They have a section for big questions too! Mental Floss also gives numerous great pieces of advice related to a good job environment to how certain jobs work, and little life tips. It is really a floss, polishing our lives!
This website was an educational site of Bēhance which itself is a creative site for displaying and gazing at creative portfolios, but now 99U is collectively taken care of by Adobe and Behance.
