Podcasts - the perfect thing to listen to on your commute (if anyone does that anymore!), during a run or walk or to have on in the background while you cook. I love a good mix of informative, calming and hot topic podcasts to keep me up to date with what’s happening in the world plus the most up to date information on wellness and sustainability.
Podcasts can be a bit marmite – some people love them, others don’t see the appeal. I see them as a soundtrack to my day – a little bit here and there, something to dip in and out of. An opportunity to increase my knowledge or tune out while I work. The one time in my day that there are no visuals so we can imagine and build a world around the story or discussion.
There are so many podcasts available, covering all sorts of things, I’ve listed a few of my favourites but they change daily so no doubt there will be another update soon! So grab your ear pods and see if anything takes your fancy:
Health and Wellbeing:
Small Things Often – very quick (like 3 minutes quick!) updates from the Gottoman Institute on things to support positive relationships
Feel Better, Live More – Dr Rangan Chatterjee meets health experts and goes in depth on all things health
Happy Place – Fearne Cotton talks mental health with experts and celebrities
Root and Rise – Yoga teacher Lucy Victoria Jackson has such a calming voice and gentle feel to her conversations with fellow yogi’s and wellness professionals. A real treat.
The Guilty Feminist – part discussion, part stand-up but always entertaining
Being Well – Exploring how we can become happier, build inner strength and live our best life
How to Fail – Elizabeth Day speaks to some of the most successful people about their failures and what they have learnt from them. Sounds a bit depressing, it really is not!
Pressing Pause – another short and sweet selection of topics on self-improvement and self-worth
Table Manners with Jessie Ware – like having dinner with your best friend and her mum!
The High Low – listening to two best friends talking about popular topics, books and news
The Adam Buxton Podcast – Ramble chats with the great and the good covering everything from music, film, books to life!
Let me know what you love, ones I’ve missed and if there is anything I should have a listen to!
