Self-care Podcasts during Self-Isolation

Incorporating mindful practices into your daily routine can help calm anxiety and build healthy coping skills. The podcast industry offers some exceptional options that can help us achieve and implement mindfulness as we continue to work together to ‘flatten the curve’ and spread of COVID-19. Here are a few of our favourites that we recommend you explore – you might find something that’s ideal for you and your family:

Headspace – “Mindfulness for your every day life. Meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and sleep better. Headspace is meditation made simple, teaching you life-changing mindfulness skills in just a few minutes a day.” 

10 Percent Happier – “Dan Harris, a veteran news reporter, breaks down the science of meditation in his podcast, Ten Percent Happier. Prior to making meditation part of his daily routine, Harris was skeptical about the importance of mindfulness and meditation. But after having a panic attack on live TV, he realized something needed to change, and now he is a believer. He shares his story, along with the science and benefits of meditation from experts on his weekly show.”

On Being with Krista Tippett – “On Being is a podcast that has been awarded the Peabody Award for great conversation and information. This mindfulness podcast talks about some of the most animating questions at the core of our lives, such as what it means to be human and how people really want to live their lives. These questions are explored in a rich and complex manner and applied to our 21st-century lives.”

Unlocking Us with Brené Brown – “Join researcher and #1 New York Times best-selling author Brené Brown as she unpacks and explores the ideas, stories, experiences, books, films, and music that reflect the universal experiences of being human, from the bravest moments to the most brokenhearted.”
