While driving in the car, working from home, or making dinner for you or your family, podcasts can be a great resource for relaxation and self-help. Podcasts are informative, relatable, engaging, and you can always listen in whenever you have time. There are many genres of podcasts, so you can always find tips and tricks to help you in whatever stage of life you are in.

For Procrastination

If you struggle with procrastination and setting a negative connotation around it, then The Joy Of Procrastination is for you. This podcast helps reframe the idea of procrastination as something positive. By removing the shame that is commonly correlated with procrastination, Dean Jackson and Dan Sullivan help listeners develop tools for using procrastination in a positive way.

The podcast, Beyond the To-Do List, hosted by Erik Fisher talks with guests about productivity in order to live a meaningful life. In each episode, he takes a deep dive into why we are not meeting our goals at work and life and how we can implement productivity strategies to get unstuck and move forward.

For Making Major Life Changes

Making major life changes can be exciting, but also stressful and challenging. The podcast What it Takes shares stories of perseverance from some of the most famous visionaries and leaders of all time. These people share their stories of going through obstacles that have kept them from reaching their goals, but then explore their path in tackling these obstacles to live a more fulfilling life.

Another podcast that addresses life changes is the Tony Robbins Podcast. “Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one?” This is the most famous line from life and business strategist Tony Robbins. It’s also the foundation from which he has built The Tony Robbins Podcast, a weekly show that tackles major life changes related to business, health, finances, relationships, and more. Through interviews and stories from some of the most influential people in the world, Robbins gives listeners proven strategies and tactics for how to help live your best life.

For Forming New Habits

Forming good habits can be a challenging process, which is why listening to podcasts that focus on habit building can be beneficial. The Habit Coach With Ashdin Doctor helps encourage listeners to make permanent and healthy life changes. Each episode is centered around tips and motivation that encourage listeners to incorporate new habits that can impact their daily lives. If you don’t have an hour to listen to a podcast, then you are in luck because most of these episodes are around 10 minutes long.

Tiny Leaps, Big Changes helps encourage users to make small changes in their lives that will be able to lead to larger outcomes. Forming habits is very difficult, and that is why it is important to take “tiny leaps.” This podcast informs listeners that you will find more success if you do little things to get started with habit changing, rather than changing your whole life all at once. This podcast dives deep into the most common daily behaviors and looks at how those behaviors determine results, both positive and negative.

Not only can podcasts help us become better listeners, but they also allow us to use our imagination and apply messages and stories to our own lives. Due to all of the different genres and ideas circulating around, podcasts can fit anyone’s needs and desires. Listen to podcasts in order to improve your well-being!
