6 Wellness Podcasts You Need to Listen to, Right Now

Motivation
Meditation

As the weather warms up and our energy levels increase, it can be a great time to reevaluate our intentions for the year. My favorite way to press the reset button? Podcasts. By creating an atmosphere of growth and learning, I can tune into some added wellness inspiration to boost my happiness in a big way. 

Start your mental spring cleaning with these six inspiring podcasts, each of which explores different components of wellness. The best part? You can listen to them while doing other good-for-you activities, like finding your zen in yoga, going for a walk, meal prepping, or during your evening skincare routine.
 

 

Hurry Slowly
Jocelyn K. Glei 
 
Hurry Slowly

Launched last year, this newer podcast already has me hooked. Hurry Slowly tackles the great struggle around having enough time. Host Jocelyn K. Glei offers thoughtful advice on how to boost productivity, concentration, and creativity while reducing stress. The secret? Slowing down, occasionally unplugging from our devices, getting outside, and paying attention to our surroundings. Paired with insightful interviews with psychologists, researchers, and other thought leaders, Glei’s astute observations are definitely worth a listen.

From creating weekly phone dates with your best friend to setting aside a “power hour” to get all your errands done ASAP, these ladies will have you rethinking your routine. Each episode contains easy, try-this-at-home tips to create lasting healthy habits, how-to’s for habit change, and ways to tackle difficult problems based on your personality type. When you need a little motivation to get more sleep, eat better, procrastinate less, or make time for fun (who doesn’t?), this one’s for you!

10% Happier with Dan Harris

After suffering a panic attack on live TV, ABC news anchor Dan Harris turned to meditation to help heal the underlying causes of his anxiety. Initially a skeptic, his experience was transformative and led him to write a book, create this podcast, and develop an app, all called 10% Happier. Determined to bring meditation into the mainstream, Harris’ conversations with everyone from the Dalai Lama to RuPaul provide relatable advice and useful tools for how to reap the benefits of mindfulness and to create a meditation practice for yourself—even if it’s just one minute a day.       
 
 

Dear Sugar Radio
NPR 
 
Dear Sugar Radio

This one tugs at your emotional heartstrings and really makes you think. Before the success of her memoir Wild, Cheryl Strayed was “Sugar,” the anonymous author of an advice column in which she answered letters from readers struggling with issues, from heartbreak and family drama to gender identity and financial problems. Strayed and co-host Steve Almond read select letters aloud, offering heartfelt, non-judgmental, and deeply insightful advice with an incredible sense of humor. When you need a little perspective on your own obstacles, Dear Sugar is the antidote.
 
 

Magic Lessons Podcast
The Blissful Mind
 
Magic Lessons

Elizabeth Gilbert (of Eat Pray Love fame) adapted her most recent book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, into this inspiring podcast. If you’ve ever started a creative project and gotten stuck halfway—or maybe have been too scared to get started at all—Magic Lessons is your answer. Each episode, Gilbert speaks with a listener who is struggling with their creativity, offers her wisdom, and then calls on fellow writers, artists, and musicians for further insight into the creative process. She gives her protégées “homework assignments” to help them get unstuck and move past their fears, all with her signature wit and nurturing encouragement.


Whether you want a little pick-me-up or need some healthy habit hacks, there’s a wellness podcast for that. Plug in your headphones and turn the volume up on some inspirational (and realistic) insight!
