It’s FRI-YAY!!! In case you weren’t already aware of that! 😉 YAY for weekends and putting productive weeks behind us, right? Who else totally rocked this past week in true goal digger fashion? I sure hope you did! If you saw my post from yesterday, you probably saw we’ve had our heads buried deep into some serious house work lately! Our house goals are being marked off one at at time and we’re pretty excited with all the progress! But, along with “work” goals, I’ve also been tackling some personal development goals as well and setting my sights on a few new goals for 2018 in that department too! One of the ways I like to work on my personal development is by listening to podcasts while I work! Anyone else a huge podcast fan? I know i’ve brought it up here before, but I’m such a huge fan of plugging away at some work while listening to my favorite podcast episodes to help me grow non-stop! I’m completely obsessed with this podcasting generation that we’re into these days because there’s literally a podcast for anyone on any topic! Similar to YouTube, it’s just like overflowing free information that’s constantly at our fingertips to help develop new ways of thinking and growing!
For today’s Friday 5, I thought I work share my top 5 favorite podcasts that I’m loving right now! I’m always adding more to my list, but these are at the top of my favorites list right now! If you’re a podcast lover just like me, I would love to hear what your favorites are right now too! Share them in the comments below!
So, let’s get right to it!
1) Pursuit with Purpose with Melissa Griffin
Seriously, I couldn’t love this podcast any more than I already do! But, somehow with each and every episode that Melissa puts out, I love it even more! From tips and conversations about creating better habits, or setting realistic goals and getting rid of those negative self-inflicted comparison thoughts–every episode is packed full with such great information! I get so excited when I see a new episode available with Pursuit with Purpose because I KNOW without a doubt that it’s going to filled with juicy good information that I can’t wait to get my hands (or should I say ears? ;)) on!
2) Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations
Oh man, Oprah wins again! I’ve always known Oprah is amazing for so many things, but she has literally taken the cake with her podcast, Super Soul Conversations! Her guests are seriously the best of the best and her episodes and conversations with them leave you feeling more inspired than ever before! From Eckhart Tolle to Deepak Chopra to Brene’ Brown and even Alanis Morissette, she interviews some serious rockstars! I can’t recommend this podcast enough because the episodes aren’t just too crazy long, but they’re loaded with such good life-giving information that you can apply to everything that you do!
3) The Luscious Living Podcast
Betsy and Laura have seriously hit it out of the park with their podcast, The Luscious Living Podcast! I stumbled across them on Instagram one day and fell in love from the first episode! Each show is filled with “luscious” bites of information for girl-boss hustlers and go-getters that make you just want to chase down every goal on your list RIGHT NOW! The thing that I love most about these two and their personalities is the real-ness that they bring to each episode and interview. They make you feel like they’re right there with you through the hard times and the good times that being your own boss can bring. They’ve been there, they’re living through it and are proof that when you put your head down and get to work, your dreams can become a reality and I just love it!
4) ALI ON THE RUN SHOW
Okay, so one of my favorite things to do is to plan out my long(er) runs and walks and pick a podcast to go with it! Nothing passes the time like zoning out to my favorite podcasts while tackling some serious miles at the same time! Well, put running miles together with running podcasts and you’ve got the most perfect combination! It never fails, when I’m listening to runners talk about running, it makes me 10x more motivated to run harder and stronger! That’s exactly why I love the Ali On The Run Show so much! She interviews some of the most awesome guests and they’re just so incredibly inspirational with not just their running, but in life too! The people she has on her show bring such a bright light to hard work and dedication but also balance too! From olympic runner, Kara Goucher to Janae from the Hungry Runner Girl, she has some of THE best runner guests out there! This podcast just gets better and better with each episode!
5) The Life Coach School Podcast with Brooke Castillo
The Life Coach School Podcast is another REALLY inspiring show that leaves you feeling super-charged with motivation and inspiration. Brooke Castillo shares so many good thoughts on ways that she’s grown her own life through creating real life-changing habits that propelled her forward in her business as a Health and Life Coach. She shares raw and real conversations that stop you in your tracks and force you to ask yourself some serious questions about what you’re doing and WHY you’re doing it. What really drew me to this podcast is the self-development concept that is so vital to me and it’s something that I’m constantly working on in myself each and every day! From overcoming fear and living with vulnerability whoas, her show is deep and thought provoking in the best of ways! Do yourself a favor and listen to just one episode and see if you can stop at just one. It’s THAT good, I promise!
And, just like that I’m already at the end of my Top 5 favorite podcasts! I have SO many more to share, so I’ll be making a second post filled with more of my favorite shows! Who knows, I may stumble across a few new ones too! I’ll definitely keep you posted if I do!
Anyways, I hope you have the best Friday and an amazing start to your weekend! Before all of the Christmas craziness kicks in, I hope you get a chance to slow down and take some time for you in the next few days! We mayyyyy even be gearing up for a white Christmas here in Arkansas, so I can’t wait! Nothing screams, SLOW down and relax like a few good snow days, right?
Alright guys, enjoy your day!! I’ll talk to you tomorrow for another round of reviews!!
