I love listening to podcasts. They have been a total lifesaver for me. They keep me motivated and inspired and keep my brain learning (which is so important because some days it starts to feel like mush after talking to little kiddos all day!). The episodes are short and sweet and I usually listen to several a day while I’m going about my daily chores. It’s great because I feel like I am still using my brain but I am also still getting things done at the same time. Plus I’m still able to be present with my kids. Here are a few podcasts that are real gems and have changed my life for the better.
1.Power of Moms – I have listened to every single one of these podcasts and it has given me so many good ideas on how to be a better mother. I have learned and implemented so much from this podcast! I love this one.
2. Marvelous Mom’s Club – Kirsten Tyrell does a great job of helping moms get out of motherhood ruts by sharing uplifting and inspiring stories of moms. I love hearing how other moms have overcome hard things. This one is fun to listen to.
3. The School of Greatness – This one is so motivational. This podcast is hosted by a pro football player who got injured and was unable to play anymore. He went through a period of depression living on his sister’s couch. Then he realized there was still a lot he could do with his life. Now he interviews millionaires and Olympic athletes who all have inspiring stories of how they became so successful. It’s super interesting and inspiring.
4. Happier with Gretchin Rubin – I love the topic of happiness and I love Gretchin’s take on it. I absolutely loved her book, The Happiness Project. Her podcast is very creative and she has such an interesting way of looking at happiness and it always opens up my mind to new ideas. I love it.
5. This Is Your Life with Michael Hyatt – Michael Hyatt is such an inspiring business leader and he has a lot of experience and just a good perspective on life. I love his advice in all areas and I’m always left inspired after listening to his podcasts.
I use the Stitcher app (it’s free!) on my phone and it makes it really easy to listen to my favorite podcasts while I’m doing stuff around the house. Basically what I’m saying is podcasts are the best thing ever and if you aren’t listening to them, you should! It’s a game changer!
What are your favorite podcasts to listen to? I’m always on the lookout for more!
