Wow, it has been a MINUTE since I last posted. It feels really damn good to be back I must say. For those few, but loyal, readers I do sincerely apologize. But here’s the thing, how could I write on a wellness blog when I wasn’t living a healthy, wellness filled life?!
Couple super quick life updates: about 2 months go, I got laid off. And it SUCKED! My confidence was crushed, motivation went out the door, and overall I just felt like crap. That trickled down into so many aspects of my life. My eating started to stray more towards comfort than health, my workouts were less and less inspiring, even my skincare routine was lacking.
But every once in a while a girl has got to reinvent herself. She’s got to brush off the old and frankly, get her shit together.
And let me just say, I’m not quite there yet, but I’m working on it!
One thing that’s been helping me through this time is podcasts. I’ve always been a fan, especially when I had long commutes to work, but lately they’ve been more than a way to pass the time. I’m learning, growing, developing, all from listening to the wise words of a few incredible people.
I’d love nothing more than for someone else to benefit from these amazing podcasts the way I have. There are a select few that have really changed my life, and in so many different aspects. We’ve got eating, confidence, time management, lifestyle tips, fitness, success stories, you name it.
So here they are, my top favorite must listen to podcasts! By category…
Lauryn Evarts Bosstick is one of my favorite people in the world. Her blog, The Skinny Confidential, is an encyclopedia of all things any young woman needs to know. And her podcast which she co-hosts with her husband is no different. They have an array of guests ranging from fitness gurus, to world famous dermatologists, to holistic health coaches, to gut health experts.
The Party in my Plants Podcast by Talia Pollock
A former stand up comic turned holistic health coach with a plant based culinary background, that’s Talia Pollock. Her plant based podcasts is riddled with tips and advice on how to make “eating plants not suck”! I may not be a vegan, or entirely plant based myself, but that doesn’t mean I don’t learn A TON from Talia and her guests. I’m constantly finding ways her episodes teach me something that carries into my personal eating.
Style Your Mind Podcast by Cara Alwill Leyba
Cara is the creator of the blog, The Champagne Diet, and the author of some INSANELY GOOD books that I honestly should write an entire post on because they’re that level of life changing. There’s something about Cara’s words that ignite a sense of confidence you never knew you had. Her podcast is filled with episodes on how to become a total girl boss. This podcast in particular really helped me through the layoff.
The GaryVee Audio Experience by Gary Vaynerchuk
It was actually tough the categorize this podcasts, because it really covers so much. But I feel like the overall gist of it is ways to be a more successful person in anything you do. Gary can be a bit intense, but he has SO MUCH knowledge to give.
The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes
This podcast is similar to GaryVee’s, but I feel like it’s a bit more wellness focused than success. But overall, lots of self help topics on how to be overall better, or greater! It’s got health, inspiration, business, relationships, just so many topics covered than are relatable to each and every person.
And there you have it! My top pics for podcasts that will make you a better person all around. I hope if you choose to give one of these a try you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
