Starting My Day with Positivity!

So I know I am a little late to the game but I have just discovered podcasts. Wow! Where have I been for the last couple of years? Listening to podcasts has completely changed my day. Now, I can’t wait to take a drive, go for a walk or just get up early, sit in front of my fireplace and listen to a podcast. It has been truly been an amazing transformation in my life. I return from a walk or a drive feeling inspired and ready to tackle my day. So what have I been listening to recently…well here are my favorite current podcasts:

Deliciously Ella The Podcast

I have been following Deliciously Ella on Instagram for the last year. My sister gave me her cookbook last Christmas and I have totally fallen in love with Ella and her husband her Matt. This past summer they started a podcast and every week I couldn’t wait until Tuesday so that I could jump in my car, drive to work and listen to their insightful interviews. Ella and Matt interview a diverse range of guest speakers from entrepreneurs to doctors, researchers and scientists. It’s fascinating to learn more about our diets, health and how our choices are affected the planet. As a result of listening to this podcast, I now have a weekly meat free day and have tried to reduce food waste (listen to the episode about food waste and you will join me! )

Super Soul Conversations with Oprah

I just have to say this - Oprah is an amazing interviewer. Wow! Every time I listen to her, I am in awe of her ability to draw our her guest speakers, ask the tough questions and focus on what’s important. With so many episodes and such a diverse range of guests, there is something for everyone. I personally loved the following episodes:

  • Jon Zabat Zinn

  • Brene Brown

  • Paulo Coelho

  • Deepak Chopra

  • Howard Schultz

  • Pema Chodron

  • Sebastien Junger

This is how Oprah’s website describes her podcast: ‘All designed to light you, guide you through life’s big questions and help bring you one step closer to your best self.’ What’s not to love!

The Goal Digger by Jenna Kutcher

A friend of mine recently recommended this podcast to me. I have only listed to a couple if episodes but I am hooked. And thankfully I have about 200 episodes to catch up on! I love Jenna’s positivity, enthusiasm and her authentic desire to educate entrepreneurs. Jenna is easy to listen to and she makes her content interesting and engaging. This is first time that I genuinely want to listen to someone talking about business! If you have your own business or are thinking about starting your own business then you definitely need to subscribe to this podcast. Here is what Jenna has to say about her podcast:

The live-workshop style business podcast that is helping thousands redefine success and chase bolder dreams. You can train from the experts how to dig in, do the work, and tackle your biggest goals along the way.’
