One of my girlfriend’s recently introduced me to the joys of podcast listening; I know, I’ve been living under a rock… In my defense, along with everything that I do, I could not foresee that listening to podcasts would interest a time – poor me… BUT boy oh boy was I was wrong.
I have actually found listening to podcasts such a relaxing activity, like reading a really great book but it takes much-less energy to do so. I particularly like to listen to podcasts when I’m out walking our dog Daphne (I only wear one headphone so that I don’t get run over) and whilst I’m cooking the dinner. Can I just say, it is the best way to relax and unwind… who knew this already??
- NO 1. FOR A GOOD LIFE DISTRACTION (because we all need those every now and then)
Listen to Serial and Undisclosed… I have to warn you, these are very addictive podcasts to listen to and I found each episode, so very difficult to put down. Serial and Undisclosed (best listened to in that order) is about a teenage murder that happened in Boston back in 1999, such a distraction… should you be wanting one?
- NO 2. HAPPINESS AND LIFESTYLE BIZ
I also quite liked listening to Happier with Gretchin Rubin… this podcast is all about tips to live a happy life, delivered in a fun, kind of “easy listening” way. It’s perfect listening for a walk and Happier is actually where the inspiration for next weeks post 8 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR EVERYDAY HAPPIER, AT HOME came from.
- NO 3. EXPANDING CREATIVITY
I have also just subscribed to a Food Photography & Styling podcast which I’m super keen to listen to.
- NO 4. NEEDING TO SLOW DOWN
The Slow Home PODCAST with Brooke McAlary… Brooke is a blogger that I’ve followed for a couple of years now, maybe you know of her too? My life often feels crazy busy so I’m thinking its high time I listened to this one too. And lastly
- NO 5. ENTREPRENEURIAL / SMALL BUSINESS TOOL’S
Karlosophies – Stories Behind Success… because I enjoy listening to stories, hearing how others achieve good things and overcome their fears. I also know that a good career motivator can never go astray!
Do you like to listen to podcasts? Do you have any favourites you would recommend to us all?? Now that I’m a podcast expert (ha!), I’m looking forward to sharing more interesting, design, life – inspired based podcasts with you as I discover them.
