If you are anything like me, you probably lead a very busy life. In the past week or so I have gone back to listening to self-improvement Podcasts. I was looking for a way to boost my positivity without having to read more articles and books. I wanted something that was quick and easy and that would be easy to fit into my schedule. Podcasts are perfect. They vary in length but can be so insightful.
Now before I go any further I do have to point out that I don’t listen to podcasts when I’m working. I can’t, because I need my focus on my work and that is where my work playlist on Spotify comes in. I have found in the past that if I listen to podcasts or seminars when I am trying to focus, I just get distracted and don’t retain the information. My answer to this is to listen to podcasts in the morning when I am getting my children ready for school. They are so easy to pop on when I am making lunches and breakfast. I can listen to them and get everything I need to do done.
My Top Self-Improvement Podcasts for 2016
Hay House: I love the Hay House podcasts. There are few different ones but my favorite are the I Can Do It conference talks or the Hay House World Summit podcasts. These are 10 to 30 minute pieces from live talks and I find them so inspiring. They also help me to find new authors and speakers to follow. These podcasts do tend to require more attention and if it is something that is really inspiring I will listen to it while I am walking on my treadmill so that I can give my undivided attention. Searching Hay House on iTunes will bring you up a number of podcasts to subscribe to. If you put Hay House into the search bar at http://www.podcastchart.com/ you will get a full list of shows to follow.
The Daily Boost: http://motivationtomove.com/podcasts/daily-boost-podcast/ – I really enjoy listening to Scott while I am getting the school lunches ready each morning. He has such a vibrant and uplifting energy and I find myself bouncing around the kitchen in such high spirits. He is an excellent motivator and I can see why his show has been around for so long. This morning he was saying that he had recorded over 3,000 podcasts. That’s a lot. I love that his segments are only 10 to 15 minutes also which means I always have time to tune in.
The Chalene Show: http://www.chalenejohnson.com/podcast/ – Chalene is another podcast that I have just recently started listening to. She is another very vibrant and uplifting person and I do feel I will learn a great deal from her shows. She is realistic and very down to earth, so again she resonates with me. I have only listened to two of her podcasts so far, so I can’t really say too much, but if you are looking for a female to inspire you, she could be the one.
