How To Build A Morning and/or Evening Routine Using Our Favorite Apps »
Routines are a funny thing. We all have them — even if they’re not optimal they can be a great way to improve your day! My morning and evening routines are always evolving, as is how I track what it’s in them.

A Big Update to Our Best Habit Tracking App Article »
This week, we updated our best habit tracking app pick for 2021 — and it’s a doozy.
The updated article now has over 6,000 words in an increased effort to help you find the perfect habit tracker for you. It’s only been a year, but a lot has happened.

Tiffany White’s Mac, iPhone, and iPad Development Setup »
I am running a 2018 Mac Mini with an Intel i5 3.0ghz processor and 16 gigs of RAM. I have it connected to an Asus 28″ and an LG 24″ 4K monitor, a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse, and a WASD Cherry MX Blue mechanical keyboard with custom keycaps. I am also using a StreamDeck to launch different macros and smart home things, though I should probably use it more. And for conferencing and screencasts, I am using a Logitech C920 Webcam, a Heil PR40 Mic, and HiFiMan 4xx Planar Magnetic, open-back headphones from Drop.
