Recently my life has been filled podcasts and even more podcasts, and I don’t regret it one little bit. Nevertheless, I was a tad late jumping onto the podcast bandwagon, for those of you who’ve heard of or even listened to podcasts yourself, you’ll know they’ve been around for many, many years. And they’ve been developed and put into mainstream apps such as the one I’ll be talking about today, Spotify.
To give you a little bit of background on my journey into listening to podcasts, I was interested mainly because many of the YouTubers I watch, a lot of them have a focus on self-care, self-development and self-growth which is exactly what I love posting about, and they would link, as any YouTuber would do, their own favourite podcasts or ones that they believed were worth listening to. Except most of the time, you have to pay to listen to them, which as a university student isn’t really the first place I’d spend my money.
Aside from the main motivation which was from the YouTube community itself, if you’ve read my March Goals blog post, you’ll know that one of my goals is to immerse myself into listening to podcasts, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing (it takes everything in me to stop binge listening to these!!). And the best thing I’ve found is that you can listen to them for free AND download them to listen to offline, all in Spotify. (I’m not all being sponsored by Spotify to talk about this). Once I found out about this gloriousness, I jumped in and found a few of my favourite ones that I’ve been listening to these past two months.
Educational & Learning
At first, this category in Spotify I was a bit reluctant to click on, but I was pleasantly surprised not only by the variety that was available but the fact that I found two podcasts I absolutely fell in love with. And what’s even better is that this simple act of finding what I was interested in, I was accomplishing my 2018 Goals & being more intentional of what I was consuming.
Spiritual & Mental Health
This was the first category I found myself exploring, which comes as no surprise to me or even to anyone else, I am incredibly fond of bettering my own mental health and taking steps I need to achieve this. Two months in and it’s become a huge part of my daily life, enabling me to become more proactive and accomplish what I need to accomplish.
These four podcasts, in particular, have helped me learn things about myself, about history and about the world around me that I never knew before. They provided me with simple tips and tricks I’ve already implemented to enable me to live a rich and purposeful life, and for that, I couldn’t be more grateful!!
