I’m currently obsessed with podcasts.
And at the moment I listen to podcasts pretty much every day.
I listen to them instead of watching TV, or when I go for a walk, or while I’m in the car or on public transport, when doing stuff around the house (like cleaning or cooking) or when I’m working on the computer.
I find them to be entertaining, as well as inspiring and useful.
So if you’re looking for some inspiring podcasts to listen to, here are my picks…
“Honest chat with change instigators and compelling creators breaking the cycle of convention and redefining success one brave mission at a time. Each episode reveals the lesser-told journey of success and explores what it really takes to lead an extraordinary existence. Tune in for lessons on how to instigate an lead a movement that matters; how to grow and escalate your life after failure; and how to inject more meaning, connection and resilience into your life and business. We explore all the juicy stuff including failure, change, motivation, relationships, leadership, entrepreneurship, habits and more.”
This is my go-to podcast when I want to feel inspired. Think super juicy conversations that are so real, honest and transparent and Lucy asks her guests some really incredible questions. I tend to write a heaps of notes in my phone when listening to this podcast as the episodes are always super insightful.

This podcast is awesome and when I first discovered it I binge listened to SO many episodes. The episodes do exactly what the description says they are designed to… They are uplifting, informative, inspirational, and I always find them super interesting. There are new episodes each week and at the moment there are 88 inspirational episodes, which I highly recommend you dive into…

“Gretchen Rubin is HAPPIER, and she wants you to be happier too.

I loved The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin so I was pretty excited when I found this podcast — and I really enjoy it. I love the conversational feel of these episodes and rapport between Gretchen and her sister Liz. The episodes are about how to incorporate habits into your everyday life to make you happier. Each episode contains really useful tips that you can easily try out in your own life and I love the ‘try this at home’ suggestions.
